De-bugging - Dreamwever Live View V Code Pen

Hi from no more sunshine York UK :smile:

The above link (No longer using photobucket ) I hope causes no problems for anyone to open, its been done via Google drive, but please let me know if there are any issues.

Any way I have a question about which product do you trust regarding debugging. For example dreamweaver live view shows me footer not sticking to the bottom of the page but codepen renders a footer where i want:

I suspect Codepen is the authority here but would prefer to hear any members views :smile:
(I’m using Dreamwever not because I’m using templates etc its just the easiest fro me as an ftp client, ive tried others but Dreamweaver suits me)

I need to know if my footer is sticky or its floating half way up the page if that makes sense :slight_smile:

Thanks in advance,

Never EVER use Dreamweaver live view. That’s based on a really old Opera rendering engine. Do not ever look there again. We have a few members which seemingly ignore this advice and continually show us issues they have in Dreamweaver. Every time, we tell them to stop looking there but they just don’t understand. Please view it in a real browser.

Codepen is the authority because it actually renders the code in a BROWSER.

I actually can’t find where your footer is on that page? What’s your footer look like?

Is there a reason why you don’t just upload images directly here? It would be much simpler all round, surely. Use the upload symbol from the edit toolbar, or just drag and drop the image.

Hi Ryan,

Thank you for clarifying this for me, I know Dreamwever us a crock of sh@t in many ways. Ok well regarding the footer its the orange 4 blocks illustrated here:

Thanks again for the live view insight cant believe just how bad it is!

Thanks TechnoBear, Yes from now on this is the way!

Thank you :slight_smile:

Hi, David. As you’ve already heard, Dreamweaver is not a real browser, and most certainly not modern. We can’t change Dreamweaver. We can only code for real browsers. How many of your clients use Dreamweaver to roam the web?

The footer is at the bottom.

No? Really? How novel!

(Sorry, I couldn’t resist. )


Just me :wink: Only joking, yep thanks again fro the clarification, I will one day stop using dreamweaver but for now I’ll stick with it but only to manage the files and posting them.

Well he did ask for us to tell him :slight_smile: .

Thank you Ryan for the re assurance its where i want it to be :slight_smile:

David, are you unable to open that file in your browser? Chrome, Firefox, etc?

I don’t understand the situation.
