    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

    Hi borreij,
    Is this a solution for Dreamweaver on MAC or does it work on Windows too?

    I remember trying what the SS wiki said a while back but I could never get it to work and had to reinstall the software basically, that's on windows that is.

    Any help would be great

    I had issues getting this to work with CS5.5 while using Windows 7. This is how I fixed it.

    I followed the directions found at http://doc.silverstripe.org/old/tools:dreamweaver.

    I then changed C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CS4\configuration\Extensions.txt by adding the extension SS under HTML Documents and PHP files. Saved and closed.

    After completing these two steps, the color coding was still not working. Then the did the following:

    This following part is what fixed the issue for me... I had to edit the following file: C:\Users\[USERNAMEGOESHERE]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Dreamweaver CS5.5\en_US\Configuration\DocumentTypes\MMDocumentTypes.xml. I had to change Change Line 3 into:

    <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">

    Save and close. Now open Dreamweaver and open a .ss file. The color coding should work.

    I Hope that helps fix your problem!

    Update for Dreamweaver CS6 on Mac

    Follow the previous instructions, but you'll need to remember to do the same edit to the following file:

    users/[YOU]/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Dreamweaver CS6/en_US/Configuration/DocumentTypes/MMDocumentTypes.xml

    Note that on MacOS 10.7 (Lion), the Library folder is hidden by default, so you'll have to un-hide it by going to Finder, Go > Go to Folder... and entering ~/Library/

    Or even easier than typing... alt-click the 'GO' finder menu and as if by magic 'Library' will appear ;)
