dreamweaver is not recommended, its very messy
All MOD downloads should be back now - Sorry for that and serious lack of support! - If anyone wants to take over or help with any of my MODs the offer would be apreciated as I have little time for phpBB Modding recently!

Again very sorry for not supporting these MODs recently.

The newer versions of Dreamweaver apparently have better handling for php files - there's a setting your can check to stop it adding extra code

Here's a few I use :)

php Designer 2006
FlashFXP (FTP prog with a built in text editor - works great)
crimson editor

Thanks Ptirhiik, so far I've been only using notepad, good to know there's an enhanced version of notepad. :)

Try to keep duplicates and chatter out of this topic. Also link to the different tools. Thanks.
