I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I got an good answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can answer it..
If I want to add to or change a page, most of the time I use the Webdeveloper plugin in Firefox to get things like I want them using raw HTML, then I figure out how to duplicate the the HTML code in whatever osC PHP page I happen to be working on..
This minimizes the "experimenting until you get it right" time on a live site...
Yepp, I do something like that with Dreamweaver - take out the HTML as a block and edit it as a separate file so I can see the result, and then copy and paste it back in..
But how do I figre out which part of my php-file is html?.
I am completely new to this and dont have a single clue when I look at the file...
Thanks for the link, but it doesnt answer my question..
As mentioned before, I DONT have a clue on how to determine what is html and what is php in a file?..
Anything between PHP tags:.
******** Code found in this area is PHP ********.
Anything outside of those tags is HTML..
If you've got a working iPage site you should get someone to help you or fix it for you because if you don't know what you're doing you're going to screw it up (temporarily)..
And that's nothing against you..
I don't know how to perform brain surgery so I'd screw that up if I tried it..
We all have our talents and our shortcomings...
I had someone setting up a shop for me foit OS Commerce. Now I want to shuffle around some pictures and edit some text. Since I am not a programmer/designer I have no clue what to do, since the only option that is given through OS Commerce is to edit the source code..
Is there another way to edit a php file? It would be great if it could be done like editing an html-file where I se the design od the iPage website and just click on pictures/text and edit it...
Nope, meierli, programs like DreamWeaver that help you edit HTML files cannot "render" PHP files - that's because PHP files are dynamic, and require the services of a web server to "parse" them..
That being said, I edit my PHP files in Dreamweaver, post my work to a web server, and view it in my browser. Obviously you have to give yourself some time to get used to working with, or around, the PHP. Many PHP files are 98% HTML - you just have to orient yourself..
I believe there are also some options for viewing PHP on a local computer by using software that emulates a server, but I'll leave that up to the experts to answer..
