Lesson 1. The Present and the Future > Defining a Static Site

Defining a Static Site

The Newland Tours site as you are inheriting it is a static HTML site. For this reason, you can easily pull it into Dreamweaver and start working on it.

As you probably know, Dreamweaver's integrated site management system doesn't let you open just any HTML file—you have to define a site first. Defining a site has several benefits, many of which you will see quickly. It helps prevent broken links, automatically updating files site-wide if you move or rename a file. The Site Manager also enables you to perform site-wide operations, such as Find and Replace, which greatly boosts productivity. Another key advantage of the Site Manager is that it has built-in file uploading capabilities (including FTP), which means you can put your files on the Web whenever you want, with the click of a single button.
