Hour 15. Designing for WordPress and Content Management Systems

Hour 15. Designing for WordPress and Content Management Systems

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN IN THIS HOUR:

  • How to setup a CMS-based site to work with Dreamweaver

  • How to activate dynamically related files

  • How to view and edit dynamic sites within Dreamweaver

  • How to set up site-specific code hinting

One of the most exciting new features in Dreamweaver CS5 is ability to work conveniently to design sites built in several popular, free web content management systems (CMS) that use PHP and MySQL, such as Wordpress for blogging and Drupal and Joomla. Sites created with these systems are different than the pages we’ve looked at so far because they are generated by a server technology, PHP, from various elements and sources, including database content (typically stored in MySQL). The examples in this hour feature WordPress, a widely used, free blogging tool. Note that we won’t discuss the basics of making posts in a CMS, because it doesn’t require Dreamweaver; rather, we’ll focus on how to modify CMS page themes using Dreamweaver’s tools.
