View Full Version : Dreamweaver CS5 and Wordpress: Design view is not working

02-28-2011, 02:04 PM
I use DW CS5 to modify and edit my Wordpress theme but, altough the Live view is working correctly, I keep getting a blank page in the Design view (sometimes I also get this message above the blank page: "This page contains instructions for processing server that can not be displayed in Design mode" (translated from french).
I've tried to reinstall wordpress but even with a fresh install I can't get the design view to work.
Can someone help me please?

PS: I use WP on localhost for now and I have Easyphp installed on my computer

That's the way it works. When you use PHP Connect (or Discover or whatever Adobe calls it). You have to edit in the code and see the results in Live View.

Thanks for the answer
But the reason I ask this question is beacuse I've just followed a course about DW and WP on lynda.com, and the design view works for the teacher (he uses wamp or xamp instead of easyphp, but appart from that we have the exact same setings)...so there must be something wrong with my settings.
I don't know what is php connect.

I think you'll find he was actually using the Live View option (which is displayed in the Design View window).
