          All one sentence?

          Put DW down and read about HTML first. The more you know about HTML the
          easier time you will have learning DW.

          Did you define a local site in DW?

            You call that a sentence? :)

            maybe it's the e. e. cummings influence (without the poetic content)

              No, you are not making sense because you are not using any punctuation or capitalization in your sentences. It's not just for looks - it really helps to communicate better.

                    OK, now we're getting there on punctuation. Just remember that the
                    exclamation mark (singular or plural) is not a direct replacement for a full
                    stop.

                    When you defined your local site, did you supply the information required in
                    the 'Remote Info' section (on the advanced tab in the site definition)? If
                    so, does clicking the 'Test' button come back with good news?

                    If it does, then you can upload your files to your host by pressing the 'Put
                    Files' button (a blue up-arrow) on the Files window (press F8 if it isn't
                    visible).

                    Try both the above, and come back with a progress report.

                    Regards,

                    Pete.

                      It's better. People aren't just trying to give you a hard time. It's
                      difficult enough to convey complex ideas when reading and writing
                      messages here. When the language, or typography makes it harder, people
                      will often just not bother to answer. One key to getting help is to help
                      people help you by trying to make your messages easy to read and
                      understand.

                      I hope you get it sorted out.

                          experienced GL user doesnt "get" DW site concpet. Sure, I can create a DW site and work on it. But with GL I have a "Site File"- a document which is in a Site Folder created by GL. How does DW handle this? Need to know for backup- I want to back up Site document and all Site assetts in 1 folder.

                            Could you please post a new thread rather than piggybacking onto this one,
                            you will have a better chance at getting a response.

                              As would using a descriptive subject header. 'new to dreamweaver' tells
                              me nothing about the question.

                                    you create your site folder yourself when you define a site in Dreamweaver. All your site files
                                    reside in this folder, if you save them there.

                                      to recieve good and useful answers to your incoherent question, and are
