Making a new Site in Dreamweaver - Brianna Marchand

In order to have a successful website, it is important that you keep you files organized. 

When you open a new site, you want to make sure that your local root folder has all of the files that you need.  You can access your root folder by going to Site and then clicking "New Site" (see below).

Once you click "new site" you will be directed to the following screen:

While in the Advanced Settings, only change the Local Info (in the left navigation area, highlighted blue).  You'll name your site whatever is appropriate and then click on the folder to the right of the Local Root Folder (under the Site Name area).  This will allow you to browse to the folder where your site files are located.  This will be the location for all of the files in your site.  Please note: you can add images later, but if you move images from here, your page may not work appropriately because the coding will be broken if it is updated throughout Dreamweaver.
