How to edit php file



  • I downloaded Notepad++ because it claimed to be a WYSIWYG editor which could edit PHP files, but I cant see how to get started.

    I am working on my TNG family history website, and it has links to dummy php files which will produce the display pages in the browser.

    So I want to edit the dummy file to put in my text and perhaps change text styles etc. I’m not a programmer and I certainly know very little about .PHP language, so naturally I was hoping to use a WYSIWYG interface, just like I’m typing this now.
    I can open notepad++ and I can open a saved copy of the PHP file but all I see is a screen full of code.
    How do I get started?

    This definitely is not the case unless you saw this from some sort of plugin for it (but I don’t know any that does this type of thing). To run PHP you need a PHP server to execute it and spit out the HTML.
