  • I created my own forum software

    I just learned PHP a week ago and I made this. It's not done yet, though. (Don't worry it'll never be big enough to compete with vB )

        I too have worked on my own forum software, before being hired at Deluxe Portal, where I am now a developer.

        I didn't really have any books, but the php.net manual is a dream compared to some other things, that's where I picked up most of it.

        PHP has similar syntax to other languages though, so that made it a little easier.

        Not sure if that reply helped you any, but yeah: check out php.net.

          PHP and MySQL for Dynamic Websites by Larry Ullman.

          I also got bits and pieces from dealing (not stealing ) with vBulletin and php.net

                In the code, when it submits the query of information.. make sure it has an if statement or something.. checking to see if there is a subject and/or body... to what they are submitting

                  On register.php you made, use the same as that which cheats for the username, password, etc. Just change it for the post, subject...

                    For someone who started working on PHP a week ago that looks very copy n pasted

                      Why does it have to have been "copy n pasted". I know after 1 week of learning PHP that I could connect to db's, run queries, display the results from a query, etc.

                        Yeah, it doesn't have to be copy and pasted, PHP is a very easy language and once you have even the basic syntax its easy to create a basic forum like WDWInsider has got here.

                            I bought a book about a year ago.. Sams PHP and MySQL Web Development.. by Luke Welling I do believe.. good book


                            Has a lot of examples that if you play with can create things like forums, onlines stores..

                            So far looks good congrads on wanting to and learning php.. wonderful language!
