Using CSS Sculptor

Hi Although I have managed to use the add-on a few times I did so without much understanding. The add on does not create a web and Expression Web 2 (EW2) only offers its defaults.

CSS Sculptor does not give advice as to how to create a website. If you start with using CSS you get in to difficulties. So if I start with an EW2 blank one page web and THEN select from the file menu "New CSS Sculptor Page" and select what I want to include everything is fine until I get to the option to have an external CSS sheet. You cannot do this unless you have created a blank css file first and CSS sculptor does not accept the path to that file. So the user is forced to select "Embed".

I have tried creating a folder for the web first and also created a blank CSS file in that folder. But CSS Sculptor would not accept that information.

What I would like to know is how do I create a website using CSS Sculptor. One would have thought that one should be able to create a website by using CSS Sculptor straight away.

Not sure 'create a website' is accurate. More so with Sculptor you create the 'layout' for a 'web page' or 'template'. To my knowledge you can't create a website with sculptor. You may be thinking of Site Assist?

CSS Sculptor is not a tool to create a full Website. it is a tool for creating a CSS Layout.

Once the Layout s created, you can create a template from it. then all of the pages in your site can be created from that template.

To use an external style sheet, Select New Style Sheet from the select list on the output tab, then click the folder icon to select the location and create the new css file.
