I want to echo WordPress posts over to certain areas of my Dreamweaver php pages I design. Will I be able to use css styles as I have in the past to define headings, paragraphs, lists, etc. as I have in the past with the older extensions?

How are you planning to do that? Just connect to your WP database and display posts on the page?

Thats right, I create a category and private post in Wordpress and then in Dreamweaver using the old Server and Bindings plugin I echo the content of the post into a div I created on my DW page. Using css I style the content of the post based on the Wordpress headings I assigned to each sections of text. Here is an example of the type of site I create-

The content of the collapsible panels are echos of Wordpress posts. I use css to style the content within Dreamweaver.

This type of design allows my clients to go to the Wordpress dashboard and edit the content of the posts when they wish to. It makes it particularly handy for restuarants to change their menus and daily specials.

The problem is the old DW plugins are generating php which is becoming deprecated in the newer versions of php. I hope you can point me in the right directions with your Database Connector product.

You may ask why not just modify WP templates? I find it easier to design in DW than mess around with WP.

Yes, with the database connector, you can connect to your database, create repeat regions, show the data on the page and style it however you wish using CSS.
