December 30th, 2007, 02:35 PM #1HELP with Rapidweaver and PHP
I want to purchase Rapidweaver, and get going with it, but if I can't get PHP to work with it, I may have second thoughts.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
Also any thoughts, opinions on Rapidweaver?

Are the pages ending in .php? If not (if they end in .html) you need to instruct your server to parse php on .html pages. That can be done via CPanel on some servers or through your .htaccess file.

I haven't published anything - just using the demo preview, but I have had extensions set to .php (and tried various others).

Hmmmm...Where is the demo preview being hosted? If it is on your computer the .php may not work. Even when I use Adobe GoLive (my editor of choice) and I preview a page in a browser, the php will not work until I put the sample page on a server somewhere.
I'll have to check out that RapidWeaver site when I get a chance. For Macs, eh???

Thanks Beachy and meadowmufn.
I thought that could be the problem, but wasn't sure. Yes, Beachy, the preview is on your own computer.
The site I've been trying out on Rapidweaver is an old, existing site, and I can't really upload a totally new page or two that I do on Rapidweaver to test the PHP, so I'll have to do a page or 2 for a new site and see how that works once its on a server.
They should add this to their manual, or does everyone who uses PHP take this as a given?
Rapidweaver does look pretty good, is easy to use, cheap to buy (at the start, but they charge for a lot of the add-ons and updates), and they boast of good support, but you can't access that with the demo - you have to buy in first. I'll ask this question right after I make the purchase.

You can get PHP installed on your Mac
Or you can install PHP on a Windows machine. PHP pages would then work on your local machine

I just got my first new RapidWeaver site live, and the Golden Can PHP works fine.
Thanks for all the help and insight.
