Even though Dreamweaver will let you start building pages without setting up a site first, the results would be nothing short of disastrous. In this chapter, we’ll look at Dreamweaver’s basic site settings and also take a trip through other time-saving features such as cloaking, Design Notes, and Check In/Check Out. With that down, we’ll explore how to manage and edit multiple sites and see how the Files panel makes life much easier for file transfer. This chapter also has some extra bits thrown in—about using an external FTP client, choosing a web hosting company, and more. So smash a bottle of champagne on your desk; we’re about to set sail with Dreamweaver!
