Edit files off line??


Recommended Posts

Ive not found any good way to look at the files offline. (Im assuming you mean actually see how it will display on the screen)


You can edit the files using any editor, from Notepad to Dreamweaver. I myself use Dreamweaver 4 and find that it works well. Since all of the pages are compiled on the fly based on language though, its impossible to tell what it will look like until you upload it.


If you're serious about developing, I recommend a second test site or, if you can swing it, a second test server.

I'm assuming that you are running Windows since you cannot view your shop locally.


That being the case, I recommend phpTriad.


It installs Apache, MySQL, and php and is set to run under C:Apache


Simple simple install...and free.


Your localhost will be C:Apachehtdocs and will be accessed by http://localhost.


You'll need to go Start>>Programs>>phpTriad>>Start Apache then




If you are running XP, try Sokkit. I think it costs about $20.
