    I created this website www.koenenkennels.com. I'm wondering if there is a way that my customer could upload puppies available page by herself without me doing it. I created this site in Dreamweaver. My question is what steps do I need to do, to get her to update this page by herself.

    Hi,

    One way to do this might be to set them up with a template HTML page, and give them instructions on how to edit it and upload it (and an associated graphic), and add a link to it from the existing pages. They'd probably have to learn some HTML, and know how to edit pages, and they would need an FTP client (such as Fetch) to upload the pages.

    Some websites use content management systems that allow users to enter the information for a new page and press a button to create new listings, but we're not familiar with those, and probably the website would have to be designed with those in mind.

    There are probably other options, but this question is outside the area of our expertise, sorry.

    Good luck,

    since I created the website in Dreamweaver, would they need to purchase this program? Or is that what the html is all about?

    I understand Fetch's part in the role, just not sure about the other side of it.

    Hi,

    Yes, they would need Dreamweaver, or another HTML editing app, like GoLive, might work.

    There are lower-end web editing applications, such as iWeb, but you can only use iWeb to edit websites created in iWeb, so that wouldn't work for your situation.

    I understand it, I was afraid of that. Another question, if you don't mind. Is it best to enter your metatags and keywords directly into your website or once you sumit your page to a search enginge, is it best to do it there? Or both?

    Hi,

    I believe you should include metatags and keywords in your page itself.

    I do not know if entering the same or other keywords when you submit the page would make a difference or not.

    Hi,

    It looks like you've got the photos working now - they're showing up when I visit the page.

    Best,

    Yes, I got it, thank you! You've been a great help. Is there an expert like you that can help me with Dreamweaver questions too?

    Hi,

    You're welcome, glad it's working.

    We don't have any Dreamweaver experts on the Fetch staff, sorry.

    However, Adobe has a Dreamweaver support forum:

    http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/webforums/forum/index.cfm?forumid=12

    and you might be able to find some knowledgeable users there, or recommendations of where to find help (I have no experience with that message board, but it seems like a good place to try).

    Best,
