Can I Edit a ProStores Template with Dreamweaver or FrontPage?

Can I edit my ProStores Template in Dreamweaver or FrontPage?
It is recommended that any edits with a ProStores site be completed through the ProStores design interface.
Our templates are built to work with the ProStores system and incorporate their proprietary store code (SSML).
If you purchase your ProStores template at
, you can choose to have the template applied automatically. The files you receive from PixelMill come with instructions for importing the appropriate images and .tpl file using the ProStores interface.
If you have problems installing the template please email Greg Snow:
email@example.com or call toll free 866-749-3564 x802
The ProStores design interface helps protect the customer from making changes
that could adversely affect the site. ProStores code is very powerful and is the
reason ProStores is an easy to deploy, highly functional eCommerce system.
We do not recommend using FrontPage for anything. The code it produces is no
longer standardized. You can use the Microsoft Expression Web editor to produce
code for ProStores, however, there is no interface to work directly in ProStores
and you will have to import the code from Expression Web into ProStores. Get
Expression Web here:
Technically, edits to ProStores can be made in Dreamweaver, and that code
can be re-imported into the ProStores system. If you want to use the
Dreamweaver Extensions for ProStores please see the link below. If you are not comfortable
with heavy HTML editing, you should not attempt any of this type of direct code
editing using an external editor like Dreamweaver.
Unlike other editors, Dreamweaver can be used to edit ProStores directly.
There are “Dreamweaver Extensions” available for ProStores:
Downloading and Installing Dreamweaver Extensions for ProStores:
You will need to understand the ProStores SSML tagging.

Note: If you see a Web template and would like to have it converted to a ProStores template,
we will be happy to provide a quote for that conversion.
