Relax, there’s a (really simple) fix!

- Click OK (as in who cares, just work, darn-it)
- Yell at computer when error does a lather, rinse, repeat with every attempt to do anything in DW.

What is this confounded Dreamweaver 3 error about Translators, asp and htm (oh, my!) you ask?
Error Explanation For Techies: Something blah blah translators not loading, asp htm error, blah, blah… (we figure you already understand the error and just came here looking for the solution.)
For Laypeople: Dreamweaver is not working. U mad.
You Can Fix This Without an IT Guy of Your Own
I put our newest IT guy, fresh out of college and in-the-know to the task. He did all the right things – repair, deinstall, reinstall – checked forums and found other IT guys talking about the exact same problem. Tried other solutions offered by other people. Nothing was working – including my IT guy who spent a couple hours trying to resolve the problem.
Now, I am not CompTIA certified. I could not network anything that involved cables. I have never held an iPad in my hands nor long to, and have never had lengthy discussions about the ethics of hackintosh. I am “old” school and in some ways, still think “old school.” But in this case, that was exactly all that was needed: Someone who knew enough to recognize that there was a problem, but not enough to over think the solution.
When I found the Dreamweaver blah blah translator blah blah asp.net htm error was still appearing this morning I did what someone who is not certified in IT stuff would do: I went to the Dreamweaver site and searched for patches. Not only did I find one addressing my exact problem, I clicked “download” all by myself and fixed the problem in less than a minute. (My IT guy will be so impressed!)
The moral here is simple: sometimes to solve a problem you have to look outside the box. But sometimes, the solution is right there in front of you and not as complicated as one might think.
Why is that lesson important to attorneys with websites?
Trust your gut when a marketing company is trying to oversell you on services to get your website to rank. The bottom line is think simple solutions and old school first – is the site well structured? The content sound and meaningful (or boiler plate junk written for search engines)? Is the SEO up to Google’s high standards? Adding video, books, and fancy features will not get your site ranked higher.
Before looking for new marketing strategies to increase traffic – make sure Google already digs your site first. I will repeat: adding more stuff to a poorly done website will not make it a good website.

Dreamweaver MX extension fix for source code formatting issue
Dreamweaver MX 6.1 fails to format code correctly if the preference for indentation has been turned off. This extension installs a command that runs invisibly each time you start Dreamweaver. If the Dreamweaver version is 6.1 and you have disabled indentation then a special registry key is set to revert to an older version of Dreamweaver’s code reformatter. This works around the aforementioned bug.
