I am in the process of changing my site from mostly text to text, pictures, a menu bar, etc.
Do I have to change the pages one at a time or is there an easier way to do this? I found a site that said DW had a proprietary system that would allow me to do this, but I can't find this system in the program. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I don't understand the question but, as a guess, are you asking how to add repetitive elements, such as a navigation bar, to a page once so that it appears the same on every page?
Yes I think that's what I'm asking. Basically I'm going from page that have a few links at the top of the page and some text to pages that
have a menu bar on the left side, pictures and text. Is there any way to do that in one shot or do I have to change the pages over one at a time?
There's no magic button to set things up in a single process as you are planning.
Dreamweaver has Templates and Library Items.
You create your Template including all repetitive elements such as navbars then create child pages from that Template. There's plenty of info in DW's Help system and online tutorials about DW Templates.
