I am a novice to this whole web design thing but I have big dreams of accomplishing a big goal and designing my own website.
I am aiming to create a site similar in concept and design to this one: http://dynamit.us
I am looking to replicate the multi-sized "content boxes" using a grid (which I know can be easily done in DW), and I am looking to have my website automatically "pull" content when the scroll bar reaches the bottom of the page (Facebook is another example of a website that uses this feature).
I am NOT concerned with replicating the animation(s) on the dynamIt website, as can be seen on the photos that have the magnifying glass in the top right corner.
I am thinking about biting the bullet and upgrading my trial version of DW to the full package, but I want to make sure that I am purchasing the correct software to achieve the result I'm aiming to achieve.
Can I create a somewhat simplified version of this website (dynamit.us) using just Dreamweaver (and maybe PS for photo editing)? How do I build a site that pulls "past" or "old" content from a library and "updates" on the page every time the scroll bar reaches the bottom of the page (Infinite Scrolling)?
Dreamweaver is a great tool. It will aid you in achieving your goals. But it won't make you an instant success at professional web development any more than purchasing a fancy, expensive camera makes you an instant success at photography.
Ultimately, a working knowledge of your craft is primary. The tools you use are secondary.
