I unfortunately lost my localhost files and need to update my website. Is there a guide to downloading the last deploy then editing the content before uploading. I can’t write html which is why I wrote it using wordpress then converting to a static site before uploading. At the moment it looks as if I will have to rewrite the site which is a pity as most of it correct.
hi there, go ahead and give what is described here a try:
Thanks for the reply. I read this link and have the deploy on my hard disc. The question I have is how to edit/update this deploy before uploading to netlify. I haven’t managed to master github and wonder if there is a simpler alternative.
@Rod_C If you’ve got the archive from a previous deploy downloaded, you could always extract it and directly edit the files, (depending of course on how they were originally created - if they’ve been minified/obfuscated etc).
Once you’ve got the edited files you could then drag them up via a “Drag and drop” deploy (Create deploys | Netlify Docs).
Thanks for the reply, I have deployed the files which were originally written in word press then converted to a static web using “simply Static” in word press then uploaded to Netlify. I appreciate that I will not be able to import the files back into word press but I am looking for simple static file editor that doesn’t rely any knowledge of html. I am assuming that I need to edit the index file of each of the pages that I created initially.
Unfortunately, we can’t help with that part. There might be some tools available out there which can help you with what you need, but that part falls outside our scope of support.
