OldTime Lounge Lizard looking for tutorial

Not a lot of points to offer but I'm looking for a beginner's tutorial for Dreamweaver.
I have kinda played with web publishing using MS Pub.  [yeah...I know] and now have access to Dw 8

Quick & dirty links or advice???


TIA

Congrats StoneG! A small step for coders, a great leap for.. ehrm..

This is where i started years ago:
http://www.webmonkey.com/authoring/tools/tutorials/tutorial1.html

After that i went:
http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=tutorial+dreamweaver&sm=Yahoo%21+Search&fr=FP-tab-web-t&toggle=1&cop=&ei=UTF-8

And then: http://www.macromedia.com/devnet/

But.. What are you going to use it for? If its just design, awright.. if its anything more i would say go:
Dot net matrix: http://www.asp.net/Default.aspx?tabindex=0&tabid=1
Or Visual Web developer Express: http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/vwd/default.aspx

Both free!!!!! And lots`n lots of resources!!!

Hey Mattis!

<What are you going to use it for? If its just design...<
Yeah, I'm primarily a photo-er who wants wysiwyg combined with enough knowledege to have a grasp of the problems that surface.
      ...at least as a beginner.

I have tried my hand at programming many moons ago...I am SO much better at visuals & composition. ;-)

I'm tempted to take your links & run 'cause  I figure this is all I can use right now, but I'll leave this open 'till sometime Friday... just as it was done back in the day when I was  ¨ƒô».  
:-))


thunx, man!

Well, then i guess DW is great for your use!
Another tip.. Get the Dummies books on DW, they are excellent, and i still use the old ones for reference..

Hi StoneG,

Let me add a vote for Macromedia devnet.  Not only are there good articles on DW, but there are a ton of flash-based demos and videos that walk you through some of the more common but less intuitive tasks in the software (setting up sites, setting up a testing server, creating recordsets, etc).
