Questions & Comments

Just a question about the use of Dreamweaver. Will I be able to include 3rd party plugs like I can when using Adobe Muse. MuseThemes.com adds a bigger spectrum to the Muse program. I assume all these added things like pop ups and sliders can be build with Dreamweaver?

Hey Bill,
Yes, you can. But they are way harder to implement than Muse. Dreamweaver is a complete DIY builder, where as Muse is totally premade.

To get things like a slider or a menu going, there is some copy & pasting of code into the site. Then fiddling to make sure it works. Like when we impliment the Slice Nav example here. There are loads of 3rd party things to add to a website. Normally you're google words like "jqeury Slider". They aren't specific to Dreamweaver.

There are some plugins on this site specifically for Dreamweaver: https://exchange.adobe.com/addons

*I love musethemes.com.

Hi Dan
Is it necessary to put the viewport meta name in the header if building a responsive web site.
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">

I notice you didn't use this in your introduction to responsive web design.
regards Debbie

What about the <header> class. I would like to make some changes but can't find the <header> in css.

Administrator Tayla Coman - 1 year ago

He class is just <head>, not <header>, hope this helps

Why is it that you say in the beginning of the video (youtube; that's how I found this course) you can download all files for free on bringyourownlaptop.com, but now I have to subscribe and pay 12$ for those to be said free files?
Very confusing.

Video Transcription

Hi there, my name is Dan Scott. And in this video we're going to turn you from Web Zero to Web Hero, and look to build your very first Responsive Web Page using Dreamweaver.

Now you can follow along in this tutorial perfectly. You just need to download the exercise files. There's a link down in the description there. It's free to download, go and get that, pause the video, come back once you've got the files.

So the goal of this tutorial is to expose you to modern Web Design. We're going to look at terms like Responsive, HTML5, and CSS3. They sound fancy but they're actually quite easy once you understand them. We're also going to look at how Dreamweaver makes this super easy for us to do, but actually what I really want you to get from this video is to get to a point hopefully, at the end, where you're like "Actually, it's not as hard as I thought it was" and "I'm pretty excited about going off, learning more, and building my own site."

So that's my goal. Let's get into it now, and I'll start working.
