Extending Dreamweaver by Using Third-Party Extensions

You can easily install third-party extensions to Dreamweaver by selecting Commands, Manage Extensions. This command launches the Macromedia Extension Manager, which enables you to automatically install and uninstall extensions that have been packaged in a standard Macromedia extensions format. Many extensions are available to extend Dreamweaver's functionality; check out the Macromedia Dreamweaver Exchange at www.macromedia.com/exchange.

Extensions can be commands, objects, suites, or behaviors. The Macromedia Exchange, shown in Figure 22.12, lists categories of extensions. You can also search for a certain type of extension at this site. When you select an extension from the list, you'll see a description of what it does and also a link to download the extension. Many extensions are free, but some of the extension developers charge a minor price for their work. Sometimes you can try the extension for a limited amount of time for free. Most of the extensions that carry a charge are well worth the money spent because they usually provide functionality you could not create, they speed up your development enormously, and they often have support documentation available.
