BlueMesa Dreamweaver template available for download

Comments are off

BlueMesa is posted on our free Dreamweaver template page and can be previewed or downloaded.  It is another table-free CSS layout with two CSS navigation locations. The template can be easily customized with the included Fireworks PNG file, and we also included a Photoshop PSD export as well. I recommend using Fireworks if you have it, as the PNG file includes all the slices pre-optimized and ready for export.

BlueMesa is based on the Sublime code, with differences in the header navigation and the overall graphic scheme.  As with Sublime, the code is nice and clean, and there are the usual pre-styled tags and sidebar content boxes.

CSS Designs – Complete CSS website templates

Comments are off

Commercial website templates are kind of a mixed bag of function and usability. Some are good and some are just plain terrible. CSS Designs are a new line of CSS website templates from WebAssist that are CSS-based and built for cross-browser compatility and easy customization.

CSS Designs are standard HTML CSS templates that include 12 different color schemes and also include both the Fireworks and Photoshop source files so you can easily customize the template graphics. The coolest part about them is the ability to integrate the templates with CSS Sculptor for Dreamweaver and Expression Web. If you have CSS Sculptor, you can very easily tweak the templates to your liking using Sculptor’s easy-to-use interface. If you don’t have Sculptor, you can use the templates with any HTML authoring software, even Notepad if that’s your cup of tea. Continue reading…

ThemeDreamer – Create WordPress themes in Dreamweaver

3 Comments

Our newest extension offering is ThemeDreamer from Virtuosoft.  We’ve been working with ThemeDreamer for several months and have been anxiously awaiting it’s release.  It’s still in beta, but you can download a trial which will deactivate upon the next release or buy ThemeDreamer at half of the final release price.

If you have ever tried designing a WordPress theme in Dreamweaver, you know it’s not very easy and the workflow is rather repetitive. Even with a local WordPress installation, you are continually editing, saving, previewing, re-editing, etc. ThemeDreamer takes a lot of the hassle out of creating WordPress themes by integrating with Dreamweaver’s design view. It takes the assortment of WordPress PHP files such as index.php, header.php, sidebar.php, footer.php, etc. and combines them to allow WYSIWYG editing in design view. Continue reading…

OpenSpaces – a new free Dreamweaver template

3 Comments

We just wrapped up the design of OpenSpaces, a new free template for Dreamweaver. It’s really a pretty cool template that is easy to customize the appearance of. There are actually five different templates included with OpenSpaces, with three variations with a header graphic and two without the header image.

Navigation is simple CSS navigation, so no drop-down menus in this template. We styled a left sidebar and a right sidebar and a cool header area where you can include any information, even an AdSense leaderboard ad if you style the enclosing div a little wider.

We also included two types of boxes to go on the full-width home page template, a three box layout and a two box layout. Each can be easily modified via the included Fireworks source file, simply by changing the colors and re-exporting the slices that are already optimized in the file. We included similar boxes in our Fruit Company template and I think people liked them as they were very functional and break up the content well.

Check out OpenSpaces on our free Dreamweaver templates page, and we also added an option for licensing our templates without the link back to our site. We’re probably too cheap on the prices, but we don’t do it for the money anyway.

Learn to build database-driven websites in Dreamweaver and Expression Web

Comments are off

Eight years ago, after creating my first database powered website, I remember thinking man, this is cool stuff! Today, many dynamic PHP and ASP Dreamweaver sites later, I still have the same giggly, power-hungry feeling when I start coding the pages to display the database content. There is so much you can do with a simple database and a few lines of code, that static websites should be a thing of the past.

There is a really affordable set of database-driven website tutorials available from WebAssist that give you the foundation you need to start cranking out some really decent websites. 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.

Web 2.1 – another free Dreamweaver template

Comments are off

Web 2.1 is a really sweet template for those of you who like the web 2.0 look. Lots of bright colors glassy icons and gradiant effects in this free Dreamweaver template. We actually did two versions of the navigation, and you can download whichever version you prefer. The CSS version was created with CSS Menu Writer and there is also a DHTML menu courtesy of AllWebMenus Pro 5. In order to customize the DHTML menu, you will probably want to pick up a copy of AllWebMenus from Likno Software.

As with all our free templates, we included the Adobe Fireworks source file so you can easily customize the template to suit your needs. The file is all pre-sliced and optimized, so all you need to do is change colors and export the slices into the images directory.  We also included a bunch of vector web 2.0 icons, buttons, balls, and glassy dudes.  They’re at least fun to play with even though they might not fit your site needs.

Check out Web 2.1 on our free templates page.  You can preview both the CSS and the DHTML versions and download whichever you prefer.  The DHTML version is pretty slick, but the code is really clean (and SEO optimized) in the CSS version.

We also just introduced template licensing for all our templates. We kept getting requests on “how much does it cost to remove the link”, so we just posted some PayPal buttons that you can buy one, two or all the templates. It’s kind of a no-brainer since you can buy all our current and future templates for only 50 bucks.  We create our templates to help people create good websites in less time, and it does take some time to put them together, so if you feel like donating to our cause, please license a template or two or all…
