i've just started learning dreamweaver and i would like to develop a website. i would like to add a login page with a username and password. by referrring to a book, it says after clicking the submit button, i have to choose User Authentication list in Application category on the Insert bar so that the Log In User dialog box opens but in my dreamweaver, when i choose Application category, i cant see any User Authentication options. how do i get this? i really need help. is it something to do with server behaviors? if yes, how do i do it? please help :( ..thanks
