    Re Carey Burgess's posting - "It should be under the Commands menu in Dreamweaver 8."

     

    Where is it - I've just looked in my version of Dreamweaver 8 and while there are a good list of things in the dropdown menu from Commands, I can't see any reference to displaying external files.

     

    Am I being dumb (not for the first time!) or is it hidden away somewhere?

    You're probably running Dreamweaver 8.0 (in DW, click Help > About Dreamweaver to see which version you have).

     

    Display External Files is found in DW 8.0.2

     

    Download and install the 8.0.2 updater

    Thanks John, that was the answer, and I now have the option.

     

    This problem has been around for a while, and quite a few Dreamweaver 8 users have been asking about it; this is the first time I've seen any mention of that update3 in v 8.02, so I am VERY grateful to you.

    It doesn't happen with all external scripts.  Just a few well-known culprits like Facebook, Twitter, AddThis, etc...  whose scripts contain some form of browser detection.  Since DW Design View isn't a browser, it gets hung up by those scripts.
