Snippets Exchange Help Topics

Installing Snippets Exchange Extensions

  1. Launch the Extension Manager. Command» Manage Extensions.

  2. Once the Extension Manager Appears, choose File» Install Extension.

  3. Browse to the downloaded Snippet (which should be in Dreamweaver/Downloaded Extensions/Snippets Exchange folder if you followed the recommendation made on the previous page).

  4. Once you have installed the extension, if you're using Massimo Foti's Classic Snippets Panel version 1.1 or greater you can click the Refresh List Icon Refresh List . Otherwise if you use Dreamweaver MX, you'll need to restart Dreamweaver if it is open in order to update its native Snippets panel. If you are using an earlier version than 1.1 of the Classic Snippets Panel, you will need to import the snippets from Configuration\Classic Snippets using the panel's import button.

See the Classic Snippets Panel Help Documentation for more information regarding the use of the Refresh List Icon and Import feature.

Managing Snippets Exchange Extensions

Once you have installed several Snippets Exchange Extensions you may notice that the Extension Manager is getting a little full. If you wish to clear these entries, be sure to follow the directions for the Snippets panel version you are using, Classic Snippets Panel or the native Dreamweaver MX Snippets panel.

Classic Snippets Panel Users Only!

  1. Export all Snippets to a safe location. See the Export Snippets section of the Help Documentation included with the Snippets Panel for more information.

  2. Open the Extension Manager.

  3. Click the Snippets Exchange Extension Entry.

    Remember: Snippets Exchange Extensions are always classified as Code Snippets and are named SMX followed by a 4 digit id and version number.
