Step 3 Still in the Servers section of the Site Setup dialog, ensure Remote and Testing are checked for the server you just defined. This will make Dreamweaver check against your blog for any changes made. Don’t worry about this feature, though – changes don’t go live until you sync them. Click Save and Done.

Step 4 Open the Files panel (Window > Files) and click the Expand button to see panes for both remote and local files. Click the Connect icon to connect with your blog. You should now see remote files – all the elements WordPress installs – in the Remote Server area, and an empty folder for local files. Double-click index.php and click Yes when Dreamweaver asks to fetch dependent files.

Step 5 On opening the blog page, Dreamweaver will recognise that WordPress uses dynamic files. Click Discover, then Yes in the dialog. When prompted by Dreamweaver, click Live View and Yes (twice). Your blog should now be visible. Click the Filter Related Files button at the far right of the Source Code bar and deselect everything apart from CSS.
