Lasso/WYSIWYG editing

Recommended Posts

Once upon a time, long long ago my firm did a whole slew of FMP/Lasso sites. Back then we used FMP4, Lasso, and GoLive.

The great part about that combo was that in GoLive in WYSIWYG mode you could see the Lasso tags (actions, includes, etc. etc.) as 'bricks' in GoLive. This allowed our web designers, with some basic Lasso code training, to easily design their pages in WYSIWYG mode and not worry about messing up the Lasso Code. You could even drag and drop includes around a page, or indeed from page to page.

Now I use primarily Dreamweaver, but cannot for the life of me preview Lasso pages in WYSIWYG mode. I can include .las pages to open up, but they're all in code only. this is great for 90% of HTML editing, but it's a pain when you're attempting to judge the aesthetics of your efforts without uploading each time.

Does anyone know how to get Dreamweaver to view .las pages in WYSIWYG?

Many thanks.

There is Lasso Studio from Blueworld for Dreamwear 3-4. I have tried to use it twice but its complete crap (though Lasso sponsered web sites say its great). I havn't even got it to work on a basic level. As well, it installs another few hundred files into the dreamweaver folder and its implossible to uninstall.

If your using a Mac its even worse, since the Mac versions of Dreamwear and buggy and realy slow - it is even more so after you install it.

What I do with Lasso is to use the HTML way, that way DM doesn't re-write it and it doesn't confuse the web designers too much.
