Hour 1. Understanding the GoLive Interface > Exploring the GoLive Interface

Exploring the GoLive Interface

What is an interface? The interface is the collection of buttons, tools, and menus that you see and use in a software application such as Adobe GoLive 6. GoLive's specific type of interface is called a Graphic User Interface (GUI), meaning it is based on visuals, such as icons, rather than text. GoLive's interface makes use of a number of tabbed floating palettes with which users of other Adobe products will already be familiar.

Although GoLive is flexible enough to enable you to work in several different ways, many users choose it for its easy-to-use Layout mode. In Layout mode, you type onto the page, add images and multimedia, and then move things around the page until it looks the way you want it to. That's called WYSIWYG authoring (pronounced whizzy-wig), which stands for “What You See Is What You Get.” Meanwhile, with every move you make, GoLive writes the HTML behind the scenes for you. HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language, the set of instructions used by Web pages that tells a browser how to display the contents of the page.
