 The logic of web site creation
• A website is in fact a folder that sits on a
  web server. That folder is your remote
  folder; it holds your remote site.
• But before you put something on the
  web, you create it and save it on your
  own machine, or -in this case- in your
  own network folder. That folder is your
  local folder, it holds your local site.
    Creating your local folder
• Go to your bsp-nas folder (click on the
  "my computer" icon, and then on the
  bsp-nas server.
• In that folder, create a new folder for
  your local site. Name the folder.
• All that you create for your website will
  go in there.
   Think ahead and organize
• You may want (eventually) to create
  more than just material for this course.
• So, open the folder you just created and
  create a new folder within it. Name that
  folder (for example, name it EdTech)

• The main file in each folder should be named
• We will now put a blank index file in both
• Go to Dreamweaver and save the blank page
  that opened in your main local site folder.
  Name the page "index"
• Then do a "save as" and save that same
  blank page in the subfolder you have created
  for the course.
   Create your site: local info

  your main site folder on bsp-nas

  after that, click on "open site" in
• To connect your site to the remote site,
  click on the "light switch" just to the right
  of the pulldown menu. Turn the "light
  switch" off when you are not uploading
  or downloading.

  index page to open it up.
