Dreamweaver CS5 Search to include .tpl files

21 January 2015 - 02:38 PM

I have searched high and low to find out how to get DW5 to include .tpl files in search.  I have of course added .tpl file so it's opened by DW.  

Maybe someone else is using DW5 and has figured a way to include .tpl files in search.

Note: I have checked cloaking and .tpl is not ignored.


happy day, el

[TIP] Using Free Modules | Themes

18 January 2015 - 11:50 PM

Use at your own risk any Modules and Themes in this section 


Make sure to do full back ups of your files and database before installing, this is true regardless of where you obtain modules/themes here or elsewhere.  back up back up back up



  • Read each topic of a module theme you are interested in to ensure developer support and that there are not 'significant' issues.
  • If the developer is not responsive or there are more issues than thank you posts, then you are advised not to use the free module or theme.
  • If you find a module or theme
    • 1) is not being supported by developer and/or
    • 2) creates significant issues for you or other community members

Then report this  PrestaShop Community Manger and your community moderators to review and take appropriate action.  (how to report?  Go to original post, at the bottom right hand corner of that post, click report).  





With new forum we still have 'free' module section. Time to address this eyesore.

I've used a load of different cms's.


Not one has a section of free modules as exists here on PrestaShop.


I'd estimate that 95% of complete junk but who can really tell.


I suggest the following:


1. allow developers to submit free modules to addon's.  I spent a couple hours trying to get through the process only to find out not 'everyone can' set price to 0.00.

2. delete the free module section.


what do people do when they first install?  go looking for a module, preferably free, and chances of it working?  Not very good.


Burn the free modules section to the ground!  It's honestly embarrassing and hurts so many new PrestaShop managers and probably has resulted in a good number of people to abandon PrestaShop.
