Hey guys

I have just got myself a copy of dreamweaver4, fireworks and flash 5 also dreamweaver ultradev4?, i really want to use these to create my web site, as at the moment i only use frontpage but i think dreamweaver would be much better, the only problem is i have no idea on how to use it. i have made my home page with one frame on the left of the page, in this frame i want to put all my links but i want to make them interactive so basically when you hover over them with your mouse something will happen to the button can i do this in dreamweaver or do i need to use one of the other macromedia software, as you can see i am a real beginner with dreamweaver and i have no idea about Html either.

Can you guy help in anyway?


yout probably gonna see alot more of me

oops just re-read your post!! And you said you don't know much bout HTML!

It might be worth getting a book about DreamWeaver 4, or HTML if you want to learn it!

But DW isn't too hard to learn really. You can get backgrounds by going to MODIFY>PAGE PROPETIES and sorting most things from there. IMAGES, INSERT>IMAGES, and use a table layout to make space for menus text etc.!

Depends. First you need a server. There are a lot of free ones but they may put ads on. Freeola are good.

Secondly, you need an FTP program. Either use DW's built in or go to and pick up a free one. That's it!

Hi Guys.

I have Dreamweaver 3 and am using it in college, so I got it at home and was wondering how can I put my website I have designed on the web and will it cost me anything to do so.

Cheers for any help.

Ahem. It would of course be an external CSS, saving you from lots of code in the HTML page?

I've got a script that sorts out the rollovers and preloads the images if you are interested. It is extremely easy to use.

On another note... if you use a JavaScript pre-load images command, the rollovers will be cached from the initial load preventing repetative downloads. Download once, use many.

Great things have been produced on Photoshop and Quark, both almost twice the price of Fireworks!! It's not the tools that produce the results but the user!!

I assume you mean creating an effect which changes the state of the text giving the impression of a rollover? If so, this is simple CSS.



a:hover {
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 9pt;
font-style: normal;
font-weight: normal;
color: #9999FF;
background-color: #000033;
text-decoration: none;
text-align: left

You can change any of the variables to create a roll over effect ie:

font-weight: bold;
text-decoration: underline;

This will make the text switch to Bold underlined when the mouse goes over it.

Much quicker that producing text bases image rollovers.
