I have always used Dreamweaver to edit my php/html files, it helps me as it tells me if there are any erros in my code and it even sometimes auto fills in code for me... A good example is using the html code for image embedding:
Code: Select all
<img src="http://somedomain.com/image.png" />
I think the above is correct code. Dreamweaver auto ads the "/>" to the end of the embedding code for me. Handy.

Hasent happened to me just yet. I am sure that the issues I have are errors in my code, but most of the time, I just cannot seem to spot them!
Lumpy Burgertushie wrote:not sure if that is your problem here but you can test by using a good text editor to redo whatever changes you did to the files and make sure it saves them in utf8 w/o BOM and try again.
That's how it saves, it does so by adding the code to the original file and not uploading a new file when I make edits... I think.

I know, and I do resort to that if it doesn't work after a few attempts.

That I noticed.
