Hi:


I am building a Web site for my cousin.

He wants his visitors to be able to upload and download things such as pictures, graphics, music, and movies to and from his site.

I do not know how because I am very new to Dreamweaver, especially version 3.

Would someone please help us!

Thank you very much in advance!

Well, I never had much luck with uploading, but I do know of a tutorial:

If you watch the tutorial above, you should be able to figure something out.

As for downloading, how big do you intend on the files being? I would recommend downloading WinRAR (http://www.rarlab.com) (a file archiver/zipper). Then, upload the zipped .rar files to your server. Once you've uploaded said files, just link to them. Not a single browser can read .RAR files, so it's going to force it to be downloaded. That's how I used to do it on my Blogger page (but my files were hosted on DropBox, not the actual server :D).

I hope I helped!
