Continuing down the road of forgotten or overlooked features in Dreamweaver, have you ever gone to save a file, and due to the fact that you’d been navigating around your harddrive in a previous dialog, Dreamweaver suddenly seems to have “forgotten” where your site is? It happens to me all the time – in fact, it just happened again, so I thought I’d share one of those little nuggets that make you say, “OMG! I can’t believe I never noticed that before!”. It’s called the Site Root button. And the worst (ok, actually it’s the best) thing about it is that it’s been right under your nose in the Save dialog.
And here’s an added bonus, if you are placing images which are not currently in your site (I very often toss the images that I want to use on my desktop and then let Dreamweaver move them to my site folder for me) and once again discover that you need to head back to your site root so that you can instead choose that nifty image that’s already in your site’s images folder, the Site Root button is right there to take you back!
