    SS Files in Dreamweaver CS4 Link to this post

    I followed the guide for Dreamweaver CS4 in the wiki ( http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=tools:dreamweaver ) but even after closing Dreamweaver, it still will not treat *.ss files like html or anything.

    Anyone got this to work ?

    I hate to be that guy, but the easiest solution is to not use Dreamweaver. YAY NETBEANS!

    Sorry

    I haven't had a lot of luck with Dreamweaver, these days I use Aptana (http://aptana.com/) with the PHP plugin.

    Works with SS files like a charm .

    I got it working fine on CS4 for mac, I don't think there was any trick. I still prefer using Coda though. Aptana's interface was too un-mac-like and it wasn't interacting with the clipboard properly. But it has a lot of great features.

    @dalesaurus : Plus one for NetBeans, I thought Aptana was a good IDE until I made the switch. I do miss the way that Aptana provides CSS previews though.

    Have you found a way to make Netbeans manage highlighting and indentation for the template tags? Right now I have the program set to treat .ss files as html but find it annoying that the auto formatting doesn't indent the contents of <% control %> and <% if %> blocks.

    @Ryoken : All I can offer are some basic trouble shooting questions.
    - Have you double checked the files to make sure that the changes were made in the correct place and that they are still there?
    - Do you have any Adobe processes running in the background? If so they might be causing the old setting to persist and you may need to do a full restart.

    Hi Mo,

    I use Aptana too, but I don't know, how I can get a syntax-highlighting in a ss-file.

    @JL, unfortunately not. I enabled the ss file ext as an HTML page which gets me by I hope to be insanely bored some day soon and write s set of SS specific templates. I don't know how hard writing a syntax highlighting package is but how hard can it be?

    hi

    i use CS4 with SS and it works fine. here is how i did it.

    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CS4\configuration\Extensions.txt .... add the extension SS under HTML Documents and PHP files save and close.

    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CS4\configuration\DocumentTypes\MMDocumentTypes.xml
    add SS extension as below

    <documenttype id="HTML" internaltype="HTML" winfileextension="html,htm,shtml,shtm,stm,tpl,lasso,xhtml,SS" macfileextension="html,htm,shtml,shtm,tpl,lasso,xhtml,ssi,SS" file="Default.html" writebyteordermark="false">

    make sure DW is closed and you have write permissions to these folders

    hope this works for you guys
