Hi Guys

this will probably sound a bit daft to you, but i have set up my site via the admin tool and everything is cool, but i have never worked with .php before.

 

How do i alter the main text on each of my pages ??? i presume i can't import pages in to frontpage to do it, as frontpage hates php.

 

so the pointers i need are these.

 

1) where are the files for say my index page so that i can write a short text on what my site is about ? and how do i add text to the 'about us' page ?

 

2) do i need an editor to be able to view and edit these pages and add text ?

 

can't seem to find any info on this matter,

 

please help a php noobie

 

cheers

Jason...

Use ant TEXT editor like Notepad or PFE32. Also, your Cpanel may have an editor that will allow you to edit files. Dreamweaver MX4 works OK for me.

You can use FP to edit php files (See Here) but you cannot display them with it.

 

The text for your various pages in the files by the same name in includes/languages/english/. So to change text for index.php, edit includes/lanugages/english/index.php.

 

Yes, you need some kind of editor. Don't use the file manager in admin since it will introduce errors. You can use FP although there are many free editors that work better (search for best editors).

And If you like to work with Front Page you can make the html page in Front Page copy all the ?code text? beneath and above <body>. Open your about_us.php file or condition.php (I use adobe go-live) and paste it into place
