Exploring the Site Panel and the Site Window

You can select a site, open files, run reports, and perform maintenance on an entire site in the Site panel and the Site window. The Site panel is part of Dreamweaver MX for Window’s integrated interface. In Windows, the Site panel and the Assets panel are grouped together as the Files panel group, shown in Figure 4.10. The Site panel displays all the files in your site, making it easier to open files and manage your site.

Figure 4.10. The Site panel is grouped with the Assets panel. It displays all the files in your site.


Dreamweaver MX for the Mac has a floating panel interface. On the Mac, you view and launch files from the Site window, shown in Figure 4.11. Open the Site window by selecting the Site Files command from the Site menu. A separate window opens, displaying the remote site on the left side and the local site on the right. While working on the Mac, you’ll want to keep this window open for quick and easy access to all of your files.

Figure 4.11. The Site window displays the local and remote site by default. On the Mac, the Site window is a separate window.


To view the Site window in Dreamweaver MX for Windows, you can expand the Site panel by clicking the Expand/Collapse button, the button on the far right. This command doesn’t open another window, as on the Mac, but expands the Site panel. To return to the Document window, click the Expand/Collapse button in the expanded Site window. You’ll learn more about the various menu commands and buttons in the Site panel and the Site window in Chapter 16.

Power User Tip

There is a Site menu in the Document window, the Site panel, and the Site window. The Site menu in the Document window has fewer commands than the Site menu in the Site panel or the Site window.
