Recent Updates

Standard

Though it’s not obvious, adding new posts isn’t the only way in which I update this blog. Several changes aren’t as visible since they don’t get pushed via RSS and Twitter feeds. I maintain a few pages that I update infrequently. In addition, I regularly revisit old posts and add updates with new information. Included below are pages and posts that have been updated within the last few months:

Resolving Problems Syncing iPhone App Docs with iCloud (When Using Multiple, Migrated MobileMe Accounts)

Standard

I migrated our MobileMe accounts to iCloud the day it was released, after updating my iPhone to iOS 5. I was using two accounts. One account is my primary and I synched mail, calendars, contacts, etc using it. I had another account that I only used for e-mail.

Overall, my transition to iOS 5 and migration of the accounts went without any major issues.

For each app I turned on the “Use iCloud” option but every time I opened one of the apps the setting reverted back to off and in the iCloud Website it just showed the intro pages for the apps.

Dreamweaver Delete Confirmation Warns Links to a File Exist After They’ve Been Removed

Standard

Here’s the scenario: You remove links from pages (and templates) that point to a file you are about to delete. After careful inspection you’ve determined all of the links are gone. However, when you delete the file from within Dreamweaver a confirmation dialog appears stating that other pages are still linked to the file.

This is an internal cache issue. It seems that Dreamweaver doesn’t always update the cache to track links within a site.

At this point you could just continue and let it delete the file. However, the safest method is to simply close Dreamweaver and then re-open it. This way you’ll know if you missed any links because it will again show if there are any pages linking to the file, but this time the cache will have been updated.

I’ve seen this in happen Dreamweaver CS5 for Mac and I’m certain I’ve also seen it in previous versions, too.
