What Programs Do I Need?
« on: April 25, 2008, 04:10:04 AM »
When building websites, you will need at least one text editor, one FTP program for file transfers, and one graphic's program.

With SMF though, you can edit your template files without a text editor by going to:
Admin > Themes & Layout > Modify Themes > "theme that you want to modify".
... great care should be taken when using this method, be sure to back up your files before any edits!
