Hello


How do you create a widget for dreamweaver? i.e I have two navigation panels which need to be on every page, and the site is going to get bigger every month. Is there a way to create a widget so I can quickly add it to a site very quickly?

Or would a template be better?

A template s probably the best bet although you can save object and chunks of code as snippets.

If the site is going to continually grow, you also might want to consider using a Content Management System as opposed to creating a static site in Dreamweaver.

if its just navigation use a database and echo out the results , you will just need a update form not a whole cms system then
