Dreamweaver CS 5.5 has incorporated a new feature called Phone Gap.
Using phone gap you can easily create websites optimized for mobile
devices such as
iPads,
iPhones, and Android phones. The great thing
about using this feature is that it will automatically create a version for
multiple devices. There is nothing extra you need to do.
Setting Up
There are two things we need to do before we actually create our site.
First we need to set up a local folder to put our site files in. Second we
need to set up our remote server.
To set your local folder do the following:

Decide where on your computer you want to put your site files.

Create a new folder there.

Name your folder.

Inside of that folder you can create a folder called images to house
any image files you may use.
To set your remote folder do the following:

Click
Site
in the main menu and choose
New Site
.

In the
Site Setup for...
window, type in a name into the Site Name
text field.

Click
Servers
located on the left side of the
Site Setup for...
window.

Next click the
plus (+)
symbol to add a new server.

In the
Basic
tab put in your server info. This will depend on where
you are having your site hosted. If you are using your web space at
WIU use the following info.

Server Name: Can be whatever you want.

Connect Using: SFTP.

SFTP Address: sftp.wiu.edu.

Username: Use your ECOM username.

Password: Use your ECAM password.

Click the
Save
checkbox if you want dreamweaver to
remember your login info.

Click
Test
to see if dreamweaver can connect successfully using
the info you provided.

If the test was successful click
Save
.

Now you will need to save the file and all dependent files:

Click File > Save and save the file to your local folder you created
earlier.

Name your file index.html.

Click Save.

Next you will see the Copy Dependent Files window.

Click Copy.

Now in your directory of site files you will see your index.html page along
with a folder called jquery-mobile. This folder contains all the javascript
(.js) and style sheet (.css) pages needed to make the site work.

Editing Your Site
You can edit your site as you would any other site by using the Code view,
Design view, or the Split view. If you are HTML savvy you can edit the HTML
directly in the Code view. Otherwise you can use the design view. You
can switch between views by using the buttons on the upper left of the
window.
The following image is an example of the Split view. The Code view is on
the left while the Design view is on the right.

Live View
By clicking Live View you will see exactly what your mobile site will look
like. Live view appears in the Design window. You can also click on any of
the links and they will work as well.

you three different versions of your site.

If you click the drop arrow next to the Multiscreen button it gives you a list
a different resolutions that you can view one at a time.
Upload to Server
When you are ready to view your page you will need to upload your
page to your server. Do the following:

Click the File Management button at the top of the screen.

Choose
Put
. This “puts” your file up on the server based on the server
info you entered in earlier. Now you can view your page on your
mobile device.
