How do I add a dynamic database to a submenu link?

I'm building a dynamic database with PHP MyAdmin, a SQL connection and Dreamweaver CC (php). I want to build a home with the menu, if you click on the menu it opens a page explain the content of the submenu, but if you click directly on the submenu it opens a dynamic database (only photos) where I could add or remove any item and each item have a link that open a page where you could read all the information.

I usually start by creating a non-dynamic version of the page I want to build with only maybe 2-3 images. Then once you have that working you can more easily figure out what you need to repeat and get from your database. Also, once you have that built and can show us what you are trying to do, we can comment more specifically about what to do on what lines of code.

I already build a layout but I need help because I just started learn how to use dreamweaver, know almost nothing about code. So I don't know how you have to think when have to build a website. I just don't know if only the home if static and everything else is dinamic so you have 1 page for every kind of page or 1 page for everything besides the database table and the database info.

You would have a single page to display all of the photos, because that would come from the database.

Since this is your first time, I'd start by building a fully functional site with just 2 images however you can do it to get it working the way you want it to work.

Then post that to a live url and I can better comment on how to make it dynamic.
