    Adding my enter button...

    sceenname00123 Level 1

      Hi, two questions.  The first is where can I find quality, inexpensive Adobe classes/instruction?  Or what's the best way to learn the programs now that I have purchased them.  The second is I have dreamweaver cs4 and I simply want to add a custom "enter" button on the front page, how do I do that?

       

      Thanks in advance...sorry for the simple questions but I am just learning and looking for a good resource for training.

          That's three questions!

           

          The first is where can I find quality, inexpensive Adobe classes/instruction?

          You could start with adobe.  They offer plenty of help.  If you Google you'll get plenty to choose from.

           

          Or what's the best way to learn the programs now that I have purchased them.

          That depends on what you like or what you're used to.  There are some good books out there like David Powers' DW book and the Missing Manual series offering.  For me, I think the best thing is to set a task and research it.  You will find though, that learning DW is based on learning the basics of web building and that will include getting to grips with CSS/HTML.  The more you know about that the easier DW will become.

           

          The second is I have dreamweaver cs4 and I simply want to add a custom "enter" button on the front page, how do I do that?

          So perhaps, this is your first task you have set yourself?  I'm guessing that you are wanting a site with a landing page that contains a llink to the rest of the content?  If that's the case you need to get yourself a button or create one, put it in your page, make it a link that links to the page that you are interested in.  If that is the question, I am guessing too that you might need to get a few of those tutorials under your belt.

            Search engines like content.  The more keyword rich content you have on your first page (the all important domain name page), the better.  That's how people are going to find you.  When you have your content written, add a CSS menu with links to all your other site pages.

             

            As Martin said, start by learning HTML and CSS coding basics.  This will make DW much easier to learn.
