    I found a website that I liked and wanted to change the content from that ipsum lorem stuff. Anyway, I downloaded the sites design and opened it in dreamweaver cs3 and all I see is yellow small boxes that say PHP on them. I see no conetent at all. Could someone point me in the right direction if you would be so kind.

    I am not a programmer, so sorry I cant help.. I also faces similiar situations.. and I click on those php yellow boxes, then change the code behind it... You need your dreamweaver working in split view for it... Just click on any yellow box, then you can see in the code view box, the contents of the php box is displayed... Try to play with it...

    Another thingy, just open the php file in wordpad and copy all, then put it in frontpage's html view window, then switch back to normal view... I think you can edit somethings there... I also did this...

    All best...

    Well first of all you need to have the PHP source code, then you need to install PHP either locally or on a server, then you edit the Lorem Ipsum and you should be able to see it, PHP files will not display correctly in dreamweaver. To install PHP on your local machine install XAMPP which you can find here hxxp://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html
