View Full Version : 2 seconds idiot

this is my first time playing around with DW. 2 seconds into it and I have created a HUGE mess. I CReated my first site on the desktop... but.. I have included all the files on my desktop as resources for my site. In a attempt to correct this problem... long story short.. I deleted my desktop files... YAY for me. what do I do now. I am going to recover them.. but... how do I start all over again fresh? HELP. and then I will ask other questions.

got it. thanks.

Start with the manual (!) :) This is mandatory to do before asking questions. Asking here is not an excuse for not reading the documentation.

Dreamweaver deals with sites in a special way. Set up a directory for your site and start with defining the site in DW (in the 'site definition' area).

I'd recommend you going to youtube and search for some tuts on there. There are some great ones by a chic named Michelle and some by a wide world of web design.
I'm used to using tables and am learning css now.
You'll be doing yourself a favor by getting a cup of coffee, no... a pot of coffee and watching some tuts first.
I bought a book, Mastering CSS and Dreamweaver and have read parts, not all of it. I told my wife "Great..now I know...what I didn't know".
I still don't know. :roll:
Good luck

I actually did by a book ... but it is more a reference tool it seems like. I have got youtube up now and cracking into the tuts.. (LOL... childish I know, I just love saying that word). Thank you for your pointers.
