Hi, and thanks for the membership. I'm not completely new when it comes to PHP, MySQL and and programming. I have developed simple solutions that have had some simple features, but I have never really familiarized myself with PHP and MySQL. When it comes to HTML and CSS, I am probably stronger. Now I have come to the point where I want to develop a website that is more advanced than anything else I have tried before. I'm looking around the net but can not find the answers I want for help. That is why I ask you who are gurus.
The site I will create will eventually contain many different functions such as registration and login for members, creation and posting of articles, etc. The site will be developed in HTML, CSS, PHP and MySQL primarily.
I have seen a good number of web pages developed in PHP that use only one web page to retrieve all the content in the database, or as few pages as possible, I think. As a rule, only index.php is displayed, preferably with a question mark and an ID number after. It is usually and most often only the ID number that changes. I've read a bit about the subject, so I'm not completely blown away by it, but need a good deal of help to get started with this. I feel a little "lost". So let's say I'm completely blank.
I know there are ready-made CMS that are free to use. muh hum ... It's not interesting. I want to spend some time developing it myself. Make it work. Not to make money on it. It's to teach me PHP programming at a higher level than where I am today. Which is not terribly high.
1 - I want to learn this from a good tutorial, which is as simple as possible, but at the same time so advanced that it can help me with this.
2 - I would also appreciate to use you as oracles, teachers, course leaders, tutors and counselors. I do not know what is common to call a person in such a situation.
The pages I usually develop are put together as follows:
index.php with full setup with
<! doctype html>
I also used to develop some pages by putting together an index.php page using
<?php require_once("........") ?>
`<?php require_once("header.php") ?>
<?php require_once("mnu.php") ?>
<?php require_once("main.php") ?>
<?php require_once("footer.php") ?>`
Then I put together a page by calling in header.php, main.php and footer.php. As you may understand, I have played a little, but desperately need help to get where I want to go and get what I want.
The problem is that I do not find something that is simple enough for me to understand, but at the same time is advanced enough to meet my needs in an understandable way. Can you please help me find my ansversin the jungle of poorly explained tutorials?
