I would like for Notepad++ to add the closing tag when I finish typing the open tag. I know there is a plugin to do this for XML but it doesn't work on my HTML files and I have yet to find one that does.
Try going into TextFX / TextFX Settings and check 'auto close XHTML tags'. This makes it work in plain HTML files too. You may need to install it if using a newer version of Notepad++
- Click Plugins > Plugin Manager > Show Plugin Manager
- On the "available" tab check the box by "TextFX Characters"
- Click Install
- Restart Notepad++
- Enable the auto-close XHTM features as described above.
