For document title, input index. This will get you on the following screen. This is hat we mentioned in the beginning: a live view of what your site looks like blank, at the moment and the code behind it.
You will also notice that Dreamweaver has automatically created some basic HTML markup that you can build on. Create a Header To insert an element into the page, you first need to choose its location. After that, you need to go to the Insert tab in the upper right corner. This gives you a list of common HTML and site elements that you can add to your page.
Scroll down until you can see Header as an option. A simple click inserts it into the page. You also see it appear inside the HTML document. Simple, right? Now you will change the text inside the header and also turn it into a heading. After that, go back to Insert, click on the arrow next to Heading and choose H1. For more information on heading tags, read this article. After that, you can also type in a title for your page.
In your real website, you would choose something descriptive with keywords and not just Welcome to My Test Website as in the example.
Alright, you have just created a page header! It allows you to define colours, dimensions of elements, font types and sizes and a hell lot more. We want to use the markup to spruce up our page title and also learn how to change CSS in Dreamweaver. The first step is to give your new header a CSS class or id.
During that process, Dreamweaver will also prompt you to create a style sheet file. Go to the DOM menu in the lower right part of the screen that lists your entire site structure. Make sure your header is selected. In the live view, you will now see it marked in blue with a little label and a plus sign at the bottom.
Click the plus sign and type in header in the field that open. The hashtag means you are assigning an id as opposed to a class. Press enter. Then type style. When you now select Ok, a new file will appear at the top of your live view. You can view and edit it from there. Awesome possum! For that, you first need to create a new CSS selector. A selector is the name of an element on our page that you can assign properties to, e.
Mark your H1 heading in the DOM view on the lower right like you did with the header before. Then, above that, choose CSS Designer. To create a CSS selector, click on the line where it says Selectors and then click on the plus symbol.
This should automatically propose a selector to you named header h1. Hit enter to create it. Quick note: for all those new to CSS, this selector means that you are targeting the element named h1 inside the element called header. That way, whatever you input as CSS is only applied to the written text only and not the header element overall. Change the Headline Font Now that you have a selector, you can assign properties to it.
If you know your way around CSS, you can simply type markup into style. For the less experienced users, Dreamweaver also makes it really easy. When you do, it will unlock a lot of additional options. With the new buttons, you can choose many CSS properties from the areas of layout, text, border and background. To change the font type, click on the Text option at the top alternatively, scroll down.
In the upcoming options, hover over font-family and click on default font.
This will give you a number of options for common fonts including their fallbacks in case the user browser is unable to show the primary font.
Either search for a font by name or use the many filter options on the left to narrow down your choices until you find something. A click on any of the typefaces marks it for inclusion in Dreamweaver.
Once you have done so, you can either use them directly or go to Custom Font Stacks to define your own fallback fonts. For now, simply hit Done and then click on default fonts again.
If you click on your style. For that, you can also use another feature called Quick Edit.
To use it, go to the code view and right click the part you want to edit. Here, choose Quick Edit at the top. This will open the CSS associated with this element below it. Now you can input additional properties without having to search the entire style sheet file which can be very long.
In order to centre the text and make it larger, add the following code to it. When you are done, it will look like this: Note that the text has already changed in the live view.
Now, press Esc to leave quick edit and head over to the style sheet. You will find that the new CSS has been added in the appropriate place. Pretty cool, right?
