Dreamweaver and CMS

I'm hoping someone can help me and I appreciate this has been brought to everyones attention about 1000 times over but there is still some things I need to be made clear...


I'm new to the world of website design/CMS and I have a new client who wishes to update a series of different blogs in her website, but she wants a very unique design created. I'm using illustrator, slicing it up and then adding it into dreamweaver, can a cms blog such as wordpress be put into an ap div or a particular section of the website so I am still able to keep this unique design she has requested?


I've read so many forums/sites explaining how it works I just wanted to clear it up. Will I have to confirm to my client that its either a particular blog design or no blog and having the design?


Hope this makes sense.


I'd really appreciate some feedback!


Thanks alot

    You can't do it quite the way you describe. You need to learn how to edit a wordpress template/design and adjust to the way WP does things.



    Few people use Illustrator for building web graphics but I do. But don't use Illustrator slices. Don't let any graphics program write code for you. Instead use the Illustrator artboard tool to define the graphic chunks.

    Look at Adobe Business Catalyst which includes InContext CMS with your hosting.

    Check out Konductor CMS if you want full design control and no server-side setup. The interface for your clients is fully in-context as well.
