Edit in Dreamweaver?

I'm trying to make some modifications to the menu buttons, graphics, and layout of my shop template.  I'm no coder.. so the whole vision liquid editing would be a massive learning curve.

I have done some work in Dreamweaver to layout web pages.

Is it possible to edit my template in Dreamweaver?  I was surprised to see everything is .liquid instead of .html     When I signed up for Shopify, I really expected it would be much simpler to customize a template beyond the basic template editor.

 

Thanks!

This will answer your question. .liquid files are html files with the liquid scripting language to pull dynamic information from your shopify db:

Thanks for the quick reply Jamie.

 

Is there somewhere that I can see which CSS file to link with which .liquid file so that I can graphically see what is going on in order to move/modify naviation buttons?

 

Maybe I'm not asking exactly the right question.. but I see the assets folder has a few different CSS files in it.  I assume I need to point the liquid htm file towards those css files to get it to look right in dreamweaver... but not sure what to link where.   Maybe some fumbling around with it will reveal the answer.

 

Thanks again!

You should really only need one css file. Think of theme.liquid as the shell and all other templates get injected into the shell with the {{ content_for_layout }} tag. You really should start here and simply read up on the anatomy of a Shopify site:

 

The wiki will be your friend in the coming days.

You're welcome! After you read through the docs I encourage you to download vision and just start playing around with the code a bit.
