Chapter 20. Managing Your Web sites

Chapter 20. Managing Your Web sites

Once you're ready to put a page—or an entire site—up on the Web for the whole world to see, you don't have to leave Dreamweaver. The Site window (Figure 20.1) is a full-fledged, handy-dandy FTP client—a built-in tool for putting files on the Web, or uploading them. You can also use Dreamweaver to get files from the Web, or download them.

Figure 20.1. The Site window is not only a file management tool, but also a full-fledged FTP client.


Now in Dreamweaver 4, you can also put files up on the Web without leaving the Document window. The new toolbar includes a file management menu (Figure 20.2) that lets you upload saved files while you're working and download files into the Document window.

Also in this chapter, you'll find out about other site management tools, such as the site map (Figure 20.3) and file synchronization.

Tip

If you skipped Chapter 2, go back and use it to help you set up a local site. You can't manage a site without doing this.


Tip

Chapter 21, Workflow & Collaboration, covers tools for workgroups, such as tracking changes using checkout names, design notes, and site reports that tell you who's working on which file.
