    Hey guys!

    I have a serious question to ask. I am currently working on our company's website using Dreamweaver 8. We are a real estate corporation so we focus on heavy data driven pages. As far as I go, I don't know much server-side code, so we have someone else that lives halfway across the country taking care of this. While I am using Dreamweaver, he is using Visual Studio to build pages. The problem lies in 2 things though.

    1) When he publishes his work it overwrites everything that I do. But it gets worse. VS DELETES EVERYTHING in the target directory before it publishes, and then copys everything. This sucks because some of the pages aren't and do not have to be aspx pages (i.e. static content pages), and VS deletes them.

    2) I have to reassemble the programmers code quite often. Now this doesn't bother me too much because I understand that he's a programmer and not a designer. I have enough knowledge to move any of his ASPX code where I need it and figure out when to add something. Right now what he is doing is taking the pages I've written and copying/pasting the code into his project. But VS is rewriting the code.

    I need a solution that is going to work for both of us. Should I move to VS because of the amount of ASPX pages that we have going on here? Any ideas would be more than helpful.

    ASPX (ASP.NET) is one of the languages built into Visual Studio.net 2003 and Visual Studio 2005, so I would recommend that.

    Is it an easy migration?

    It would be difficult for me to tell without having more insider knowledge about your situation (i.e., having worked there). One thing I can say for sure is that getting away from Dreamweaver for site management has been bliss.
