FW / Dreamweaver

Good Afternoon,

I was told by someone that I could “export” all the files of a site (that I have access to) to Dreamweaver to then tweak it to a wordpress theme

How do you transfer these files into DW?

PLease…

Thank you

Julie

You can think of Dreamweaver as a combination FTP client, text editor,
and limited WYSIWYG editor/preview interface. It reads and writes
HTML, and has no other document format available to it. This is its
strength and also its greatest weakness. If you have created a site in
Freeway, and published it to a server, or to a folder on your Mac, you
can import that site into Dreamweaver either by giving it the same FTP
credentials and folder name you used for the upload, or by navigating
to the local Site Folder on your drive and opening the site from
there. Once you do, you will be able to edit the HTML etc. directly.
Understand that any changes you make in this environment will not be
reflected in Freeway’s view of that same site, so be careful to work
on a copy of the site, and don’t expect any sort of round-trip between
the two environments. Think of it as evolutionary branches, as if homo
sapiens suddenly branched off into homo sapiens and some form of sea
slug. DW is the latter.

Julie - give this serious thought. To start using DW and WordPress is a recipe for disaster.

DW has a steep learning curve and to then get that to work with a WP theme - walk away and pick up experience with them both before tackling something that you may not be able to deliver on.

you are right… I found that out.

I did find a great program to design WP themes - it is not as awesome as FW but for what I need to do it works.
