Newbie with really old Dreamweaver
Posted 02 March 2004 - 08:59 PM
I voluntarily manage a small charity site at http://www.swedauk.org with Dreamweaver 1.2a. There is no budget so I have to use what software I can get together myself and this is the only site I have done (plus a previous incarnation of the same). All in all things haven't gone too badly and we have a useable, if rather bland, site.
I have recently tried inserting some php code into a webpage to do some simple blogging (B2) but as soon as Dreamweaver gets hold of the file it turns it into unsuable mush. Just inserting the following -
<?php /* Don't remove this line, it calls the b2 function files ! */ $blog=1; include ("blog.header.php"); ?>
breaks the page. The more complex bits of php just makes things worse. Doing the same in a text editor and uploading works fine and everything works as expected.
Just opening a usuable html document with some php into Dreamweaver and saving it straight out again results in a radically different and totally unusable file.
I appreciate that 1.2a is pre php but isn't is simple meant to ignore everything between the <?php and ?> tags?
I've tried disabling everything in preferences that modifies or 'corrects' the source but with no luck.
Does anyone know of anyway I might include php in a document without Dreamweaver 1.2a wrecking it?
Any thoughts would be gratefully accepted.
With Kind Regards,

also, there is a program called UltraEdit 32 and a very popular tool - Im not sure if it is free or no though.

I have finally managed to solve my Dreamweaver problem. Apparently PHP will recognise the ASP deliminators - <% %> - as long as it is configured to do so in PHP.ini which my host has kindly done for me.
Dreamweaver treats anthing withing these as a comment and leaves them along.
Thanks again for your tips.
