You should be able to spot a line of text at the top of the Dreamweaver window that says something like «DW File Edit View Insert Modify Format Commands Site Window Help» and some icons. This generally doesn’t pose a problem for the seasoned webmaster since they know where the issues lie, and how to fix it. Underneath the box is a series of small icons that look like a plus («+»), a minus («-«), a pencil, and two rectangles. By now, you should know that you can read the descriptions for each of these icons by simply hovering your mouse over them.
How to Create a Two Column Web Page with Dreamweaver CS6 Websites can be laid out in a variety of ways. Like the FTP server name that you encountered earlier, this field needs to be completed with a name provided by your web host. If you don’t know where to put your files, ask them. See the picture below if you can’t find it.
The same principle also applies if you’re creating some other sort of website, such as a personal site or a hobby site. This will be the first appearance of the name of your website in the user-visible portion of your web page. Replace the existing word in the «File name» field with «index.html» (without the quotes), and click the «Save» button. Otherwise visitors reaching your main page will be at a loss as to how to proceed from there.
Incidentally, if you think that the text reads like instructions written in technical jargon, you’re not wrong. Both your content and navigation aids (the links/buttons to the other pages on your site) are immediately obvious to your visitors, making it easy for them to read your content as well as access the other pages on your site. Once you have settled this user-visible title, move on to replace the text in the rest of the right column (not the left column). Review what I said earlier about some of the things that should go into a home page if you’re not sure how to proceed. This is the directory (or «folder», in layman’s terms) in which your web pages are supposed to be placed.
Yes, you can see the tooltips even for the greyed out (disabled) icons. Again, like the «Manage Sites» dialog box you saw earlier, the dialog box is dominated by a large white list box, currently with nothing listed.
Just wait for everything to be done and all the pop-up dialog boxes have disappeared. Yes, I know your page is not finished yet. And there are other aspects of your website that you can’t check without a «live» site.
After a while, a dialog box with the title «Dependent Files» and the message «Should dependent files be included in the transfer» will appear. You’ll also learn to add interactive elements to your sites, such as HTML5-compatible video and animation, get guidance for working with code, and finally publish a finished site to the Web.
That is, do it the same way you scroll your web browser window when reading this chapter. There are 10 volumes of 169 chapters in total with over 1,000 pages for most CS6 products. This will save your site definition, dismiss the «Site Setup» dialog box and return you to the main Dreamweaver window.
You have actually published your first web page. Nonetheless, it’s a vital part of your web page that you must always set, unless you prefer your web page to be known as «Untitled Document» in the search engines and your visitors’ bookmarks. Just ignore this for now. At the bottom of your page, you will see another horizontal band cutting across both columns of your web page. Now click the pencil icon (with the tooltip «Edit existing Server») instead of the «+» icon that you used previously.
