Comments are off

Whether you’re building a client site, an affiliate marketing niche website or just have a need for some great niche header images, check out our new NicheBuilder template system.

NicheBuilder is an extremely flexible template that has a ton of features, CSS and images built-in so you can quickly modify and upload your site. Similar to some of our other Dreamweaver templates, it’s built upon the 960 grid system and incorporates a lot of jQuery functionality out of the box.

Easily choose from a variety of template layouts, controlling sidebar position and size, or even remove your sidebars entirely on specific pages.  The navigation uses the popular Superfish jQuery script and is easily configurable as a Dreamweaver library asset.  So now you can easily update your navigation site-wide when using multiple templates on your site.

The Database Starter Kits are available in PHP, ASP and .NET formats (.NET is currently available for Expression Web only) and they are only about ten bucks each. What you get with the starter kits is a complete interactive tutorial series that teaches the fundamentals of database website design, three complete databases (MySQL for PHP and Access for ASP and .NET) and a host of information that will get you started building your own dynamic websites.

I also included some video from Adobe TV demonstrating some of the really cool new features of Dreamweaver CS4.
