Can I create a site in Dreamweaver, and afterwards install a CMS (I'm thinking Joomla) so that others can edit the back end of the site?

Thanks

Laura

I understand that DW CS5 comes with built in Joomla support.

Two different animals. You can have separate sections but you'll need to turn your static pages into templates that get their content from the CMS if you want their edits to show up on what you've already built.

Hi,
You can create site by using joomla it is the best idea for developing content contained site by using dreamweaver you can develop and you need to upload your files to the server by using FTP in dreamweaver you can see the effect in local but not live.Today and for ever content is the king so try to put the fresh content.

the normal way of using Joomla would be to upload and install the Joomla core first, then use Dreamweaver to create a template (or templates) that get applied to the dynamic content pages. then load content via the CMS.

creating a static site first, including content, and then converting it to run on CMS would be a waste of time IMHO... plus, I'm not even sure how you could do that

You can create the design in DW, then use that as a 'template' to skin the CMS with your design. But the site would be built in the cms not in DW.

Most cms systems have a means of creating different layouts for different page types. You create the html/css for the design and then add the appropriate cms code to generate the content and navigation. Then you would use the cms system to populate the site and build out the pages.

It might be easier to install the cms first, choose a design or theme (lots of choices) then add some content and tweak the design/theme rather than recreating the wheel.
