How to view test site on local host?

Post by frank_s » Mon Oct 08, 2012 1:56 pm

I am trying to view in Top Style's internal browser a test web site and work with the test site using Top Style 5 editor.

The test site is on a local hard drive which i have set up using xampp.

To view in a browser I enter 127.0.0.1 and the title bar on the browser reads 127.0.0.1 in some cases the title bar reads http://127.0.0.1/home.php

The home.php file is located c:/xampp/htdocs/home.php

Thank you in advance to anyone responding.

You need to set up Preview Mappings: Options (F8) > Preview > Mappings.
