I have been using Dreamweaver and I really love it, but there
is one thing that kinda bothers me and I am hoping a change in some
settings will help. My website is pretty big with lots of images
and PDF's - some videos. I would say there is probably some 10,000
plus pages in both the private and public parts of my site.
When I open Dreamweaver, it thinks for awhile as it loads the
cache, and when I shut it down, I suppose the cache is being
cleared or something as it can take up to 3 minutes to close.
How can I speed this up? By the way, the smaller sub-sites do
not behave this way as the caching is much smaller.
I had this problem and when looking at the page file sizes on
my pc, I found that each page was over 600kb, this seemed strange
as it is onlt html code.
Upon investigation it turned out that a menu, created in
Fireworks had somehow had hundreds of behaviors for one of the
dropdowns copied on top of each other. The page code showed this.
Once I fixed this problem by deleting the behaviors and
remaking just one the pages were only 20k and the whole thing
worked a lot faster.
