Question about Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 for Mac

2 Answers

I'm working in dreamweaver cs5. i have 5 images (which i'm using as links) stretched across the top of my page. i want each of them to launch a different spry element in the middle of the page. ie) if you click the "calendar" link (image), a calendar pops up below it, without resetting the whole page. then, if you roll over the "blogs" link, several blog entries appear in the space where the calendar was. am i right in assuming that spry/ajax is made for this sort of thing? please give me step-by-step instructions on how to make that work. (i'm just learning spry, obviously, but i learn best by doing..)

Hi.
If i got this right ... all you want is a dropdown menu on the top of the web page, but with images instead of text. Right?

Is Dreamweaver MX 2004 bilingual? I want to write my website text in both English and Welsh often on the same page, I am unable to find the accents/symbols needed for Welsh words. ie the Welsh for "Dogs"...


Dreamweaver is just software to build a web page/site. If you want your web page/site to show Welsh characters, you have to code the characters. A list of HTML codes for different characters can be found here: http://www.ascii.cl/htmlcodes.htm Using the Split or Code views, you can type in the HTML code for any character and it will display the character on a web page.
Hope this helps!

Macromedia dreamweaver to crate menu bar


  1. Load your index.html page as before. That is, doubleclick the file in the Files pane in the right column.
  2. Locate your existing navigation menu, which at this time merely consists of a series of links to your home page, About Us page, Contact Us page and the Site Map. Select them and delete them. We will be completely replacing them in this chapter.
    1. Make sure that the blinking text cursor is currently in the side bar. If it is not, click somewhere in the side bar. Now click "Insert | Spry | Spry Menu Bar" from the menu. That is, click the "Insert" menu, then the "Spry" item on the menu that appears, and finally on "Spry Menu Bar" on the submenu that appears.
    2. A dialog box will appear asking you whether you want a horizontal menu bar or a vertical one. Since we are placing the menu bar in the left column, we want a vertical menu bar. Select the "Vertical" option and click OK.
    3. A default menu bar will be inserted into your side bar. If you look at the Properties pane at the bottom of your Dreamweaver window, you will see that the text and links for menu items are displayed there.
    4. Select "Item 1" by clicking on it, if it is not already selected. In the "Text" box, replace the words "Item 1" with "Home" (without the quotes). Replace the default "Link" text of "#" with "index.html" (without the quotes).
    5. By default Dreamweaver created a submenu for your menu. We don't need one, so we will need to delete it. Select "Item 1.1". Directly above "Item 1.1" are two buttons "+" and "-". Click the "-" item to delete Item 1.1. Do the same for "Item 1.2" and "Item 1.3".
    6. Now do the same with the other items, replacing the text with the appropriate words for your site, and the links with the actual page names. If there are submenus, delete them as you did for Item 1. For your convenience, the replacement text and links are reproduced below from chapter 3. Note that Item 3 has a three-level menu system. Delete all submenus (item 3.1.1, 3.1.2, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3) - we won't need them.
      • Text: About Us, Link: aboutus.html
      • Text: Contact Us, Link: feedback.html
      • Text: Site Map, Link: sitemap.html
    7. Click "File | Save". A dialog box will pop up telling you that certain files have been added to your site, and that these files will need to be uploaded. Click "OK".
    8. Now upload the page to your website using "Site | Put" and check the results in your browser. Hover your mouse over your menu buttons, and you will see that they change colour.
    Customizing the Spry Framework's Menu Bar Widget While adding the Spry Framework's navigation menu bar to your web page is a simple procedure under Dreamweaver, customizing it is, however, another cup of tea. There is no built-in method to do so under Dreamweaver's user interface. You will have to do it manually.
    The fastest way to do this is to do it via Dreamweaver's "Code" view.
    Dreamweaver has two basic ways you can work on your website. So far, you have been creating your site using the "Design" view. The "Design" view allows you to work on your web page using the What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get (WYSIWYG) editor - that is, as you create your web page, you basically see the page as a visitor would when they visit your website.
    The "Design" view hides the real code, the HTML and CSS code, that Dreamweaver generates for your website. This code, the "raw" code, if you will, is the actual content that is uploaded (published) to your website. When your visitor loads your web page, the browser takes the "raw" code and displays it according to the instructions given in the "raw" code.
    To customize the Spry Framework's menu bar widget, you will be using Dreamweaver's facility for viewing this "raw" code for your website. Even if you find the menu bar widget satisfactory at the moment, you should still take the following steps to familiarize yourself with Dreamweaver's "Code" view. You will be using the Code view in a future chapter to insert your feedback form code.
    To switch to the "Code" view, click "View | Code" from the menu. Instead of the web page that you are accustomed to viewing, you will now see the "raw" HTML code for that page. If you scroll up and down the page, you should be able to see your content amidst other characters. These other characters, things like "<p>" and the like, are the formatting code that tells the browser how it should render your page.
    Centering the Menu Bar Scroll to the top of the index.html file in "Code" view. Locate the text "</head>" (without the quotes) somewhere near the top of the file. Place your cursor just before "</head>" on the same line. Hit ENTER (or RETURN) to insert a blank line. When you do this, the entire line with "</head>" should move downwards, creating a new blank line. Move the cursor to the blank line.
    Now copy the text from the box below and paste it into the blank line you just created in Dreamweaver. To copy the text, select all the text in the box with your mouse, click the right mouse button (or if you use Mac OS X, hold down the Control key on the keyboard and click the mouse), and select Copy from the menu that appears. To paste it into Dreamweaver, switch to the Dreamweaver window. Make sure that your text cursor is in the correct location (in the blank line above the word "</head>"). Select "Edit | Paste" from the menu. <style type="text/css">
    ul.MenuBarVertical
    {
    margin: 0 auto ;
    width: 8em;
    }
    </style>

Dreamweaver 8 Navigation menus appearing under page text!!


Hi,

Thanks, I just uploaded it using ftp so you can see it:
http://www.egoproductions.co.uk/tempsioned/

If you click on weddings - there is more content and if you hover over 'styles' you see the drop down appearing under the text.

This was all created in dreamweaver 8. I can set the large picture to be a background in the table cell (instead of having the image as content of the cell), and then just have the text in the cell, that might work (not tried it yet, because I want to solve this rather than do a workaround that will restrict me with other things I want to do - I need to use frames for those other things)

Many thanks!

Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\USER\Application Data\Macromedia\dreamweaver mx 2004

Rename the Configuration Folder to “Configuration old”.

How to make up a design using the dreamweaver?


Macromedia Dreamweaver for the first time, or on a new site for the first time, you need to define the Web site so that Dreamweaver can work with it. This process includes naming the site, placing the local files on a directory on your hard drive, and showing Dreamweaver where those files will be published on the Web. Follow these easy instructions to define a new Web site for Dreamweaver .

First, you should go to the "Site" menu and choose "Manage Sites".
As you can see from the image below, this will open a dialog window. Choose "New Site" from the "New" button.

Transferring pages to a new site


If you have the FTP information for the site you should be able to log in with WSFTP or something along those lines and transfer the files you are interested in getting. If you will provide me with the website name, I may be able to get the files for you as well if you have any problems.
