Creating Web Pages
After your site has been defined, you can access it by clicking on the dropdown menu on the right side of the screen called "Files." Screenshots are from Adobe Dreamweaver CS3, but the instructions should apply similarly to other versions.
All of the folders, pages, images and other files on your site will be listed. To edit one, double click its name. There are two folders used to manage the look of your site, "styles" and "Templates." The stylefolder has a file that controls the color scheme, which can be changed. The templates are used for creating new pages.
To create a new page:
1) Go to File - New. In the top, make sure the Page from Template tab is selected. Also make sure the correct site is chosen in the center, if you have more than one.
2) A list of templates should show up in the middle of the window, each with its own type of layout. Choose one and a blank page is created.
3) It's a good idea to save your page before doing much work on it. Go to File - Save as and choose an appropriate location and name for your page.
4) Naming is important for web pages. You don't want to use spaces or unnecessary characters, like apostraphes, because they'll show up differently in a web browser. To make it easier for people to find your pages, use only letters, numbers and underscores, like "bio_photos_3.html".
