Yes, I'm into PHP. It still works with it, though.

Oh cool, I didn't know it worked with VWD.

So if you can't afford Dream Weaver get VWD.

Before I got dream weaver, I used front page because it came with Windows 98 which I have two licenses for. LOL

Actually, VWD doesn't work with PHP. What I do is save them as .html files, then open them up. VWD can handle HTML files, so it shows it with syntax highlighting, design view etc. Then I rename it to .php ... and it remains open! :D

But you can edit PHP files with it using that trick, of renaming it. :D

so i guess VWD is really good but it can't test PHP files in the program though. :(

I have dreamweaver proffesional 8 but i won't use it. I don't typicly use WYSIWYG. At least not ones that are meant to be used for that. I usualy make a whole site in Photoshop CS2 then slice it so that I can add in parts I need and export it as HTML. Once I finish that I go into the code and climb through it making it more dynamic.

Nope, I'm in a class where we make web sites and we use dream weaver.


They tried to make us use a wysiwyg in school but we talked them into just letting us code in the end. they made us use C#.net visual editor so now we can make apps but don't know how to code an app that uses a form or any other visual componet from scratch. that was the last strawl for me

I have dreamweaver pro 8 also but I don't like to use the WYSIWYG editors.

We have to use dream weaver in the class I'm in, it's a requirement for the course to know how to use it.

That's what I'm going to do for the final project but I still prefer the simple text editors. The only thing that I like about dream weaver is the the feature were it fills in part of the code for you.

Like as your typing, i forget why dream weaver calls that.

VWD does that as well, and it's free.

Not necessarily. All Apple products are eye-wateringly expensive, and they're not better. :)

I have to disagree though, apple products are better than products for windows I think.
