Editing a Site Definition

You may need to change properties of your site definition or add information that you left out when you initially defined the site. The Edit Sites dialog box, shown in Figure 3.12, enables you to modify any of the sites you have defined in Dreamweaver. You can create a new site here or edit, duplicate, or remove an existing site. Open the Edit Sites dialog box by selecting the Edit Sites command from the Site menu.

Figure 3.12 The Edit Sites dialog box enables you to edit, duplicate, or remove existing sites.

Select the site you just created, and click the Edit button in the Edit Sites dialog box. The Site Definition dialog box opens again. Click on the Advanced tab at the top of the dialog box. This is another view of the information that you entered into the wizard, shown in Figure 3.13. There are categories on the left side of the dialog box with the selected category's properties displayed on the right.

Figure 3.13 The Advanced tab contains all of the site properties.

In the Local Info category, select the folder icon next to the Default Images Folder textbox. Navigate to the images folder you just created. Now Dreamweaver knows where you'll keep your images for the site. Click the OK button to save your changes. Click the Done button to close the Edit Sites dialog box.


You can import and export site definitions to XML files that you can share with others or use to define the site on a different computer. This feature, described in Hour 21, could save you a lot of time.
