Will Theme-It work with PHP/HTML/CSS Pieces

Thread began 2/22/2010 4:36 pm by hafnerdesigns349591 | Last modified 2/24/2010 11:01 am by Ray Borduin | 1202 views | 3 replies |


Will Theme-It work with PHP/HTML/CSS Pieces

I have several websites where there is an index.php that calls for all the pieces to the web pages. In this index.php are variables for css, js, html, etc. The html pages ONLY have text, images, and other objects pertinent to that page. There are no links to external files to the html pages (w/ exception to javascripts related to individual pages).

Can Theme-It still work with pages laid out like this? The only way I can currently make certain that the pages work is to load all the pieces onto the server and view it with the browser.

I currently use Dw CS4, but I'm new to it, so this is all a learning process. I am still unsure how to use the template option with Dw. All my PHP/HTML/CSS sites were hard coded before Dw.

Thanks for your help.

I can't say for sure, but it appears theme it would probably not work. Theme it depends on being able to search through the page and find .css and color references. If they are included in code it may not work, but it really depends on the exact syntax and code you are using, so it could work as well.

Does Dreamweaver work to edit the pages? Does dreamweaver see the linked .css files? Chances are if Dreamweaver works then theme it will.

Actually, no... Dw does not connect the files.

I have an index.php which looks something like this:



if (! isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['content']) || ! $HTTP_GET_VARS['content']){

if ($content == "home"){
$page_title="The Story Connection - Dianne de Las Casas";

include ("collection.php");

include ("required_files/meta.html");
include ("required_files/header.html");
include ($main);
include ("required_files/newsletter_subs.html");
include ("scripts/analytics.js");
include ("required_files/footer.html");

And then the actual html which contains ONLY content with structure.

Most likely then Theme-it would not find the css files either. The only way to know for sure is to test it, but as a general rule of thumb, if DW doesn't work right for finding the css, then neither will theme-it.
