Video: Using the exercise files

If you're a Premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. Exercise files for this title are arranged by chapter and are located in folders that are named based on the movie number they represent. Since each exercise is self-contained, you'll want to work with these folders individually. You'll notice that I have my exercise files copied to the desktop. I recommend locating them there because they are easy to find and then they're easy to clean up when you're done with the title. Prior to each exercise, I recommend redefining your local Dreamweaver site using the new exercise folder as your root folder.

Using the exercise files

If you're a Premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. Exercise files for this title are arranged by chapter and are located in folders that are named based on the movie number they represent. Since each exercise is self-contained, you'll want to work with these folders individually. You'll notice that I have my exercise files copied to the desktop. I recommend locating them there because they are easy to find and then they're easy to clean up when you're done with the title. Prior to each exercise, I recommend redefining your local Dreamweaver site using the new exercise folder as your root folder.

To help you with this process, I am going to demonstrate it for you. So here we are in Dreamweaver, and let's say we're about to work on our first exercise. The first thing I am going to do is go ahead and define a site. So I am just going to right up to Site and choose New Site. And I am just going to go ahead and name this Dreamweaver 'DW New Features'. Now the first thing I want to do is find which exercise I am working on and then identify that folder as the local site folder. So I am going to browse out, go to my Desktop, and find my exercise files. If you choose not to put your exercise files on the desktop, just remember where they are so you can easily locate them.

So I am going to go ahead and open up my exercise files, and I'll go into Chapter_01 and I'll find the first exercise, 01_01. I'll go ahead and double-click that, Select, or Choose if you're on a Mac, and then save that site definition. Now I have a series of exercise files in my Files panel that I can begin to work with. Now the next exercise, I don't need to define an entirely new site; all I have to do is redefine this one. So if I go right over to my Files panel, I can just go ahead and double-click on the site name; that'll bring up my Site Setup dialog box. And I'll just browse out this time instead of 01, I'll go ahead and find the next exercise file, which in this case would be 02_01.

Hit Save and it'll go ahead and re-cache that and give you an entirely new set of exercise files. So when you're done with the lesson, there's no need to go ahead and create a new site. All you have to do is redefine your existing site and point it to the appropriate exercise folder. And if you're a Monthly or Annual subscriber to lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can still follow along using your own files if you would like.
