I have decided to test out another WordPress IDE – Visual Studio Code *(or should I do PHP Tools for Visual Studio first?) Step 1: Install the Visual Studio Code IDE from: https://code.visualstudio.com/ References: Autocomplete and snippetrs: https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=tungvn.wordpress-snippet Review with recommended plugins, etc: https://tommcfarlin.com/vs-code-wordpress/ https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/languages/php
Occasionally when working with Visual Studio on a local site, I have received an permission error when trying to run the application. I usually dig and dig before finding the solution, so I am going to save it here. Solution: Turn off NTLM authentication in Property Window.
