    When will dreamweaver update to mysqli

    Hello dearest members, can any one tell me, when will dreamweaver designing and development software upgrade to include mysqli extension for PHP development.

    Does Dreamweaver support PDO? Is there any particular MySQL functionality you require that can't be provided by PDO?

    I would seriously consider dropping Dreamweaver and using a much better IDE. I used Dreamweaver for 6 years. Once I realized what was out there I could never go back. Check out PhpStorm. Totally worth it. It's not like Dreamweaver is free, anyway.

    All I know is if my IDE/editor didn't support the functions I wanted to use (especially as something as ubiquitous as MySQLi) I'd look elsewhere.

    +1 for PHPStorm, at least when it comes to actual coding (doesn't have any WYSIWYG stuff for web design, but I'm not a designer, so don't care ).

    On most files I can right click and open in browser then it gives me a list of installed browsers to open it in..... Good enough to WYSIWYG for me, plus chrome has live editing of css as long as I map it to the right location, a quick refresh shows me all the changes I saved.

    Also, +1 for PHPStorm from me, best IDE I've ever used I think.

    I've never used DW, so cannot really compare, but have always been under the impression that the only thing that made it stand out was its WYSIWYG abilities for web layout (with some complaining that it results in bad HTML?). But when it comes to writing PHP code, PHPStorm is difficult to beat, once you discover the features it has (and the in particular the ones that matter to you.)

    If you really want to master it: https://laracasts.com/series/how-to-...me-in-phpstorm (I believe these are still free tutorials)

    You can also take a look at this video. It's for IntelliJ, but pretty much everything applies to PhpStorm. The quality sucks, but the tips are nice.

    There is also this video which pertains directly to PhpStorm. Quality is only marginally better but it's watchable.

    And here I thought Dreamweaver was a 1970's rock ballad: www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-DmAh0dObI

    Ah, but do 1970s rock ballads support ELO?

    Great question ;-)

    PHP Code:
    <?php

    function Evil_Woman$name ) {

    echo 
    "<h2>$name --- this one's for you, babe</h2>";
    ?>

    <iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R20f-TPKjzc"></iframe>

    <?php
    }
