    Hello everyone,

    I have just started using Dreamweaver CS3, to work on a site that has been up and running for a number of years now.

    The site has basically grown organically over the past 10 years, and has been administrated by a 3 person office, none of whom have had website admin as their primary responsibility; as a result, imagine a walk-in closet that has been crammed full of stuff for the past 10 years, and now I am attempting to clean it out and organize it.

    I am having difficulty discovering how some files on the web server are linked to. I am able to look at the files that a particular file LINKS to itself, but I want to see what files link to the file I'm working on. Is this even possible? Can Dreamweaver CS3 do it? Do I need a different piece of software?

    Thank you in advance,

    Jeremy ...

    If it were me doing your job, I would
    start all over again from the beginning.

    Keep your existing site online and active and
    create a whole new site (totally XHTML/CSS)
    no <tables> no <frames> etc.

    I'm guessing the old site is looking passe and
    old fashioned, and needs a new facelift?

    As you build the new site, take any needed
    graphics/photos from the "old" site and put
    them in directories for the new site.

    Cut and paste any needed text from the "old"
    site and paste into the new site.

    ... and you should really be using DW in the
    manual edit mode, or whatever they call it.
    don't use the WYSIWYG mode.

    There are many CSS templates you can use to
    get started with a CSS layout. Use Google.

    and by creating a new site, you can utilize some of
    the latest things, like PHP, MySQL, AJAX, Flash, etc.
