I am having trouble laying out my website in dreamweaver. I have tried first using fireworks then importing to dreamweaver but it only imports as an image and I have also tried the table-ing method. To be honest, I'm a beginner and I don't know how to work with codes. I did work with them a few years back but I cannot recall how to use them. Can someone please help me find a simple way to layout my website with flexibility or at least more flexi that dreamweaver initially provides.
Coding is a necessity if you are serious about getting into web design. And Dreamweaver is not really a beginner's tool. Adobe is trying to develop a tool called Muse ( http://muse.adobe.com ) which is currently available as a beta, but will be subscription only after it is released.
Otherwise, I think the best place to point you is this tutorial showing how to go from a Fireworks layout into Dreamweaver.
