Can I use Dreamweaver or other software to build my site?

If the design software that you are using is capable of producing clean, standards-compliant HTML, you can generally build most of the site's content in that program and then copy the code and paste the code into the source view of your pages by clicking the Source button Source buttonon the editor toolbar.
 
Due to the number of steps it would take to build a site this way, it is generally best if you use the tools we provide through the Designs manager and editor toolbar to build your site.  You will end up with a much more consistent look and feel as well as less frustration with the results.
 
Programs like Expression Web, Dreamweaver, and Front Page are meant to be used when a Content Management System like ours is not included with your site hosting package.
