About Dreamweaver Templates
by Brandon Devnich
What is Adobe Dreamweaver?
Dreamweaver is an industry leading web editor that has long been the "professionals" choice in web editor programs since being originally developed by Macromedia before it was purchased by Adobe Systems in 2005.
The latest version of Dreamweaver is called Dreamweaver Creative Cloud (CC) 2017. Dreamweaver CC works much like Dreamweaver CS, except that it is subscription based. You can now get Dreamweaver at a smaller upfront cost than when you purchased Dreamweaver CS upfront. This means that if you are a business, it's easier in the short term to get the very latest web editor from Adobe, and you do not have to worry about amortizing the software over multiple years.
What is a Dynamic Web Template (DWT) for Dreamweaver?
DWT stands for Dynamic Web Template. DWTs are a way of having a master web template layout with which pages in your site are attached to. If you change the master layout, all of the pages that are attached to that template are updated with that change.
The DWT also limits the ability to alter regions of your page which are marked as "un-editable", so that you can work on your pages without the worry of "nudging" something off track in the master layout. The capabilities provided with the DWT are highly recommended for anyone who has 10+ pages in their site.
What are Dreamweaver Web Templates?
Dreamweaver Web Templates are pre-built websites that are editable using Adobe Dreamweaver. Designed using Dreamweaver, our Dreamweaver Templates are fully validated for XHML/HTML5 and CSS, and use Dreamweaver specific DWT and Library technology.
What is included with an i3dTHEMES Dreamweaver Template?
When you purchase a website template from i3dTHEMES, you get an immediately downloadable package of files which includes a ready-to-go website.
All you need to do is change the content, maybe some of the pictures, perhaps rename some of the pages. Then all you have to do is publish it up to the web. Included with each template is a access to a set of written and video tutorials to walk you through the process of updating the website.
We also have a support system which allows you to initiate a support ticket in the the event that you cannot find the help material you need within our system.
What versions of Dreamweaver will with i3dTHEMES Dreamweaver templates?
The Dreamweaver templates from i3dTHEMES will work in the following editors:
- Dreamweaver CC 2017
- Dreamweaver CS6
- Dreamweaver CS5
- Dreamweaver CS4
- Dreamweaver CS3
The newer the editor, the better the editing experience you will have. Many of our newer templates can be edited in the older Dreamweaver versions, however the design experience may not be as accurate as the older versions of Dreamweaver will not have support for the newest web coding practices.
