Expression web tutorials

We have been creating and adding both flash and written tutorials for expression web since its first release (CTP 1) Each tutorial shows you step by step, how to achieve your objective. Tutorials include:

  • Create an expression web template - a full tutorial showing how to turn a blank CSS template into a web site. Including tutorials on building both horizontal and vertical menus.
  • How to insert flash in expression web - complete with download files so that you too can easily insert flash movies into your pages.
  • Create web sites using XML data - An introduction to using XML data in your expression web web pages. The tutorial shows you how to build a basic database and export it as an XML file. It goes on to show you how to get the XML data onto your page, create different layouts, styles and how to filter the results and finally how to use conditional formatting.

There are too many tutorials to mention them all here, your best starting point is the menu on the left.

Free Expression web templates

We have a selection of free expression web templates that you can download in zip format. Our forum also has a specific help section for any questions or issues you might have.

The tutorial looks at the basic styling of text and tables on a page and details how to create, attach, and use an external style sheet. Its a 16 minuets long flash narrated (speakers on) and takes just over 2.5 mins to download. Its well worth a look. Download it from the link below.

I have been working on a web site to push Expression web to its limits and to further my own learning. This web site is a directory for modular buildings and mobile homes and has been built with expression web using xml data and master pages, as has metal building sales. The more  pages added the more expression web slows down. It can cope with approximately 500 pages comfortably but a little slow. 800 pages plus drags it to a standstill. Non the less, with a bit of thought, larger web sites can be build and the beauty of it is i can change just 1 file and the whole lot changes too. Another example can be found here.
