There are a number of ways you can manage your site content on Business Catalyst. From an online WYSIWYG editor, SFTP, to an integrated Dreamweaver component. 

Note:

if you have created your site in Muse, not all editing options below are available on your site. See the below section for more details.

Sites created in Muse

If you created a site from Muse, the options to edit pages in Business Catalyst are disabled. The editing options are disabled because there’s no round-tripping workflow between Muse and Business Catalyst. If you modify the page in Business Catalyst, your changes will be overwritten the next time you update the page in Muse and upload it to Business Catalyst. 

If you need to make edits to a page, work on the page in Muse and upload the page to Business Catalyst again. See Adobe Muse Help and Tutorials.

You can enable the editing options in Business Catalyst as follows:

  1. Select My Details from the toolbar menu that displays your name.
  2. Select the Enable Online Content Editing option.

Manage content using SFTP

You can use SFTP to connect to your site and upload pages, templates, and other files such as images.

  • Protocol - SFTP / SSH File Transfer Protocol
  • Port - 22

  • Password - Your admin login password

Connect to your site, download the content you would like to update, then upload the content back to your site. For more details on managing content using SFTP, see Connect to your site using SFTP.
