Editing a WordPress Theme in Adobe Dreamweaver CC
Editing a WordPress Theme in Adobe Dreamweaver CC is just an awesome thing to do. It is so wild to make changes and to see them happen live on your computer. Ok, enough of the happy stuff. The fact of the matter is that it is extremely rewarding, but the in the process of editing a WordPress theme in Dreamweaver is a train wreak nightmare from hell. So get ready for all of that and a bag of chips. Hold on to your seat and don’t blink an eye.
To get the ball rolling so that you can begin editing a WordPress Theme in Dreamweaver, you have to set up your local Mamp ( for the Mac ) or Wamp (for the pc), so that you can make this happen. A local server is just like you having your own GoDaddy, but it is on your own computer. That is all “local” means. The word itself just sound kind of yucky.
You may take a look at setting up a WordPress Multisite on your yucky, local server while you are at it. When you get hot and heavy with editing a WordPress theme in Dreamweaver, setting up a WordPress Multisite has great rewards for your work flow. In a nut shell, with a multisite, you can have one WordPress installation, and on that one installation have as many WordPress sites as you want, all with different themes living in their own worlds.
If you are used to using Adobe Dreamweaver CC to work with your own or many sites in the land of html, then defining a site is not big deal. But because of WordPress needing to run on a server, you need to click a couple of new buttons in the site definition, set up panel. It´s a good thing, but still no picnic.
You are almost ready to begin editing a WordPress theme in Dreamweaver, but you want to do things right from the very beginning. When working with WordPress, you want to get in the habit of setting up a Child Theme from the very beginning of your project.
