Dreamweaver Fundamentals Training
Adobe Dreamweaver is a powerful What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) web page editor that allows anyone to build static or
dynamic websites without coding - although it also allows experienced developers to directly code part or all of a page if they prefer. While you use
Dreamweaver's intuitive point-and-click or drag-and-drop tools to design pages, Dreamweaver creates standards-based HTML and CSS automatically.
Our Introductory Dreamweaver training course starts you off with practical hands-on instruction that enables you to master the basics of website design and development.
Understanding Dreamweaver Basics
Creating a Basic Page
Even the most complex web page begins with three simple elements: text, graphics and links. Learning how to add and position these elements on a page also allows you to glimpse the code that Dreamweaver crafts in the background, and to understand more about the relationship between HTML and CSS. This section will teach you how to:
Adding Hyperlinks and Image Tools
In the previous exercise we introduced you to some basics, but Dreamweaver offers a multitude of ways to work with auxiliary files such as image and hyperlinked files. Since linking and the relationships between files are largely what characterize the web, Dreamweaver provides a rich toolset for creating inter-file relationships. After this exercise, you will be able to:
Developing Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
An attention-getting site is composed of its design aspects: fonts, colors, spacing and layout. On the web, these aesthetics are not handled with
HTML, but rather with a different language specifically suited for design and styling called CSS.
Dreamweaver: Working with Tables
When web sites were first being developed, designers used tables - essentially just rows and columns - to structure the page. Although much less functional and adaptable than CSS, tables are still used for sections of a page (or occasionally a whole page), so understanding tables and their various components is important. After completing this section you should be able to:
Publishing Your Website with Dreamweaver
Once you finish building your web site locally, you need to test the web site to ensure it behaves the way you intended it. We show you how to quickly test for broken links, to ensure all images display correctly, and to spell check every page. We will also show you how to upload your site and maintain it. After completing this section, you should be able to:
