USING SITE SAMPLES AS TEMPLATES FOR NEW SITES


Use a site sample as a template to base your website on. GoLive comes with a number of samples for a variety of categories, as shown in Figure 40.14. You can also create your own sample sites (formerly called site templates) by saving files into any subfolder under Adobe GoLive CS2/Settings/DocumentStore/Sites. If nothing else, the site samples can help you to understand how to set up certain features used by popular websites.

Figure 40.14. Select a site sample to base your new website on.


To create a site:

1.

Choose File, New to display the New dialog, and then click Site in the first column and any samples choice in the second column.

2.

After you select a site sample for copying, click the Next button and enter a site name for your new website, along with a path to where you want to save the files, as shown in Figure 40.15.

3.

Click Finish and your new site based on a site sample appears in the Files tab of the Site window, as shown in Figure 40.16.

4.

Double-click the home page (index.html) to open the home page so that you can modify it to your specifications, as shown in Figure 40.17.
