Vanilla and GoLive CS2

I use Vanilla to create a message board that is part of my site: http://www.mormonmomma.com/board Since I use GoLive for my site management, I like having it within GoLive, but since the upgrade to v1, I've broken the board a number of times, while just going about my usual business. Is there a better way? I'm toying with the idea of making the board a subdomain (is that the righ term?), such as: message.mormonmomma.com Any thoughts about these two things? Particularly how to manage the board within GoLive? Alison

    I've never used GoLive, but if it's anything like Dreamweavers site management (which is terrible from past experiences) I would recommend just managing everything with a good text editor and ftp client. I guess it's better to understand exactly how and what you managed to break within GoLive to understand the question better.

    Thanks lech. I wish I knew. Eventually, I fixed the whole board on the server and then downloaded it, replaced the one in GoLive with the working copy and uploaded again--presumably uploading an identical copy. Still broke, so I'm assuming GoLive manipulated the files somehow. Perhaps I'll just pull it out of GoLive as you suggest.

    If you're bent on managing the site with golive, then another suggestion would be to treat each version indipendantly. 1.0 seperate from previous versions, and only share the configuration files between the two if it's necessary. That would greatly reduce any future goof-ups at the cost of managing another golive "virtual site" or whatever they're calling it these days. As long as you can track and validate your own actions, you can narrow down what golive chowed down upon and barfed up to your server causing problems. I'd suggest snagging a copy of filezilla and conTEXT and leave golive for the quick hack and slash layout builder when (and if) it's needed. The URLs to get you started: http://filezilla.sf.net/ & http://context.cx/ They're both great applications and free to use and abuse like Vanilla with about the same range (or more) features you'd find in similar apps. Anyone else with other free alternative apps for ftp/sftp/ssh and highlighted editing for windows/nix/mac toss in your two cents here:
