Syntaxhighlighting in .thtml files with PHPEclipse

I think I have already mentioned in an earlier post that I use PHPEclipse as my IDE. Up to now I had the problem that there was no syntaxhighlighting in .thtml files although I had associated the PHP editor with the .thtml filetype in the Eclipse preferences under “General/Editors/File Associations”. But I missed that I have to associate the .thtml filetype with the “PHP Source file” content type under “General/Content Types”… Anyway, I am happy to have syntaxhighlighting :)

    hi there

    a little [OT]

    since I have the same IDE I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to upload single files to an ftp server from within eclipse ?

    all I found was the ftp/webdav plugin which is imho … a pain …

    @thomas: sorry, I don’t know such a plug-in.

One Trackback/Pingback

  1. […] There is only 1 small thing I want to mention here, CakePHP uses the *.thtml for the Views. To enable syntax highlights for *.html correctly you might wanna checkout this post. […]
