I am trying to set up sublime text 2 with PHP, but I am having some trouble getting the snippets to work. I have loaded a PHP project and see that the syntax is correctly set to PHP. When I go to preferences -> browse -> packages >php , I can see a number of PHP snippets that I am unable to activate including $files $get ,$post. As far as I can tell, the tab trigger for these are '$'
but this does not generate any snippets being displayed, when I try it in a php file.
Can anyone give me advice on what to do next?
