Newbee here, crossing over from osCommerce

Just a quick question. I work on a Mac and use spotlight search to search within html/php files quite often.

Anyone know how to get it to look within custom extensions like .tpl?

Many thanks!!

Thanks,

I've been using Dreamweaver. I guess we could always duplicate the template folder and rename all them files .php, whilst getting to grips with where everything is.

no u dont need to... i use fetch 5.5 as my ftp software and when you right click on the .tpl file you can open with then select dreamweaver.. when you save any changes it auto uploads the saved file to the server ;) easy as that! :)

I meant so you can index the files with spotlight:)

Not the ones you are editing, just a duplicate, so you can easily find definitions etc
