DreamWeaver is a useful software and code editing application that you can use to edit and manage web pages without any expert knowledge in coding. DreamWeaver can also be used to make your own blog. You'll have the flexibility to customise the look of your blog or edit the stylesheet, style.css, using a basic template or theme from an open source blogging platform such as WordPress, which requires some basic knowledge in web standards following XHTML, CSS and PHP.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Choose a WordPress blog theme that you like before you build a blog on DreamWeaver. Download and unzip your WordPress theme on your computer and upload it in a new directory folder in your web host server using an FTP software such as FileZilla.

  2. 2

    Locate the style.css in your new theme directory folder and copy the code. Open a new HTML document file in Dreamweaver and make sure you are in the code view window. Paste the code you copied and select Design View window. It will be the preview of your blog.

  3. 3

    Modify colours, font, header, and background of style.css through Dreamweaver. Copy the source and paste into the style.css from the hosting server.

  4. 4

    Log in your Wordpress dashboard and write, then publish your first post. You can click View Site on the upper left menu to view your blog.
