2. How do I use Dreamweaver MX with .tpl files?
You can edit .tpl files in wysiwyg mode by changing the following setting:

Open the following xml document in an editor: Macromedia/Dreamweaver MX/Configuration/DocumentTypes/MMDocumentTypes.xml
In the tag "documenttype id="HTML"... "(or php) add .tpl as an extension in winfileextension/macfilextension..
Open any .tpl file in Dreamveawer and you can edit them in the wysiwyg mode...
The style sheet links and other links that contain code don't work of course.

You can edit .log and .append files in code-view (w/o being prompted for an external editor) by:

Same as Step 1 above
In the tag "documenttype id="Text"... add "log,append" as extensions in winfileextension/macfilextension.
Run Dreamweaver. Go to Edit >> Preferences
Choose the File Types/Editors category the then click the left-hand plus button to add an extension
Type "log, append" then click "Ok"

Hi nizsmo:

Thanks for your reply.

Can we edit the .tpl files in the design mode as we edit the .html files in the design mode in dreamweaver.

>> Open any .tpl file in Dreamveawer and you can edit them in the wysiwyg mode...

yes, wysiwyg mode is what you are referring to as "design mode" in dreamweaver. :)
