Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
In the quest to do great work on time and on budget, the same Dreamweaver challenges seem to keep tripping up developers. The authors of Dreamweaver MX Magic have identified a dozen of these challenges, and offered systematic solutions in the context of real-world projects. When tips, tricks, and step-by-step recipes are what you need, this book delivers them. When you need thoughtful background, that’s here, too.

What kind of problems does this book solve? For one, establishing an efficient workflow that incorporates both Dreamweaver MX and Macromedia Fireworks MX -- and more broadly, managing your projects as efficiently as possible. The authors’ approaches will save you tons of time in prototyping, development, even maintenance.

Need to password-protect part of your site, using a subscriber database? Get the benefits of templates without losing the flexibility you need? Add “crumb trails” to your site, to help all your Hansels and Gretels navigate their way back out of the forest? Build sites that are accessible to the physically challenged? Implement cascading style sheets quickly and efficiently? Next time someone says, “wouldn’t it be great if we had feature ‘X’,” look here first. Bill Camarda

Bill Camarda is a consultant, writer, and web/multimedia content developer. His 15 books include Special Edition Using Word 2000 and Upgrading & Fixing Networks For Dummies®, Second Edition.

From The Critics
This book/CD-ROM package, presented in an 11x8.5" format, provides 13 real-world projects that demonstrate how to speed up the web design process, add functionality to web pages, and allow a web site to communicate with a database using Dreamweaver MX. Each project contains step-by-step instructions, succinct explanations, screen capture illustration steps, and customization information. Readers are assumed to be familiar with Dreamweaver or another web authoring application. Buraglia is editor or coauthor of several books on computer software and is active in the Dreamweaver community. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

    Easy to follow instructions

    DREAMWEAVER MX MAGIC AUTHOR: Sean Nicholson, Brad Halstead, et al. PUBLISHER: New Riders REVIEWED BY: Barbara Rhoades BOOK REVIEW: The very first thing you notice when you open the books is the clean page layouts and clearly written instructions. It is laid out in step-by-step, numbered format that makes it very easy to follow. As you work through the various exercises, you will notice blocks of text set in a partially framed green box. These contain various notes, warnings and tips. Dreamweaver MX Magic has plenty of exercises to work through and have graphical views of the work so you can¿t go wrong on what you are suppose to be learning. A CD comes with the book and contains the following information: all the project files, trial versions of Dreamweaver MX, Fireworks MX and Coldfusion Server MX, as well as extensions, plug-ins and a list of web links where you can get help and other information. Ever wished you could change one thing that is in every page of your web? Project 2 and 3 will help you work in a template and explain what it does to help you design better. Or how about a search engine on your site so your customers can find that certain item they are looking for without having to look through all the pages of the site? Project 8 will teach you how to do it. Then there are layers and database-drive username and password to learn in Project 12 and 13. Dreamweaver MX Magic will provide you with a solid basic understanding of a few of the special features in this new Dreamweaver/Fireworks program. If these are the programs you design in, be sure to get a copy of this book. It will be well worth the price of the book.
