    ohhhhh scroots , I dunno what to say

    I dont know cos I dont use frontpage but I generally hear that it tends to interfere with the PHP code.

    I know Dreamweaver is more accepting of PHP these days but I cant recommend that either .

    I use EditPlus which is a glorified text-editor as is UltraEdit which a lot rave about as well.

    But I hear that HTML-kit is a very good front-page-a-like IDE but with PHP (and many other languages) syntax highlighting built in etc.

    maybe its time to turn away from the Dark-Side , you know you want to
    resistance is...

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)

    I don't think so

    I don't think that you can edit PHP code in front page, I have tried but it failed. I use dreamweaver now, which does handle PHP pretty well.

    Funny how Front Page supports ASP isn't it?

    Dreamweaver is very good with PHP. Has a built in code library for PHP that that makes suggestions as you type and gives you a list of possible properties etc as you type.

    Greetings,

    To those using Dreamweaver with PHP, I'm curious if you are able to veiw your includes in the design mode with Dreamweaver? I've not been able to make this happen despite using the most recent Dreamweaver MX and PHP/Apache running at the same time.

    Thanks!

    I have. I didn't do anything to make it happen either. I had just noticed it one day while I working with some included files that they were showing up in design view. That was really cool.

    Microsoft was the pioneer developer of the ASP construct, and the creator of MS FrontPage. Thusly, they are compatible.

    Trying to edit PHP in FrontPage will just anger you.

    Just in case anyone else runs into this, I had to remove the DOCUMENT_ROOT stuff from my PHP scripts for the includes to work in Dreamweaver.
