Does Live Rewrite work on any site?

The simple answer is if there is a login page, it probably won`t work for you. Technically Live Rewrite requires FTP access and .htm or .html files. Any content on a website that is dynamic is going to cause issues

What happens when the trial expires?

At the end of the trial if you don`t signup for the given plan you will be automatically downgraded to the Basic plan. The monthly change limit will start on the day your account is downgraded.
