Php: Main - Discussion Thread 2006-07-18 13:28:39

Hey Everyone,

You can find PHP: Main right here.

This thread will be used for all discussion having to do with PHP: Main. The only thing you should NOT post in here related to PHP: Main is links to your tutorials.

Let the discussion begin!

Php: Main is really evolving

Yeah, it's really doing pretty well.

I'm going to keep trying to think of promotion ideas. I encourage everyone else to also. But REASONABLE ideas. For instance, I'd like to see PHP: Main get a shoutout on the front page, but lets be realistic, that's not going to happen. So reasonable promotions.

You cannot salt a md5 encryption.

On another note:

The start of a true OOP tutorial. Tell me what you think. There is not much there yet in the way of learngng keywords yet, but I am getting there. It takes time. Tell me what you think about is so far.

*Note* Allow pastebin a good 5 min or more to load, it has been slow lately for some reason.

As I said in the other thread, I like it a lot. I think you explain everything very well.

One thing I'd really like to see in it is just a list of some examples of when OOP is appropriate, as I don't feel it always is.

Thanks. I try to make sure of that for the readers sake. If I think the user could get confused that they could not find their way out of it, I will re-write the section.

One thing I'd really like to see in it is just a list of some examples of when OOP is appropriate, as I don't feel it always is.

I will add that at the end of the tutorial. You aoe right though, there are times when it is not appriopate to use it.

If the Programming forum gets a sticky PHP: Main pretty much covers it all. Except some rules and such, but PHP: Main, C: Main and all the others cover complete listings of the posted tutorials. :)
So it's actually quite easy to get our sticky right now.

I may be able to write a mysqli one, as most people here have not likley touched the mysqli extension. Don't count on it though. I am busy at this time.

Creating lines, morphing text, changing the font, etc.

I can get started with something like that.

What GamesCool means to say is, so discussion of tutorial ideas an such can go here, and not take up room on the PHP: main pages, that are reserved for tutorials. With this we will get the full 30 tutorials per page, instead og maybe 5-7.
