    Source code in Dreamweaver

    Asked by Tony103 on August 31, 2015 at 12:57 PM

    Hi,

    I've created my basic form, but would like to make some changes to layout and styling.

    I've taken the source code to Dreamweaver, but all code shows as READ ONLY. so I can't make the small postional changes needed.

    Can you help.

    source layout read only

    I would just like to check if you have downloaded the full source code of your form as shown in the following guide: How to get the Full Source Code of your Form

    Once you do, you should move the files to your DW website folder and you should be able to make the modifications from there.

    Do let us know how it goes.

    I presume that you would prefer the option that you get with the "here" link (right under the orange border) instead since it has separate css and js files in the zip, but this option should give you the form's code that you can save in some page with the calls to specific resource (js and css) files.

    Can you please grab a screenshot of the code view of your DreamWeaver so that we can check it out as well?

    Thanks for response.

    I've never used Dreamweaver before, I use Muse for Websites.

    It's probably something I've done.

    I've just been watching the videos on using your inbuilt CSS Editor. I'm going to use that and will investigate  the Dreamweaver thing later.

    OK, thank you for letting us know.

    I presume that it is more or less the same thing (Muse and Dreamwaver) and in both - if you want to grab the source code, you should be able to do so.

    It is however usually recommended to just embed the form into the layout following the next steps:

    Now since you say that you will try to use Form Designer, I would recommend taking a look at the following (quick) video guides: Video Course: Form Designer Basics
