PHP Editors *MERGED TOPIC*

So my question is this. Is there a good piece of coding software, similar to what I currently use, but is updated more and is better? It also needs to be free to downlaod [img src=\"style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/wink.gif\" style=\"vertical-align:middle\" emoid=\":wink:\" border=\"0\" alt=\"wink.gif\" /]

One annoying thing is, its not 100% stable, sometimes it decides to throw a tonne of error messages out at once, reload it and all is ok again. Doesn't happen ALL the time, just every so often. But as its open source, I would image it will get fixed soon.

as for free software, i really like to use [a href=\"http://www.scintilla.org/SciTE.html\" target=\"_blank\"]SciTE[/a] for my straight coding. it does all your auto indentions and everything, but it's nice since it's a completely standalone program.
one other freebee that i'd recommend is [a href=\"http://www.eclipse.org/\" target=\"_blank\"]Eclipse[/a] from IBM. free to download, and free to install modules. they've got absolutely incredible web dev modules for free. plus, if you like using Vi in linux as your text editor, you can pay like $9 and get the Vi plugin where you can use all your keystrokes in Eclipse... very cool.
anyway, these are some of the better free editors i've come across.

UPDATE tableName SET col1=val1, col2=val2, ... [WHERE clause]
and it puts that on the screen and i just fill in the blanks.
you can even integrate the offline version of the php manual into it, if that's you're thing. and the whole thing is free.
only thing i do not like about it is that if you have multiple files open they are not tabbed. so you have to keep moving windows around, min/maxing, etc.. it's a pain, but i live with it, cuz everything else works great for me [img src=\"style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/smile.gif\" style=\"vertical-align:middle\" emoid=\":smile:\" border=\"0\" alt=\"smile.gif\" /]
okay nvm apparently it does have tabs when you have several files open at once. i just didn't have that feature selected in my preferences (doh!). it's at the bottom instead of the top.
html-kit gets 2 thumbs up from me [img src=\"style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/smile.gif\" style=\"vertical-align:middle\" emoid=\":smile:\" border=\"0\" alt=\"smile.gif\" /]
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community

Alright. Fixed a few things while I had a bit of spare time before the meeting. The logo is clickable. I took out the login box and sized up the nav. There is now /login.php . However, what do I do with the login page? I stared at it for a while, just kinda looking at it, trying to think of something, but nothing came to mind. Any ideas on how to spice up that oh so empty page? Any ideas where I should move the login box instead?

I've tried Eclipse and the Maguma studio packages... didn't really care for either.
Info: PHP Manual

Yeah, sorry bout that. Didn't realize I was posting in the wrong topic. [img src=\"style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/laugh.gif\" style=\"vertical-align:middle\" emoid=\":laugh:\" border=\"0\" alt=\"laugh.gif\" /]
All great suggestions. I downloaded them all and tested them out. PHP Designer was the best. I liked the others, but PHP Designer seemed to offer me more to what I wanted. Thanks all.
