Defining a Site in Dreamweaver

  • We need to setup our website within Dreamweaver to take advantage of Dreamweaver features
  • Once we define our site, Dreamweaver can help to maintain the links between our files, images, and other content between the web pages
  • Define a site once and Dreamweaver stores the information
  • Steps to defining a site:
    1. Go to Site->Manage Sites
    2. Click the new Site button
    3. Name your site (this is the name that shows up in the Files panel, you can use spaces)
    4. Click the folder in the Local Site Folder area and browse to your root folder, the folder that contains the files from the chapter 6 course files-begin
  • We just defined a local site in Dreamweaver so all of our files are visible in the Files panel and Dreamweaver can assist us in working with them
