  1. [!--quoteo(post=332992:date=Jan 3 2006, 06:30 PM:name=moberemk)--][div class=\'quotetop\']QUOTE(moberemk @ Jan 3 2006, 06:30 PM) 332992[/snapback][/div][div class=\'quotemain\'][!--quotec--] DMX doesn't have very much ability when it comes to PHP. Dreamweaver considers PHP files to be HTML files with PHP code inside, not echo commands. Therefore, your all-code pages won't work there. Sorry. Yes, the files I have been using so far have been pure PHP, no HTML in them at all, save for inside some echo commands. So how do I work around this? So are you saying that to use DMX with PHP, I should just create my HTML files and put PHP in them, save them with a php extension, but let DMX create them "as" html? (And on a side note, notepad++ is quite sufficient for making coding easier as far as visually enhancing the code for understandability. If that's the only reason for using Dreamweaver, it's not worth it. If I can't take advantage of any of the WYSIWYG features for layout, or the organizational features for large site management, I might as well continue to hand-code in notepad++., or use zend or something cheaper or open-source)
  2. I have been using PHP and MySQL for some time now, hand-coding everything in plain text editors. My new boss is insisting that I learn Dreamweaver MX (because that is what he has), so I sat down with it today. I can NOT get it to work with my PHP files though. I can open, create, and edit any kind of file, but when I open or create a PHP file I can't do anything other than enter plain text. All of the tools go dim, and I am unable to take advantage of any of the supposedly useful features of Dreamweaver. Basically I am stuck with a very hoggish text editor when looking at php files. Any advice? What might I be doing wrong here?
