Found this blog post concerning setting up the Cakephp view extension (.ctp) to use the same highlighting as (.php).
I didn’t find his solution that helpful, but one of the comments said to add this to my ‘.vimrc’ file in my home directory.
autocmd BufEnter *.ctp set syn=php
And since we are on the topic here is how my .vimrc is setup
set tabstop=2 set shiftwidth=2 set expandtab if has("autocmd") autocmd BufEnter *.ctp set syn=php endif syn on
