Hi there

I don't know whether anyone can help - downloaded a site with a php extention in dreamweaver and when i try to open the pages i can see a table but no content. When i try code view it is all there. Can anyone help as this is most frustrating.

You need a server to parse the PHP before HTML can be output. Maybe set up WAMP server; http://www.wampserver.com which can run on your local machine and parse the PHP like an online server.

You are welcome. Bear in mind that it will let you view a complete PHP generated page on your PC. Design view will always cause a problem as you might well only get a mark where the PHP should be.

I think CS5 parses PHP...maybe.

I believe you still have to have a testing server set up for that (but I haven't gotten that far with CS5 yet)
