File Sync

Mountee communicates directly with the database – every save is saved directly, unlike EE’s file sync which uses the created file – and only syncs via the control panel. For that reason, we encourage people to who have been using ExpressionEngine’s file sync, to synchronise templates and switch this feature off.

The reason for this is that if you have been working with EE’s generated files, the database versions of the files won’t be up to date. So if you start using Mountee, you’ll see the older versions of the template stored in your database.
