Chapter 28. Customizing and Extending Dr... > The World of Third-Party Extensions

The World of Third-Party Extensions

If you want to move beyond customizing Dreamweaver into extending its functionality, you’re ready for some new extensions. If you want to take advantage of the programming prowess of others without having to write extensions yourself, you’re ready for the Macromedia Exchange for Dreamweaver and the Extension Manager.

Finding Extensions: The Macromedia Exchange

The Macromedia Exchange for Dreamweaver is a huge storehouse of extensions that Macromedia has collected and put on the Web for all to use. Although Macromedia wrote some of these extensions, the majority were written by independent developers who created the extensions to help themselves and who have agreed to share them with the Dreamweaver community. These extensions have been packaged in a common format (MXP) and put on the Exchange for everyone to use. Most are free, but a few are commercially produced and might have a small cost.
