Ok, I have a design layout all set up from within Fireworks, and I exported it out as a php file with multiple slices. What I need some help with is, I want to get rid of a slice in the middle, and have my webpages appear there instead. However, I'm not sure how to go about doing that. Any help would be appreciated!

Am I suposed to know how Fireworks exports PHP? How about some code here? I don't mind helping I just can't unless you provide some code.

I didn't think that would be important..I just somehow thought it would be helpful to know that it was done up in Fireworks. Basically, it exported the image slices and javascript for some menus I made...if you still need to see code for where the menus are targeted, I can do that

We need a whole lot more to work with.

It's still not clear what you are trying to do, how you are trying to do it, and what the problem is that you are having.

You need to start from the beginning, and progress slowly...

Hmmmmmmm this isn't really a PHP question so I'll probably move this over to the 2D graphics forum. That said I'll leave it here for the moment - the answer is on the tip of my mind. I'll dig through my notes but I think it has something to do with saving it as a template or something.

Basically, within the table that holds the slices, I want one of the cells to load my individual pages instead of the image slice. Would I have to do some more altering to the files and do up some frames instead? I'm sure its possible somehow to put a frame within a table cell, I just don't know how to. I'm trying to explain this as simple as possible but I'm probably not doing that great

Sorry not much there - some thoughts:

1. Try looking in the "HTML Setup" dialog box via the Options button (or soemthing similar).

2. It works with DW and can work in a DW type way so look for some equivalent to Modify >> Templates >> New Editable Region or something.

3. This really shows the limitations of trying to use a graphics package to produce server-side scripted web pages. I'd recommend getting a better grasp of PHP/(X)HTML and then using that knowledge to produce the web page using the Fireworks graphics as a guide.

I just completed a web site doing the same thing. I dont know if exporting the image as php was the best option, however i found the following article at macromedia very helpful.

I shows everything form drawing the shapes and slicing it up, then put it in dreamweaver and completing the page there enjoy. The link is

http://www.macromedia.com/devnet/mx/fireworks/articles/layout_editing.html

which shows how to make the interface on the page

What you want is php->include() - just put that with a filename in between into the td where the output's supposed to appear.

Dreamweaver MX can generate some PHP, JSP, CF, ASP.NET code. And it seems the CSS support have been highly improved. It's certainly useful for small web sites and rookie developpers, but an experienced developper having done some packages of functions/classes can still be faster and obviously work on bigger scale web sites/apps.
