Dreamweaver Newbie Needs Help!
Posted 04 January 2006 - 12:05 AM
Any advice? What might I be doing wrong here?

I have never experienced the problems your having though, for starters, I would just try a uninstall and reinstall and see if that helps

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)

go to new then you should see a window with things like templates etc. choose PHP and then start working with it.
That is what happens with DW8 anyway. It's kinda silly really.

Have you created a testing server for PHP?
You can do both from Site>manage Sites on the menu bar

There is a "Code", "Both" OR "Design".
Just checking all of the facts...
FYI: You'll want to be in "Code" Mode if you don't already know.

is it worth it to try to use these features or are do they overly complicate things.
