Practical Guide to Building a Website from Scratch
on May 10, 2013
Building a website is a daunting task, but this book takes you from the basics up to the powerful advanced features of Dreamweaver CS6. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand the intricacies of web-building to create their own website from scratch. I was a complete novice but now I have enough working knowledge to finish my first website. This book is thorough and written in a very comprehensible manner. There's a tutorial where you build a website for a fictitious Café and learn how to use Dreamweaver's built-in tools. At first sight, it's a little overwhelming (nearly 1,000 pages of hefty reading) but it's easy to digest if you're motivated to build a website from scratch. I had one issue with this manual. Since I was a true "beginner" in web design, I did not know any of the codes used by webmasters and I couldn't find a "listing" of the codes in the Index. The codes are, however, scattered throughout the book. Also, since I was not familiar with "web-related" terminology, I had trouble finding answers to certain problems encountered on my website. Overall, I believe this truly is the Manual that should have been included in Adobe's Dreamweaver CS6.
