html editor site-settings connection problem

When I click the 'define' button next to the Connection field, the right (mysqli)connection shows, but this connection doesn't show in the list after clicking 'done' (or 'choose', I work with a dutch version). 'none' remains the only option. The alert 'please choose a connection' keeps popping up.

Dreamweaver can do this occasionally. You may need to close and re-open the interface, click the refresh button in the databases panel, close and open the page, or even restart Dreamweaver to get the connections to show.

Did that several times, without result. The problem seems to be the mysqli connection. I made an old fashioned mysql connection and that works fine. Then I changed in the kfm folder in the connection file the new mysql connection to the mysqli connection. Now it works. But why is this even necessary at all?

I didn't realize you were using a mySQLi connection. The HTML editor hasn't been updated to work with MySQLi, so that is why it doesn't show in the list.

Will the editor be updated in future or is it deprecated? Do I have to find another solution for future implementation? I use the editor quite often in cms for my customers.

We will be using a different file manager in the next release that won't have any database dependencies at all. The current html editor doesn't actually use the mysql connection directly. It just uses a mysql connection file to get the credentials. I think it uses mysqllite behind the scenes. You just have to create a mysql connection file for it to read the username, password, and database from.

Thanks for your feedback. Hopefully this update will be released soon. I'm sorry, but I encountered one more problem: in the file folder within the html editor the thumbs won't show (see attached file). This is the first time I ever had this problem. When I choose an image however, everything works fine. For over two hours I've been searching webassist folders and files to manage the problem, no luck. You see, I am not a developer, just a designer who knows a bit about code and implementing a custom cms.

I'd need FTP access and a URL to reproduce to debug this. It could be something as simple as an extra blank line in one of the files.
