Chapter 5. Getting Started With Dreamwea... > Exploring the Dreamweaver Interface

Exploring the Dreamweaver Interface

Before you dive right into Dreamweaver and start making pages, you'll probably want to get acquainted with the interface. The following section gives you the quick rundown of the key features and a little about how they work. After you get familiar with Dreamweaver's default set of features, you can look for additional features to download at the Adobe Exchange Center at www.adobe.com/exchange.

The first time you launch Dreamweaver, you see the Start page (more about that later). The other thing that happens the very first time you launch Dreamweaver is that you'll be asked to set up a Web site. A dialog box opens, giving you Manage Sites and Cancel options. What Dreamweaver is trying to do is to index and keep track of the files that will make up your Web site. This is important. Dreamweaver helps you with site maintenance (uploading, synchronizing versions, checking links, and so on) if you set it up properly. More on that later in this chapter. You can work in Dreamweaver without creating a site; just be aware that Dreamweaver will not be able to help you keep track of the files and their relation to each other. Either way, you'll need to deal with Dreamweaver's request to set up a site. To set up a Web site, click Manage Sites. To skip this step and begin working with Dreamweaver, click Cancel.
