Join Paul Trani for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Creating a First Website in Dreamweaver CC 2014.
If you're a Premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library, you have access to all the Exercise Files throughout this title. In fact, here they are on my desktop. If I open it up, you can see these various chapter folders. And each one usually contains a Begin and then a Final file, as well. So always reference whichever files you want and use them accordingly. But not only that you have this Assets folder and you'll be pulling from this folder a lot, as well.
And then there's also the Final site. So feel free to jump in here, change these graphics. Call them in your own and really just make it your own is your goal. But if you're a monthly member or an annual member of lynda.com, you don't have access to these Exercise Files for whatever reason. You can easily follow along from scratch with your own assets, which is really ultimately what you want to do anyway, is to create your own website. So let's jump right in and get started in creating our very first website in Dreamweaver CC the 2014 release.
Author Paul Trani begins with brief introductions to HTML and CSS. Then you'll learn how to create a basic webpage, add text and images, and style the content with CSS. Paul then shows how to add navigation and links between pages, integrate video and social media (such as a Twitter feed), and create a contact form. The course also covers making sure your layout is "flexible" (i.e., that it resizes to fit mobile devices), testing your site, and uploading it to the web.
