I work on both the PC and the Mac depending on where i'm working, so I use DW - but after toying with textmate, I must say I'll probably jump ship once there's a PC version or a good enough equivalent. I LOVE the functionality you get out of just the tab key when creating functions/classes and when you do quotes, the closing quote gets written automatically with the cursor jumping right in the middle...

Download PHP Designer 2007... it does all that and more.  I've recently switched to it and I won't be going back anytime soon.

I find that I'm moving to pspad... it got tons of little tools, but I can just ignore them... :P

It would become perfect if they do 3 things:

1. create a lite version (without those small tools such Eye Dropper, Color Translator or Lorem Ipsum generator) they would at least make a config to make them invisible
2. Put code snippets (that funny auto code that TextMate got)
3. Code folding

Ooops, sorry

PS Pad already got code snippets, but it's a bit different of TextMate (it's such code completition)

and It got a very nice line bookmarking system, and for me it's better than code folding.

now they just need to make it cleaner making a way to hide those tons of little tools... but this is the way: ignore them.

Eh, I do all my Java and PHP stuff on Textpad. Haven't really bothered looking around for a better editor.

I used to use dreamweaver for php coding. But now I have stopped using DW for php. I use maguma open studio.
Free yet the most advanced. It offers exactly what I need. Intellisense for both native and user functions. Cool class wizard for not only creating and manage classes, but also for understanding new codes. It even supports phpdoc comment syntax which simplifies writing documentation.

It does have some minus points. It's still buggy while closing the program sometimes. Otherwize perfect.

Well Dreamweaver; mainly because it's the only designer I can find that works for the Mac. On the PC I have used software like Notepad++, PHP Designer, and PHP Edit; as well as Quanta Plus on Linux, but none of them really have the complete interface Dreamweaver does. No other software I've used has the software tree Dreamweaver does, which is really convenient and necessary to me. Few others highlight the code properly that Dreamweaver does, and the ones that do don't have a file tree.

I use Programmer's Notepad, just because I need something compact and simple. It supports multiple langagues, but I stick to PHP, JS, CSS, and HTML with that editor, and use XAMPP to run the scripts.

Beginner Tips:
. The more effort you show, the more effort others are likely to put into helping you.
. Think your problems through. Use a little logic and in almost every case you will be able to find what's going on. . References abound. Google's your friend, and manuals aren't hard to find.

Maybe Probably I'm a geek.

Well DW is good however, I think that it's not a php editor. It's just a WYSIWYG editor with php syntax highlighting. You might argue with that but I have used nearly all (I didn't used Maguma, Komodo and BBEdit) the php editors listed here (even the ones that are still beta:). I can honestly say that if you want to go lazy and do the less writing and more sleeping, you should really choose DW. Which has great features like writing code and others. However if you really look to do everything in your project as yourself and you want full control of what's happening, you should try something "better". DW has only support for pure php functions. It does not complete your own classes, which is something really disturbing if you're used to use code completing like me.

PHPed, PHPEclipse, PDT ZDE (my favorite) or even VIM (my "new" favorite) are real php editors. It was sad to not see Emacs here, they are really life changers if you have the patience and the power to keep pushing on meta and ctrl keys. While Emacs and VIM are not IDE's just "editors" they have great features too.

Anyway I suggest everyone to give a try to Zend Studio or PDT (again Zend's eclipse based php developement tool). If you have the patience or bored using windows as you os like me try vim or emacs. They can really change your life (You will love to cut and paste rectangular block with vim, I'm sure:)

No offense, but I think that's stupid. You won't get things like syntax highlighting, automatic indention, line numbers etc. You aren't a better/cooler developer just because you make the work harder for yourself.

Well since I'm used to coding in notepad, I don't need to rely on syntax highlighting.
And I HATE indention. It's a waste of my computer's precious little bytes!
