Abstract

Dreamweaver is not just a tool for creating web pages; it’s for creating websites. You create an exact copy of the website on your local computer, tell Dreamweaver how to connect with the remote web server, and upload it. When pages need updating, you download the latest version from the remote server (unless you work on your own and know the remote version hasn’t changed), make any amendments, and upload it again. Even if you don’t yet have a remote server, Dreamweaver expects you to organize your files exactly as they would be in a real site. This is necessary because Dreamweaver needs to keep track of the images and other assets, such as style sheets and JavaScript files that make up each page. If you decide to move files to a different location, Dreamweaver automatically updates internal links, but it can’t do so unless it knows certain basic details about the site. So, defining your site within Dreamweaver is an essential first step before you even think about creating a web page.
