After having a layout of my choice I want a script that automatically updates the web pages with whatever new media changes I have made from the corresponding folders on the server.
 
Say when I delete or add new media files. I would not want to update pages html code myself like what I have been doing.
 
It is so tiresome to code html for change or updates in the existing folders
 
Here is a scenario;
 
After designing my webpages layouts with placeholders in place at the beginning then wish to replace these hundreds of placeholders with the desired actual media in the shortest time possible without talking many days coding each media file name and alt properties

I use PHP code to dynamically populate photo galleries.  See example below.

For audio & video, it works best if you have a player that supports playlists.

No.  That goes beyond the scope of this Dreamweaver user-to-user forum.   We don't build free websites here.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

You can have a at www.xtc-cards.com and face book page I own (*Say It Media
-Animated Smartphone Multimedia*) for the idea.

I designed this website myself over 3 years ago.

I have now have different ideas and with many MP4 30 seconds to 1 minutes
video clips that can act in addition to the above website ideas can work as
statuses and memes for sharing freely.

After kicking of I would hire professional website designers to advise.
