View Full Version : Visually editing pasted code from outside site in design mode in DW

08-04-2010, 04:49 PM
K, so I work for a small packaging firm and I do little bits of web admin for our site. I have been asked to make the banners of the homepage and other pages thicker and I am able to (within the site admin) view the code and ideally what I'd like to do is copy and paste the code into Dreamweaver CS5 on the code side and then be able to switch to design view and see visually what the code (HTML & CSS) represents and be able to edit it in the design side.

I tried it and pasting the code works, but I can't figure out how to make it show up on the design side.

Please help if you know the answer :confused:

...and copy, paste and switch to design view doesn't do it? Have you got the CSS file as well?

Are you pasting the code into design view or code view.

Also, as Corrosive indicated, if there are linked files (such as CSS) you'll need to link to them or copy that code as well to see what's really there.

What admin tool are you using on your website?
