Q&A

Q.

How do I import a website into Dreamweaver?

A.

There is no set procedure for importing a site. You simply define a site exactly as you did this hour, pointing to the root directory of the site you’d like to import. Dreamweaver presents all the files in the Files panel, enabling you to open and edit them. If the site you need to import is on a web server, you first need to read Hour 20, “Creating a Form and Collecting Data,” and set up remote site settings pointing to the server.

Q.

If I need to move files within my site, is it okay to do it within Dreamweaver?

A.

If you need to do some housekeeping or rearranging, it’s best to do it within Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver automatically updates links to files and warns you if deleting a file will affect other files within your site. Be sure to take care of these tasks within Dreamweaver and not elsewhere; otherwise, you might break links or other dependencies between files in the site.
