Security Assist and CS4

Thread began 5/14/2009 3:30 pm by brett171768 | Last modified 5/14/2009 5:21 pm by brett171768 | 2018 views | 6 replies |

Security Assist and CS4

I've replicated this 3 times now....

But each time I install Security Assist in DW CS4, it deletes my formatting options in the Bindings Panel. For example, if I want to format the date for a date field, when I click to format the "Date/Time", I have no options available.

I reinstall DW CS4 and the formatting is back. I install Security Assist, they're gone.

Anybody seeing this?

Thanks.

The issue is that Extension Manager has a bug in it where the formats.xml file for each server model has an empty title attribute for each format entry. Remove the title=””, save the file and restart DW, and things should be good to go.

To find the file go to:

%appdata% (or your user application library folder)

then browse to the DW version you are using and continue to:

/Shared/ServerFormats/PHP_MySQL/Formats.xml
There will be a formats.xml file for each server model that will need to be updated (assuming that SecurityAssist adds the format to every server model.

Ray,

I'm using ASP VBscript and my folder structure doesn't match what you outline. I have:

adobe/adobe dreamweaver cs4/configuration/serverformats/php_mysql
adobe/adobe dreamweaver cs4/configuration/serverformats/asp_vbs

etc...

Either way, I can't find any reference to an empty title tag in any of the files withint the asp_vbs folder.

Thanks

you should find a file called Formats.xml in the asp_vbs folder.

Open up that file in notepad and you will see the error.

I'm sorry, I don't see an empty title="" tag.

I do see a title"

I tried removing that and it doesn't fix the problem.

Here is my current file:

formats.xml

Thanks

This is the original formats.xml file.... I think you opened the version in your program files.

open explorer and type: %appdata%

Then browse to the file in that location. I think you are probably just looking at the wrong file.

I found the correct file and made the changes.
