Just released on Lynda.com Creating Your First Web Site with Dreamweaver CS6!
In this title I show how to create a web site step by step with Adobe Dreamweaver CS6, one of the industry’s leading web authoring tools. But not just any web site. A responsive HTML5 web site that works across multiple browsers and devices, complete with rich imagery and text, a robust portfolio, video content, and even a contact form. This course covers how to use web standards such as HTML5 for structure and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to control colors, fonts, navigation, and more. The course also demonstrates how to test across multiple browsers and devices and upload your new site to the web. Topics Include:

  • Understanding basic web principles
  • Adding content to a web page
  • Linking to web sites and email addresses
  • Styling content with CSS
  • Creating a layout that fits multiple browsers and devices
  • Building an HTML5 layout
  • Inserting images and video
  • Adding a menu bar
  • Creating a contact form
  • Integrating a Twitter feed
  • Uploading and testing a web site

    Hi Paul,
    I have just finished looking at your “Creating Your First Web Site with Dreamweaver CS6″ and I have to say that I found it really inspiring.
    I was wondering if there was any chance for you to send me a copy of your formmail.php form as I am not a premium subscriber…it would help me a great deal…:)
    Thank you in any case and keep up your amazing work!!!
    Max

    I am really interested in seeing a tutorial for how you used photoshop in producing your backgrounds and especially your logo that is translucent. The DW videos are a great help, as i used iweb to create my first site, w/ css help from iweb SEO tool. Had I come across your video first, I would have used CS6 instead.

      That is a popular request. The background just takes Photoshop work, starting with some stock photos on http://www.istockphoto.com. The translucent logo was created in PS with transparency and exported as a png-24 file by going to File > Export for Web. I hope that helps!

    So, I followed all the steps for a contact form and have created the three fields (name, email and message) and followed all the as3 code, but seriously, for the life of me…I can’t get the PHP to work. I’ve searched it out so much and there are hundreds of code variations out there. I don’t know what to do. Any help???

    I am instituting the use of templates for my 500+ pages. Is there a way to make the spry menu bar changes carry over to all pages as I edit index.html? Also, I would like to make my nav bar and title( your H1) stay at the top while everything below scrolls up and disappears under the title. How do I make this happen? thanks

    You can have a spry menu as part of a Dreamweaver Template (.dwt). If all pages are based on that template you just have to update that once and it will work across all.

    And if you want the h1 to always be fixed at the top you can set the position to fixed. Check out this example: http://jsfiddle.net/kFBuD/91/

    I am having difficulty writing a php for my customer survey. Can you help me straighten this out, survey is at http://www.jrross.com/survey. I can email you my php code that I have, but I only can get the name to be emailed to me. Let me know if you can help. I can email you the files

      James, I don’t do any personal development like this. In fact, I sometimes outsource my stuff since I don’t have time. I’m sorry. To get the other fields to work I’d just duplicate everything you did to get the email to work. You have to do it exactly of course, except for the name. And if you do need to find someone you can try freelancer.com. I’ve used people from there before without issue, but it depends on who you get. Thanks James and sorry!
