Sample Dreamweaver Websites

May 11, 2009 9:51 AM

Hi All.  I'm new here.  I've used iWeb in the past, but decided to take a step up and learn Dreamweaver.  I start a class in June.

 

I'd love to see samples of your websites made with Dreamweaver.

    Dreamweaver is fairly straightforward to learn once you understand HTML and CSS code.   Good coding practices are universal whether you use DW or a plain text editor to build your pages.  Focus on learning how to work with code and everything else will fall into place.

    Anyone want to give me a link to their website, that they built in Dreamweaver??  I'd love to see your work.

     

    I think you are missing the concept that Nancy tried to convey. "Built in Dreamweaver" has no real meaning as to the appearance or performance of a Web site. It is the HTML/CSS (and more) that have meaning here.

     

    Consider two houses. One built with a manual hammer[1] and the other built with a powered nail gun. Which is better? Do you think it was the tool that created the better house? Or do you think it was careful planning, understanding of the technology, and implementation - regardless of the tool - that resulted in the better house? DW is just a tool.

     

    FWIW, in all the sites I've been involved in, not a single one was built 100% in Dreamweaver. I use various tools to create the desired output for browsers.

    I couldn't have said this any better, Mark. 

     

    And while I don't use the entire Adobe suite of products, I do use DW, Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash authoring apps and a truckload of other wares I have collected over the years.  If the OP really wants to see what I do, he can peruse my site at http://alt-web.com

    I agree with Mark, too.  The GENUINELY important thing is that you understand HTML and CSS.  Beyond that point, the tool you use is immaterial.

    there's no code used there.

     

    Au contraire!  You cannot have a webpage without HTML.  But iWeb goes to great extremes to protect you from that reality.  Of course it makes a complete mess under the hood by doing so, but, meh.....  I guess you are only supposed to build them, not maintain them!
