 Commonly Asked Questions

How do I install the PHP Reference?

  • Download the "PHP Reference" keyword help file. It's not necessary to manually extract the *.zip file, HTML-Kit will expand it to the proper folder during the installation.
  •  Install Keyword Help File
    Select "Install | Keyword Help File" from HTML-Kit's "Tools" menu. Point to the downloaded *.zip file and click "OK."
  • Download the CHM version of the PHP manual (the standard version), and save/rename the *.chm file as php_manual.chm.
  • Install the php_manual.chm file using the "Tools | Install | Help Content File" main menu option.
  • To test the installation: open a PHP file, place the cursor on a PHP function and press F1 to invoke the help window. If the help window displays a file not found error, make sure that the *.chm file has the correct name, and that it's installed as described above.

How do I use it?

 Lookup Keyword Help
Place the cursor on one of the keywords covered by it and press the F1 key. A context-sensitive help window will appear with the help content or any additional references.

How can the "PHP Reference" related help items be disabled?

Open the Preferences dialog using the "Edit | Preferences" main menu option and change to the "Help" tab. Uncheck the help file in question from the "Keyword help files" list.

How do I create or modify a keyword help reference?

Details on how to create keyword help files can be found in the support documents section.

Do I need the exact versions of software listed under the Requirements?

The versions listed are the minimum versions required by this plugin. For example, a plugin that requires HTML-Kit Build 290 will run on HTML-Kit Build 292 as well.

What's the best way to check which version of HTML-Kit I'm using?

The build number can be found on the "About" dialog, which is located on HTML-Kit's "Help" menu.

Is it possible to use non-English versions of the PHP manual with this plugin?

When using a non-English version of the help file, change the parameter "ItemPrefix=::/en/" in the HTML-Kit\Help\Keywords\phpchm.hkh file to reflect the language code. For example, when using the French version, change it to "ItemPrefix=::/fr/"
