Home Forums Other Adobe Dreamweaver. Love it or Hate it ?!?!? Re: Adobe Dreamweaver. Love it or Hate it ?!?!?


Dreamweaver has some powerful file handling options that alot of code editors don’t get. For example, if you move a .html doc to a different directory within DW, it will automatically change the links throughout your entire site to point to that new location. Also you can make library items that allow you to do site-wide changes with a single edit. These things can be invaluable if your working with a 50 or more page site. I will note, the design view of dreamweaver, where supposedly you can click and drag stuff around to make websites without knowing code…. well thats completely SCi-Fi. U cant make anything good that way.

If your website is really big…
2 – Dreamweaver (absolutely!)
3 – Not Dreamweaver

If your website is NOT really big…
1 – Dreamweaver
4 – Not Dreamweaver
