  • PHP?? (HTML preprocessor)

    I seem to recall a bit of discussion about PHP earlier - anybody using it??

    I'm just getting started - if you know anything that can keep me out of the weeds, please share

    Take care, Margaret

    This forum is all PHP, as is our Gallery, links database, and review section. More to come

      I thought it was! - you mean if I study hard, I'll be able to do something like this?

      Do you use MySQL or some other database??

      I've got my web site all set up with SSI's which makes it easy to maintain, but slow to load and still requires someone (me?) to update the pages. I'd like to make it so my son and his staff can maintain it themselves - I'm thinking PHP is the way to update content and that will leave me to push the pixels around to make it show up on the page.

      Take care, Margaret

        I couldn't do something like this by myself if I studied the rest of my life It's all written by someone else, then customized by me to look like they all belong together (sort of).

        PHP is designed to work with mySQL, and yes, this is all mySQL. This post is really just a field in a database that gets called when you view it and only then is the page actually generated.

          Thanks Doug, I thought it was probably mySQL.

          Give yourself credit, I've looked at some of the the content management applications that are available and installing them and getting them working is a daunting task.

          PHP code looks easy enough, I hope I can pull it off

            I'm probably the only person who didn't know this until now, but just in case I thought I'd share it.

            I usually keep both Netscape and IE running for those times when a page just doesn't load properly in one browser, I can switch to the other. Also if you're into web development, you...

            My web site - Tell me what you think
            by 1STLITE
            Well, after about three or four different layouts/menu styles, etc. I think I finally am satisfied with my web site. Other than adding content on these pages, and maybe adding a couple more pages, especially creating an info page (as it is I have my home page as the info also), I am pretty much done....

            Now I need your help. All constructive criticism welcomed. I have been working on this site, it seems like, forever. I haven't finished with all of the content but I have 8 pages ready and decided to go ahead and publish it.

            Go easy, it's my first time.

            Guess it would...
