Lesson 17: Managing your Website: Reports, Optimization, and Maintenance
When it’s time to release your website to the world, you’ll want to take some final steps to make sure your site works and looks its best. Dreamweaver has a powerful set of reports, link checkers, and problem-solving tools to locate and fix any potential issues before final upload. When you’re ready, the built-in FTP and synchronization features of the Files panel will get you up-and-running.
