While the topic has gone astray, I use TurboPad from http://turbopad.sf.net/" target="_blank


Back on topic, Anything new in the templating system? Or is it deemed mostly done?

Setting it to .html is good...

Yes, i use Dreamweaver...

Its the best i've got... it doesnt screw anything up... and i spend about 95% of the time in code view...

Displays it all fine in preview... but i also write in PHP and it gives fancu colours :mrgreen:

I'm encountering a slight problem.

Previously, i was able to use S_ROW_COUNT in my loops, something very useful to my MODs - yet recently, after a CVS update, it no longer works... and i'm having to do this via PHP by manually setting the row count.

Has this feature been altered or updated... or am i going on about a bug? Either way, im happy to use PHP to calculate it if there is no simple solution currently.

After having passed hours to fix what it has screw, I hit the del key with a large smile. Since then, I use Editplus, which is definitively the top of all I have tried yet : the HTML preview is just perfect : not too little, not to much, the edit text feature are amazing, the reliability of the results at top, and the project management efficient. What ask for more ? :)
I have no problems using Dreamweaver with tpl or html, htm, php etc. It's a matter of going through the raw config .txt files and changing it's behaviors. If they would just add file permissions ability to their FTP it would be a champ.

There is a good article on it at http://www.alistapart.com" target="_blank
