Seems that this blog doesn't like it when I embed a skydrive file so here's the link to the PDF from yesterday's live meeting.

From the December LM

If you missed today's live meeting you can download the pdf of the tips, tricks and shortcuts.

Other tips from the meeting that are not in the PDFs including:

  • Creating your own toolbar with the items you use most on it. Including the Refresh button which Ian says works better than F5.
  • Getting the update [see my previous blog post] that resolves the macro problem in Expression Web on Vista.
  • Use a double pipe || to create a code snippet that wraps existing code in a comment.

If I missed any tips let me know.

As with the last session we will end with a whiteboard discussion that will allow participants to download a pdf of any notes on the whiteboard.

Notes from November Live Meeting

by cdwise 25. November 2008 07:57

In case you missed it we hosted a live meeting discussion on Expression Web a couple of weeks ago. The best part of the meeting was a whiteboard discussion of Expression Web resources and add-ins.

I had attempted to record the meeting but due to technical difficulties that didn't work out so well but I was able to capture the whiteboard notes as a PDF. I thought about retyping them here but decided to attach the pdf instead.


Topics for future Live Meeting suggestions include:

  • Bugs in Expression Web
  • Shortcuts, tips & tricks for working faster and creating better pages in Expression Web
  • Migrating from FrontPage to Expression Web
  • Guests from the Expression Web product team
  • How to choose a hosting company
  • Using FTP in Expression Web and third party tools for when Expression's FTP doesn't work (IIS 7, sFTP & FTPs)
  • When to use a CMS like DotNetNuke, Drupal or Joomla vs lightweight CMS like Content Seed or just a plain old static site.

We are hoping to have a monthly Live Meeting to discuss Expression Web and web design topics (including Dreamweaver and other editors). Let us know what topics you would like to see discussed.
