Setting up (mapping to) your site in Dreamweaver

Access is given to staff who update and maintain University internet and/or intranet websites. Before the web pages can be edited, access needs to be set up and Dreamweaver mapped to the local and remote/live files.

Access to your site

If you have Dreaweaver and are trained by the Web Team please email to websupport@canterbury.ac.nz the following:

  • user code
  • name of the site(s) you will be administering
  • site URL (web address)
  • whether your computer is a Mac or PC

Mapping Dreamweaver

This connects your computer through Dreamweaver to your site files. Instructions for PC users are at site access (staff only).

If you work on a Mac you will need to log a job with Assyst, or ring x6060 for Mac support.

Creating a desktop shortcut to your site files

New images or files to be downloaded from your site need to be added directly to the appropriate folder in your site, not through Dreamweaver. (You add an image to a page, or link within Dreamweaver). A shortcut to your site files is easiest. Instructions for PC users are at site access (staff only).

If you work on a Mac you will need to log a job with Assyst, or ring x6060 for Mac support.
