Define a New Site

Dreamweaver is a tool to create websites. So the first thing you have to do is define a site. This helps Dreamweaver to organize the files used in this site.

Step 1 : Create a folder inside your student shortcut folder on the desktop and name it Just Plain Stupid. Create another folder inside this folder and name it Pictures.

Step 2 : Click on Site> New Site. New Site The following window will appear where you can enter the site details under the category Local Info. Notice the Site Name, the local root folder (your student folder on the desktop) and a default image folder (a folder created in your student folder). Make sure the Advanced tab is selected. Also click on the folder beside Local root folder and Default images folder to navigate to your folder.

Local Info

Don't worry about the HTTP address and make sure Cache is checked.

Step 3 : Now Dreamweaver displays the folder contents in the Files panel on the right side. The files are well organized now and Dreamweaver knows where to search for files. Now you are ready to start developing web pages.
