These are the kind of threads where you’d hope a dev stops by and says “Oh, cool idea. EDIT: Fixed!” But sadly, that’s not how it goes for some reason :(

Cool idea though!

Nice and calm, and a bit of a sob story will get you a pass with the geniuses.

Whenever someone calls them ‘the geniuses’, I can’t help but think of that one South Park episode ;)

Without spaces between $string and [ , I don’t know why it displays the code like this.

The <pre> tags are more appropriate for blocks of code. I’ve edited your post accordingly :)

Note that you did in fact type spaces there, but PHP accepts that just fine ;-)

Ah, cool! Looking forward to seeing what ships out of this hack week!


Looks like I wandered into the forums on a particularly bad spam day!

Do come again some other day, and compare ;)

I recently purchased a VPS, and I really regret not making that move sooner. The freedom tastes oh so sweet :chuckle:

You’re not looking for a PDF editor, but rather a way of exporting a PDF from your current editing software, right? Or do they supply you with a PDF template? Surely Microsoft Office is able to do that at this point?

So yeah, git. ;)

If there’s anything you take away from this thread, it is that you should try out a version control system. Git and SVN are currently the most popular, so it makes sense to give those a shot. Personally, I’ve had a better experience with git. If you’re somewhat familiar with the command line, learning the basic commands (pull, add, status, commit, push) on the CLI right from the start will make understanding a GUI much easier.


- How people get away with just using a lightweight editor like sublimetext for editing entire sites

I’ve been using Sublime for pretty much everything lately. I realise I’m missing some great features (most notably intelligent auto-completion that the Jetbrains products boast), but the simplicity makes up for that. For me, it’s an alternative to vim rather than a full IDE.

What do you currently do in Dreamweaver that an editor like Sublime Text would not be able to do?
