Downloaded PhpStorm today, to try to use it for work on a Wordpress plugin which is already up and running. The resulting site is deployed on my local machine. Using Windows XP Pro.
If I now declare a Default Content folder (which is my own plugin folder, within wp-content\plugins), two bad things happen:
- the indented list under External Library vanishes
- the Wordpress environment is longer available, which means that when I open my main PHP plugin module I get a raft of parsing errors.
What I want to have is a project where my own plugin files (which sit, as they must, within the overall Wordpress framework) are available for editing, and where they are interpreted correctly in relation to the Wordpress environment.
I'm presumably doing (or not doing) something really dumb, but I can't see it. Any help gratefully received ...
