Default Starting from scratch in Dreamweaver

Hi, I have been browsing these forums for the last couple of days because I have recently purchased Dreamweaver.I am a complete novice and am looking for a good starting point for learning the different aspects of the software.


I was hoping to find some good video tutorials for beginners.Could someone direct me to some links for video tutorials.I have been told that Dreamweavermadesimple is a good place to start.Can anyone recomend this or should I look elsewhere.

Any help would be much appreciated

Make sure you look in the manual for how to at least set up a site first. This is a common noob mistake which will give you heaps of problems afterwards.

youtube has alot of Dreamweaver tutorials, and as the other dude said, setting up a site correctly is key.

Yeah do that... I'm sure we'll be able to give you some 'constructive' criticism...

Welcome

Well im sorry I have not got back to you earlier with the finished article but I am having a few difficultys.I have created my site in Dreamweaver and it looks fine, the one problem I have is that the Template I used:

http://www.freewebsitetemplates.com/...ead.php?t=2471

Once i go to my live site the template does not show up in the background, it just shows a white background instead.Is there a way of working in dreamweaver while showing what it will look like online.

I spent quite some time getting it right in Dreamweaver only for it to look completely different once I bought a domain and webspace.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Did you preview it in a browser - this is simple. Just press F12 whilst in DW.

Other than that, eg if you have dynamic code, you'll need a local server set up or just upload it and keep checking it. I prefer to do it this way.
