How Do I Use A Free Template?

  s99Raj 17:23 18 Jun 2007

I've downloaded a free web page template from one of the many sites available for that, and would like to load it into Dreamweaver 8 and then edit it.

Does anyone know how to do that? I just can't seem to figure it out.

In Dreamweaver go to Site, New Site on the top menu and click the Advanced tab. With 'Local Info' highlighted, give the site an appropriate name, then in 'Local root folder' browse to the folder where you unzipped the template files which should have a file called index.html and Dreamweawer will create the site and load it. You don't need to do anything with 'Remote Info' until you are ready to upload the site.
