Selecting Recently Modified Files in Dreamweaver

on Friday, May 22, 2009

If you are making multiple changes/additions to a site in Dreamweaver, and are ready to upload them to the web server, there's a neat little time saving command hiding in the Edit menu called Select Recently Modified.

Select Recently Modified calls up the dialogue box shown below, where you can give Dreamweaver a specific time frame--we'll use the last 7 days as an example--and Dreamweaver will automatically select all the files in your local site that have been added or modified in the last 7 days. It will select not only newly modified webpages, but all recently added images and documents as well. All you need to do then is hit the "upload" button (the up arrow on the toolbar) and Dreamweaver will upload those files.

This feature is available in all versions of Dreamweaver, from Dreamweaver 3 all the way to CS4.
