Dreamweaver not displaying includes in design view on a localhost

Hello there,

I’ve created a PHP driven website. I’ve formatted my laptop and using Windows 7, Dreamweaver CS4 and XAMPP.

The problem I’ve got is that Dreamweaver isn’t displaying includes in Dreamweaver Design View. However, localhost is displays fine. I need to see the website in Design View in Dreamweaver so I can change CSS and Text etc.

Here are the settings I’ve got.

In DW CS4 under advanced: site view

Local View tab

Local site folder: C:\xampp\htdocs\

Local site images: C:\xampp\htdocs\images

HTTP Address: http://localhost

Remote Info Tab

Remote Folder: C:\xampp\htdocs\

Testing Server Tab

Testing server folder: C:\xampp\htdocs\

Any help would be great. Is there any other settings in Dreamweaver?

Many thanks

Is there anywhere to enter a URL prefix? (on CS3 it’s on the testing server tab) where you should enter http://localhost/

And just spotted that you have set up your remote site as XAMPP - this is not necessary, if you are not uploading to a www then there is no point setting a remote address, it is all handled by your testing server

Hi Mick,

Thanks for your help.
