Use the Security Assist Wizard to create the Login pages, and use the Data Assist wizard to create the Search / Results pages.

Then use Framework builder plugins to add the Security assist / search functionality to your existing pages.

See the following tutorial for details:

for details on adding upload or download, see the following tutorial:

I tried to follow the tutorial for upload/download, and as you probably already guessed, it no worky.

The tutorial is for CS3 and above but in CC certain things have changed.

Step 1
2. In the ID field enter 'upload'.
3. In the Label field enter 'Upload File'.

In CC there isnt an ID or Label entry in the property inspector, instead there is Name, Title, etc


Creating upload behavior
2. From the Trigger menu, choose Button: Submit pressed.

In CC the only option that had "submit" in it was, "Current Page Submit" (????)

Im not sure if these are where I went wrong but i cant seem to get it to work.

Dreamweaver CC will use the Name for the ID, It automatically adds the label without allowing you to set it, you can set the label text in design view after it is added to the page.

your Submit button uses the button element type, it should be using the Submit element type instead. since it is not a submit element type, it is not shown in the trigger list, your button will not actually submit the form until it is converted to a submit type.

Ok, thats good to know, wish the tutorial reflected that, but on my second attempt, file_upload2.php, i do have it as submit type and still nothing.

you form tag:
<form>


needs a name attribute, method and encoding type:
<form method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" id="upload_file">

If you use the DW Insert menu to add the form in design view, and the file element, these attributes are added automatically. If you add the elements into code view, you need to add them manually.

Awesome! you got it working!

I had no idea that inserting the form tag in split view, code side, would just give the generic <form></form> tag.

Can i suggest that the tutorials written for DW CS3-4 be updated to reflect the differences in dialog boxes in CC? I have the feeling there are others like me lost when instructions are written and the options in CC differ?
