Help please.
I suspect this has quite a simple answer, but it's throwing me at present. When I want to preview my page in a a browser, Dreamweaver 8 is automatically accessing my site on the server rather than previewing locally.
Have I got something turned on that should be off, if so could someone please advise?

when you set or defined your site you will have pointed a url dialog field to your remote site. Change this to your local address (localhost)..

you will need a web server installed locally and you need to view local files through http or you may run into problems
