1. This is a follow up on my previous posting regarding previewing
PHP/SSI directly from Tools. In trying to follow the instructions you
gave, I failed on the first attempt and I think that is partly the cause
for a lengthy and messed up Projects panel.
To give some background, I have a SSD for booting and a large HD for
data. So the 'Local Folders' first list C:\ and E:\ and if expanded,
all the folders and files that exist on those two drives. The icon for
all this is 'orange', which I am or was hoping has some meaning.
Immediately following is 'Network Folder' with a purple icon. Then a
second line below is 'Create Virtual Folders', icon green. Within are
the folder contained in the xampp\htdocs folder -- BUT --The php files
opened from this list do not provide the correct path for executing the
At the bottom of the Projects panel is another 'Local Folder' which
is indeed the path to xampp\htdocs. All the folder/file icons in this
group are orange.
Q1 - Now with that lengthy background, can I safely remove that which is
discussed in paragraph 3 above? I have noticed that if I right-click
and select Remove on an orange folder or file it is gone, deleted from
the drive. I had a similar question weeks ago, and the remove did not
remove the files. Maybe contained in a virtual folder?
Q2 - The Project panel lists every folder and file on the drive when the
view is expanded for that drive. There are some folders/files that will
just never be a part of an HTML document. Is there a way to reduce this
listing without deletion from the drive?
Q3 - If the answer to Q1 is No, is perhaps the easiest was to 'reset the
Projects panel' to "out of the box" configuration, a total removal and
re-install of Tools?
Hope this has not been too much to figure out what I am asking.
