    View and interact with live sites inside of Dreamweaver. by Geoff Blake

  2. Greg Baker says:

    Live View lets you view and interact with a layout or page design much like if DreamWeaver was a normal web browser. Making it much easier to see your design changes on a layout as you make it. The video is by Geoff Blake

  3. The Live View tutorial is by Geoff Blake.

    Essentially, Live View is a way of displaying pages in Dreamweaver itself (using WebKit rendering). Although needed for a long time, Live View was introduced in CS4 and allows for interactivity such as clicking links, rollovers, and menus. CS5 introduced the Browser toolbar, which contains back and forward links and a URL bar — and appears to have been designed by MS in the mid-90s.

    Personally, I haven’t had much lucking using it with PHP as Geoff did, but maybe my MAMP install is bad.

  4. Shawn Lance says:

    Live View helps designers to view and interact with web pages from within Dreamweaver. All aspects of the page including mouse overs, links to internal and external site, and forums appear as they would if displayed via any standard web browser. Geoff Blake uses Live View and Live Code to work on his blog. Live view’s toolbar can be tuned on and off via View> Toolbars> Browser View. For learning, you can actually go to any website on the net and view the design and code in Dreamweaver to see how the site uses code to make the page design.

    Great episode, Thanks!

    Author of the tutorial is Geoff Blake.
    CS5’s new Live View Navigator enables you to view and interact with live web pages from within Dreamweaver. Also a great learning tool for viewing how any live site uses code, etc. in its design. (Pick me! Pick me!)
