I finally have a website...

Postby notthecheatr » Dec 14, 2007 20:15

Not very complicated, though. I haven't learned PHP yet, and I don't do a lot of fancy stuff with CSS or JS yet. Simple and nice, anyways.

Not a lot on there yet, but here it is:

There's a downloads section, where you can download the fbn00b tutorials in ZIP as well as a bit of code I wrote today that I've posted in Tips and Tricks.

Enjoy!

Your relative link is wrong on the home page:

PHP is easy to learn once you know FB. ;-)

Before you spend a whole lot of time learning custom PHP for the site, can I suggest Drupal as a solution? It's the content management system (and so much more) that I use for my personal site ( http://www.bywombats.com/blog/ryan ), my w.i.p. FB site ( http://tracker.freebasic.net ), and my day job (http://www.ubercart.org )... : )

You can find out more info at http://drupal.org.

Basically, using Drupal will let you login to the site and manage your content w/o monkeying around with a bunch of HTML/PHP files. And if you get the hankering to learn PHP, developing modules for Drupal is super nice. I develop an e-commerce suite for it at work.

The problem is I don't control the server, so I can't install anything extra AFAIK. Although I might be able to ask...

I would like to learn PHP anyways, since it's a popular webdev language and I'm planning to do programming for a living, so I'll probably learn it anyways.


@KW: Oops, it wasn't supposed to be a relative link :P Fixed.

You can install any script you want, as long as it's not abusive and you have a license for it. Ryan's site is actually on the same server as yours.

But if you'd rather write all the scripts yourself, I say go for it. You'll learn a lot more.

Really? Cool.

But yeah, I do think I should try to learn as much as possible. Webdev is something I've ignored for too long (maybe because it's too popular, everyone's doing it) - I gotta learn that too.

fwiw, I learned PHP in conjunction w/ Drupal and it's worked out great. Just being a straight PHP developer won't benefit you as much as knowing that in conjunction w/ a CMS (doesn't even have to be Drupal... lots of folks use Joomla and others). It just helps so much not having to roll your own solution for a lot of things and keep track of security and such.

Sit down w/ a book on PHP and Pro Drupal Development and you'll be well on your way to making your living. I bill $75/hr. and no one has thought twice about it... frankly, Drupal development is in high demand and should be for some time as it continues to grow into a solid web application platform.

See some high profile users (IBM, Sun, United Nations, Adobe, Warner Bros. Records, MTV, etc.) through Drupal's creator's (Dries' Butaert) personal site: http://buytaert.net/
