In this book, we focus primarily on the skills and technologies involved in creating indi-vidual web pages. As a result, we do not spend much time discussing complete websites. Creating an effective website is a difficult process, requiring planning, effort and time.
Dreamweaver is a powerful tool for creating and maintaining a website. To create a site using Dreamweaver, first open the Files panel either by selecting Files from the Window menu or by pressing F8. Click the Manage Sites… link in the Files panel’s drop-down list, or click the link to the right of this menu, to open the Manage Sites dialog. From this dialog, a developer can access previously created websites or create new ones. To create a new website, click the New… button in the Manage Sites dialog and select Site from the pop-up list. Then, follow the instructions provided by Dreamweaver’s Site Definition Wizard. Once completed, site files can be viewed, accessed and added in the File panel.
In general, pages in a website should have consistent colors and styles to maintain site uniformity. Dreamweaver’s Assets panel holds elements common to a website, such as pictures, colors and links. Open the Assets panel by selecting Assets from the Window menu or pressing F11.
While Dreamweaver is a valuable aid in website creation, it is not a replacement for thorough knowledge of XHTML and the related scripting languages taught in this book. Be sure to familiarize yourself with these other technologies before using Dreamweaver to accelerate the development process.
