SSI include files

Hello,

In the course of the free trial I thought I’d try editing an html page with an external CSS and SSI file. Discovered there is apparently no SSI file support.

This is very disappointing, as I was hoping to ditch my prior (very old) web editor. I have SSI header files and footer files on literally hundreds of html pages. They save me hours of work.

This is a dealbreaker for me. :frowning: I had been so looking forward to ditching the old editor.

I too used SSI quite a lot on my previous sites.

The nearest reference I could find in Pinegrow was Partials

You can find reference to it here, on the old documentation.

particuarly this collective search result
http://docsbeta.pinegrow.com/?s=partials

and the first one being

where right at the end of that you see,
2019-11-27_10-31-56

Its a bit convoluted, but is this any use to you?

N.B, I am afraid you will find no reference to partials in the current documentation.
ie
https://pinegrow.com/search?s=partials

Note: I’m sorry, but as we announced it at the time of the events, partials support was removed when version 4 was released.

Ah! so that’s why I struggled to find it later.
I forgot about this and have just been reminded!

Any suggestions on SSI and whether partials will make a return?

Live code view of SSI include files is essential to me, I have hundreds of HTML pages to manage. Even if I were to redesign and reimplement them, I would still need the live view of SSI files in the interim.

When giving Pinegrow a trial run I was even able to live without the built in site manager/ftp feature, as Filezilla does that well.

Price is not really the issue here either, I’m willing to pay a few hundred for one-time purchase of a whizbang editor with all the bells and whistles without having to buy a subscription / use cloud.

Going back to my old version of Dreamweaver. Extremely disappointed but grateful I still have my old alternative.

Have a nice day.
