Working with a visual map of your site
You can view a local folder for a Dreamweaver site as a visual map of linked icons, called a site map. Use the site map to add new files to a Dreamweaver site, or to add, modify, or remove links.
The site map shows the site structure two levels deep, starting from the home page. It shows pages as icons and displays links in the order in which they are encountered in the source code.
The site map is ideal for laying out a site structure. You can quickly set up the entire structure of the site, then create a graphic image of the site map.
The site map applies to local sites only.To create a map of a remote site, copy the contents of the remote site into a folder on your local disk, then use the Manage Sites command to define the site as a local site (see Setting up a local folder).
