Need to update our intranet. Just a site with 20 pages of pictures and links. Its all internal on a Server 2008r2 box. They used a old copy of dreamweaver to update it. With the new updates of pictures and formats showing links using dreamweaver is not working out. Just trying to get things centered and having the pics fill the background and so.

Is there an easy html software for this? One that is not going to require downloading plugin's and so on. Just straight html that can be uploaded to the server after creating. Simple easy!
Cannot find a way to implement WHERE ADDRESS IS NOT NULL, or even ADDRESS IS NULL.  Here is the recordset:

FROM xx###_180101
WHERE LASTNAME LIKE '%varLname%' OR  FIRSTNAME LIKE '%varFname%' OR MAIDENAME LIKE '%varMname%' OR CITY LIKE '%varCity%' OR ZIP LIKE '%varZip%' OR EMAIL LIKE '%varEmail%' OR YEAR LIKE '%varYear%' OR DECEASED LIKE '%varDeceased%' OR ALUMNI_ID  LIKE '%varAlmnID%'

Have tried several ways of including IS NOT NULL and IS NULL into this syntax, but all has failed.

Yes I know, DW MX is old.  But so is the server.  This is not the problem.
I have an editor that is putting in many  's in the source code it is creating.  I have been unable to stop the insertion of the strings but I do need them removed.

Here is an example
<tr><td align="left" style="color: #6e6f74; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; padding: 0px 0px 0px 10px; text-align: left;"><a href="" style="color: #5583c7;" target="_blank"><img alt="Nature's Sunshine" src="" style="border: 0px; display: block;" /></a></td><td align="right" style="color: #6e6f74; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; padding: 0px;" valign="middle">

I have an Ubuntu 16.04 LAMP server running Wordpress and vsftpd.
I am running Dreamweaver CS6 from my Windows 7 PC on the same LAN and have configured as follows:
Site Name: Wordpress
Local Site Folder: C:\Users\<myuser>\documents\wordpress
Server Name: Wordpress
Connect using FTP
FTP Address:
Username: wordpress
Password: <password>
Testing Server
Server Model: PHP MySQL

The development and testing server are one and the same.

I am attempting to edit a Wordpress theme so I have selected the theme's index.php from the remote server and I can successfully view the code. When I click "Live View" in Dreamweaver I get the message "This page may have Dynamically-related files that can only be discovered by the server" and I'm prompted to click "Discover". When I do this a message is returned "Dynamically-related files could not be resolved because of an internal server error. Retry"

I don't understand what this error means or how to get Live View to work.
I am using Dreamweaver cc 2018 with DMXzone extensions ServerConnect and Database Connection.  I have already downloaded the php driver and added the extensions, yet I still cannot connect to SQL server.  Can anybody help?  Thank you.
The LASTUPDATE field in my table is set to:

Type:                   Timestamp
Attributes:          on update CURRENT_TIMESTAMP

When  working directly in the table (via Cpanel), LASTUPDATE data is changed when another field, like COMMENTS for example, is updated.  So far so good.

However, when saving an update in a field on the PHP form, the changed data is updated in the table, but the LASTUPDATE field remains unchanged.

How can I get this to work?
Sorry I wasn't clear with my question:  where do I add the connection sqlsrv in Dreamweaver?  When I checked in extensions, there was nothing?  What tab do I go to?  Is my question making sense?

I'm using Dreamweaver CC.

I have a local server (on my PC) and I want to be able to publish files to a staging server and a live server.

From first glance, it seems that I can only "put" files from my local system to the remote server.

How can I set things up so I can choose to upload/publish/put a file(s) to either the testing/staging server or our live server?
Does the URL come from the networking file, or the personal file on Dreamweaver?  Does it matter?  Thanks in advance!

I have no issue connecting to Acquia using FileZilla using SFTP, but when I try the exact same .ppk file and credentials, it's saying that my username and password aren't correct. I'm looking for help on how I can connect to Acquia's server using Dreamweaver. Can you explain how to do this (since using the same credentials and ppk file that I use with FileZilla isn't working)??  Thanks, Gary
An editor is using Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017 to edit my video but does not know how to se the default image for the video.

When he text message me the video, I see it displayed the first frame of the video, ad it looks fine. When I copy the video and past eo my desktop, it's another story.

It shows the image which was the first frame on the video a week ago. I told him there was a way to set the default image frame of the MP4.

Is that true? Can't I specify how the MP4 looks when sitting on my desktop?

And if so, ow is this done with Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017?

I have a user who placed the output/exported files from robohelp to shared mapped folder.

The issue is that he would like to protect the folders and allow the users to run the webpage only.

I have tried to do some tinkering on the NTFS permission of the folder. But after denying read and execute permission.

the html stopped working. Any advise how we can protect the folder without hindering the access of the html webpages.

I know normally to solve this problem we can host it in IIS or FTP server. But i would an advise from anyone who has good expertise on this matter.

Thank you.
I would like to know if there is away to see how a website was made? I mean by Dreamweaver? or Wordpress etc?

I'm clearly new to designing sites with Adobe products. I've spent hours designing a great header in fireworks for exporting into dreamweaver with rollover nav bar etc but when I export it and then import it into dreamweaver, it imports it as a table so if I try to expand the size of it, it had huge gaps between each cell!!
I want to see if I can connect a Dreamweaver I have in my MAC computer to an external MS SQL Hosted elsewhere.
The application uses ODBC to connect to a MS SQL.
Are there ODBC connections for MAC ?  This way I could enter an external MS SQL DB.
I am having some trouble with a styling sheet on a site where whenever I enter into the site and go to site editor and edit a style.css sheet for example, then the styling sheet after saving has huge gaps in the code?
Has anyone experienced this?
I know you can format it in dreamweaver if necessary, but dreamweaver doesn't clean up the gaps in the comments (as far as I know?)
SO, has anyone else found this problem in wordpress.
Does editing style.css in wordpress editor add gaps to the code?

In DW2017 there is Preferences > Interface

I was able to tweak the color of the code, but I can't seem to find how to change the background color.
There is "Dark" which is black, and there is "Light" which is white and there doesn't seem to be a way to use grey for example.
Any ideas ?
I recently upgraded to DW 2017. Unfortunately the color of the code makes it impossible for me to distinguish my code correctly.
The colors used in CS6 or even 2015 were just fine.

How can I reset the color of the code to that color scheme (white background) etc. ?
When I'm saving my Dreamweaver I can't update my current template across all pages in the site due to this confusing error messages that appear every time I try to save the template file:

There is an error unexpected end of file.

Attached is the code for the file(s) - can anyone help? I've been looking at this for days, trying out different things to no avail:
I need to search and replace this phrase "" in CC Dreamweaver. after qs= those values will change.

this is it in context
<td align="right" style="color: #6e6f74; font-size: 14px; padding-bottom: 0; padding-left: 0; padding-right: 0; padding-top: 0;" valign="middle"><table border="0" cellpadding="0" <a href="" style="color: #5583c7;" target="_blank"><img alt="Nature's Sunshine" src="" style="border-width: 0; display: block;" /></a>cellspacing="0" style="border-spacing: 0; color: #6e6f74; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14px;">

Open in new window

Here is what I have tried

"[a-z0-9]+$" or "\?qs=(.+?)"

Please get me where I can search and replace the string like at the top of the question.
