Site Definitions

Site definitions are no longer required for the purpose of testing and uploading files, (as of Dreamweaver MX 2004), however nearly all site operations depend on having a site defined. This is especially important for ensuring that paths to images and other files are created and maintained properly. Template and library items depend on knowing which files are located in your site so that updates to templates can propagate to dependent files. Communication with remote and testing servers requires that a site be defined so that you are able to get and put files, as well as synchronize files and use the Check in/Check out system. Perhaps most important, if you don't define a site, Dreamweaver can't communicate with the database, can't create or use record sets, and won't allow the use of the Server Behaviors panel and other operations.

Some of the Dreamweaver functionality that is covered in parts of this book requires that the files being worked with belong to a defined site. For this reason, you will need to create a site for Orange Whip Studio.
