USER REVIEWS

A complex web design application tool that is suitable for novices

By Isay Almenanza

On Wednesday, May 14, 2014

At first glance, this web design program is very technical and the novice users might think that it is only for web developers use. But as I go along experimenting, this very technical interface gave me a benefit on quick familiarity on the design portions of this application as a newbie user.

One great feature of this program is a new CSS tools. It includes simplified selectors and starter code for menus. This CSS helped me to create static web pages and dynamic websites.

Another cool feature this software app is the support for Worpress, Joomla and Drupal which are the well known open source content management systems.

Last improvement is the Live View Mode, which provides a preview of the site I rendered. This web design made my life easy by having Split View and Live Code to immediately inspect and debug the page.

In essence, this proprietary software tool will be maximized by Web Designers and Professional Web Developers and will surely give a good motivation for novice users.

Pros

  • It comes with a built-in CSS and Html editor
  • Site setup is very easy

Cons

  • No more accessibility validator and Photo gallery maker

Adobe Dreamweaver CS5: simplification and help for the new users.

By Pablo Conde Ferrer

On Friday, November 27, 2015

First time users encountered an improved and simplified assistants, to save confusion. In addition, instructions on how to efficiently use the default layout of a web page for someone without experience have included a constant help. I also found something really useful is that we can navigate the HTML and PHP using the same links page, and can filter files by format to focus on the construction of PHP or CSS layout.

Something that greatly appreciate the DTP is the new mode called Inspect Mode, If we add the possibility of seeing how the HTML code automatically changes depending on the Javascript event we are running live in the rendered web page, Dreamweaver win many points comfort against its competitors. And for those who like to observe the code of other websites to learn (not to borrow code, hopefully), Dreamweaver is now able to surf the Internet and see live changes in the source code of any page. Dreamweaver CSS5 has full support for Subversion, which can seamlessly manage the development of our websites using the version control system SVN

Pros

  • The program starts quickly and has a light and fast performance
  • Improved and streamlined assistants to novice users

Cons

  • Not a single improvement over databases
