.LBI File Extension

Dreamweaver Library File

Question: What is an LBI File?

Have you found, downloaded or received an LBI file, but don't know which software program is required to open it?

Before attempting to open an LBI file, you'll need to determine what kind of file you are dealing with and whether it is even possible to open or view the file format.

Answer: Files which are given the .LBI extension are known as Dreamweaver Library files, however other file types may also use this extension. If you are aware of any additional file formats that use the LBI extension, please let us know.

How to open a LBI file:

The best way to open an LBI file is to simply double-click it and let the default assoisated application open the file. If you are unable to open the file this way, it may be because you do not have the correct application associated with the extension to view or edit the LBI file.

This file format was added to our database by a visitor to this site, but no additional information was provided. We have yet to investigate this file type further, or there was not enough information available at the time to report accurately on the format.

Please check back soon for more information as we are constantly updating our file descriptions based on search frequency.

Tip: Try to open the LBI file using a text-editor such as Notepad, as many file types contain simply contain unformatted plain-text and can viewed correctly using this method.

A Dreamweaver lbi file enables you to have the same content on multiple pages. The lbi file can be changed and all pages would reflect that change.

You could have a navigation link bar on each page of your site loaded from the same source.
That link bar would be created in html/css etc., saved as navlinkbar.lbi (or any name) to a directory on your site. It could be called library or any name you choose.
Add a line similar to the one below on your site, wherever you want the content to appear.
The url can be local or in full with http://

If you need to change your link bar or any content of your lbi file, simply change that file and upload it to your server. Any and all pages will reflect that change the next time they are visited.

If I recall, lbi includes require asp pages rather than html pages to run.
