If you have a website, it will be one of two types. Either a CMS (eg wordpress/drupal) which you can login to and easily edit your content Or it will be a static site which unless you want to muck around with a HTML editor and FTP client you are out of luck.

LiveRewrite makes it easy to edit your website. Once logged into Live Rewrite you can visit your website normally and click to edit anything on the page. Once you are done your changes are immediately visible to any of you website visitors.

Any feedback is welcomed.

There are still static websites? Is liverewrite your website, or is it something you find helpful?

Its my website.
There are a lot of static websites still being created today.  That said, I see the main target market as older websites.

How does this work, because if someone has a static website for example, that is hosted by a third party, you can't just edit that content without having to enter in your FTP details. I am guessing it will work similar to Adobe Contribute, but an online version of it. I can see some benefits of this type of system for some old websites. I would suggest some form of previoew and demo, and a portfolio, because people are unlikely to signup to anything without actually trying it out.

@gzt thanks, thats not the first time I've done that, I'm sure it won't be the last!

@mattwmz According to the wikipedia page on Adobe Contribute you need a "publishing server" whatever that means. Live Rewrite just requires FTP details. I agree about a demo, I've built a demo but I think I need a page less complex to demonstrate it on

Can you create new pages with this? If not, I'm not sure of the long term value - how many times would a static page need to be changed really...

Personally, I'm a Notepad++ &NppFTP kind of guy - pretty much live updating for me. 

Either way, best of luck.

@jeeves not yet, but I plan to,  its clearly not aimed at you then, if you are already using notepad++ you'll want a lot more control over the source. But if you are doing websites for others .... :)
