Dreamweaver and syntax highlight on inc files

Recommended Posts

Greetings

 

I'm using dreamweaver as IDE to PHP and I need to use inc files, but all I can see is black code. The code is hard to understand. How can I turn on the php syntax highlight for inc files on DW(if this is possible)?

 

Thank you very much

You are going to have to go behind the scenes in your dreamweaver cofiguration files and set it up yourself. DWMX is semi-open source, with a lot of the program run by javascript and XML...open DWMX and go the help section and look up customizing dreamweaver, it is very powerful and fantastic, you can even set it to have people enter a password in order to use the program, if you are fluent with javascript...

 

anyway you will have to hand-code this option in about 3 or 4 different XML files. One suggestion is before you make changes, make a backup of the original, because if you screw it up, the program will fail...

Are your .inc files HTML headers for page layout etc?

 

If they are, simply re-save the .inc file as HTML while you ammend it. Once completed, resave as .inc

 

Works for me.

I have re-written my backend XML files in my configuration folder to view all inc and other files I see fit as php files. It is really easy to do, you just need to edit the XML files.

You shouldn't name your include files like "file.inc"

 

try naming them "file.inc.php" .. problem solved. :) no reason why you should name them .inc over .inc.php

 

Also if you leave your "file.inc" files in the web directory people will be able to view the source by going to www.yoursite.com/file.inc and therefore this is a security issue epesically if you have database username and passwords in there.

 

If you still want to use the .inc naming convention make sure the include files are in a folder that is not accessable via a browser. Arbritary file paths is not a deterent to a hacker.

You can also write a small script in your Apache INF file to forbid access to inc files.
