iRite vs HTML Editor problem

i upgraded to html editor but didn't notice it only works with php

that was fine for the site i was working on at the time

but i also have lots of asp sites that use iRite and i have to edit one now

tried to uninstall html editor and then install iRite but even though that went smoothly, i cannot launch the iRite in dreamweaver

all i get is an error 'HTML Editor is only available for php sites'

HTML Editor is not even installed any more

please help

regards
ian

Ian,

It may be something simple as deleting Dreamweaver's cache file... DW will cache certain attributes for faster performance in the future. My guess is that this is the case with what your experiencing.

Best regards,

Brian

As SOJO Web suggested, try deleting the Dreamweaver cache file from the users configuration folder:

Yes but this isn't the real answer

I have asp sites with irite I want to move forward and know I will have to go with php but I have to be able to support the old sites. How do you propose I do this?

you cannot have them both installed side by side. to maintain your ASP sites with iRite, you need to uninstall HTML Editor, then install iRite. to go back to HTMLEditor, uninstall iRite, then install HTMLEditor.


It is possible to simply the process by maintaining multiple configuration folders:
In one configuration, you install iRite, then rename that configuration folder to Configration_iRite.

A new Configuration folder will be created, in this one you install HTML Editor.


When you need to use iRite, rename the configuration folder to configuratiuon_HTMLEditor, the rename Configration_iRite to Configuration and vice versa.

This is just unacceptable and it won't be just irite that this will be a problem with. I think you and Ray need to get your head round this and come up with a more realistic proposal.

You can see from the postings of the last few days that there are a lot of people affected by this.

Php?

PHP only?

Looks like it's back to Advanced HTML Editor 2.5, Pure Upload 3 and Smart Image Processor 2.5.

At least those guys don't try and force a particular server model down our throats.

Pity, iRite is rubbish and I was hoping for a more user friendly upgrade.

Jon,

thank you for your feedback.

I have logged a feature request in our bug base to have this looked into.

The multiple configuration folders solution I outlined previously is the most realistic solution I have to offer at this time

I know this won't be too much use to most people, but when I installed DW CS4, I kept CS3 on my machine also. I keep all of my sites current on both (export/import site settings). Each has its own config folder and extension manager.

On one I keep iRite and older extensions, on the other I keep HTML Editor and newer extensions.

HTML Editor is 1 product that supports the capabilities @pwiseman mentions takes 3 separate components to accomplish and without having to install any COM objects. The fact is PHP has some great advantages including image manipulation and file handling.

Neilo, that is great suggestion if people have both CS3 and CS4 available to them.
