Hour 22. Reusing Items in Your Web Site with the Library

When designing Web pages, you can create library items from objects that you use often. If you update a library item, it can update everywhere throughout your site. This is very handy!

Library items help you maintain consistency in your Web site. They also allow you to share design elements with other Web developers. When you are in the design phase of your Web site, you should be thinking about common elements that would be appropriate to create as Dreamweaver library items.

You can turn all sorts of objects into library items. For instance, a navigation bar that is present in many of the pages in your Web site would be an excellent candidate for a library item. When you need to add a new button to the navigation bar, it is simple to add the button to the original library item and then update your entire site automatically with the change.

  • How to create a library item from both existing content and from scratch

  • How to add a library item to a Web page
