great little mod for dreamweaver! - you might want to add this in the documentation wiki. Create a page like textmates - http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=tools:textmate and link to it from the overview page - http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=tools

I prefer VIM actually. However, whenever I work on a Mac it's textmate all the way -- that luxury usually means I'm developing Rails, not SS - red.

Hi BMC,

Here you go - it's relatively easy to add .ss files to the php file stack in DW

This reminds me actually.

I've had the above setup for a while, and things work good for the most part except I can't open .ss files from within the Dreamweaver's file panel. When I click on .ss files, it says there is no application associated with it. The dreamweaver icon is used beside the filename, and I can open them by double clicking within windows explorer.

Does this happen with anybody else?

Hi Lee - yep - if you follow the tut in the second link you should be good to go - after stepping through the adobe Live doc I can now open up the file from within the sites panel no problem.

The two files in the tut you need to edit are

Extensions.txt
MMDocumentTypes.xml

Ahh I know what I did. I had originally followed these steps a while ago, and I accidentally copied the path to the extensions.txt file for dreamweaver 8, not CS3. I had upgraded to CS3, but the old application data folder still remained on my computer. I didn't notice the incorrect path.

Much better. Now I don't have to open .ss files from explorer, or right click in dreamweaver and 'open with'.
