Hello everyone this is my first topic in this forum and I know this might be easy or stupid to many of you but I am learning.

So my question is how can create a full website in Fireworks? I know how to create the master(main) page but I dont know how to create the other pages such as Contact, About us etc. Basically I wanna make a navigable website but I dont know how? Thank you in advance

Although it is technically possible to create a full web site in Fireworks, it is not advisable. Fireworks is a design tool, not a coding tool. The code it generates is either intended for prototyping or is preliminary code (or code snippets) ready to be edited, modified, and finalized in an HTML and CSS editor (like Dreamweaver.)

If you want to use Fireworks to design the site and generate the preliminary code, then learn more about the CSS and Images export available in CS4 and later. There are several articles on Adobe.com in the developer centers for Fireworks and Dreamweaver, and there are several videos on Adobe TV. Jim Babbage has also written articles at CommunityMX and videos for Lynda.com.

So is this means I have to create the master(main) page on FW and then create the other pages using HTML? I mean individually?
