NOTE: this course uses Bootstrap 3. Dreamweaver has recently updated to Bootstrap version 4. You can change it back to 3 using the ‘New Document > Bootstrap > Preferences'. Please do this before starting the course.
Some versions of Dreamweaver will require you to download the specific Bootstrap version you want to use and link it within the site. You can download Bootstrap 3 here: http://getbootstrap.com/docs/3.3/
Okay so we’re going to create our first bootstrap document so all the other things we’ve done up until now have been little play around just to get used to things, now we’re going to build our full site. So first thing we need to do is, remember, create a site definition. We need to do that for every new site, even if you’re just playing around, make a new site for it, play around with that one but make a new site when you move it onto the next project or the next trial. So, we’re going to go to new site, we’re going to call this one ‘My BootStrap Website’ you can give it something else, remember that name can be anything you like. We’re going to pick a local file, so I’m going to put it on the desktop. I’m going to call this one ‘BootStrap Website’ click choose. The only other thing I’m going to do is, under advanced settings, I’m going to go to images, I’m going to create a folder in here called ‘images’ and click choose. Great, lets click save.
