I have a web site using HTML, But I have recently purchased Dreamweaver. I opened the box, read the book and loaded the software. I am lost. Do they make a Dreamweaver for Dummies?

Hi Denise,

How did you make your current website? Writing code in text files?

Dreamweaver will be really useful for you - but it needs some preliminary 'setting up' to get you going.

First define a site. Name it. Point the local folder to where your site is on your local machine. Enter all of the connection (FTP?) settings into the 'Remote Site' area of site definition. Then follow your nose...

Sorry for the ridiclously brief answer - but I reccomend something like this:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0...9650409-5345260 ('http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0764543423/qid=1110966707/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i1_xgl/026-9650409-5345260')

Hi Denise
I sympathise with you, I am very new to Dreamweaver and torturing myself to persevere.
I beleive it will be worth the effort AND YES there is a Dreamweaver MX for Dummies book available and a copy is sitting on my desk at the moment

Best Regards, a very new & still confused newbie, Quintain

If you buy just one Dreamweaver book in your whole life make it Dreamweaver MX Bible" by Joseph Lowery

24 in the U.K I have borrowed this from the libary over 1000 pages and a c-d rom with tutorials.

Dreamweaver for dummies is only 12 in the U.K very reasonable but those books your libaries can order for you. ask and they may already have them in stock.

Later i'll bring in a couple of tutorials, i'm collecting them lolol
