I might make a PHP: Tutorial later. :-)

Cool. I hope you do decide to make one.

If you do it within a Newgrounds topic, you can't edit posts. Afro-Ninja informed me that moderators cannot edit posts, so it wouldn't be possible to update a list like that. If they make a sticky it can just link to PHP: Main.

I am talking about a that it's in the sticky, where it's updateable. So one or a moderator can edit the list of new tutorials, so it's all listed easy for new users.

He basically means it'll be like the rules sticky. Or maybe even like the new to flash stick in the flash forums. It gives a list of tutorials and stuff. That way it'd be way easier to learn. I think that'd be a good idea. I'm going to try and make up a tutorial some time tonight. Just something basic once again. Gotta start little.

OK, that sounds good. I'm not sure how we can get that done, but it would be pretty cool.

Great! Your last tutorial about the percentages was very good. It doesn't matter if the tutorial is basic, we just want to keep on adding any kind of tutorial.

This is looking pretty good. I got a few tutorials in mind, including Paypal and PHP, WHM and PHP, and maybe PHP GTK basics(Yes, PHP supports GTK) if I get it installed on my computer and actually look into it. I have had a bitch of a time with it. So, nobody take those ones.

I'm thinking of making a tutorial about Database Abstraction Layers. Pretty useful when you want to publish code.

I'm looking to learn how to set up a system that allows me to create a page on my site that will take a template page that has the basic layout of the page (with the menu and background images and ads) and add a flash toon to the base template page.

I know a little about PHP and MySQL but this is just a very daunting task for me.

I would need to set up a database to keep track of the uploaded toons on my site and would love to set up a gallery system that would make it easy to keep the toons in alphabetical order when they get old. And perhaps another system that would sort them by dates.

Setting up the upload has already been covered but the gallery system and making the database save info on the flash would be very helpful and having an admin page that is secure would be great.

I know this isn't to complex from what I have learned but I am not a code minded person. If I had a skeleton to work off of I could implement more. But I am not wanting to use PHPNUKE or anything along those lines.

If someone could help me out and make a tutorial about how to set something like this up and explain how it works I would appriciate it.

Perhaps call it Content Management.

Anyway thank you for reading this.
Jack.

I will :)

Ehm, one little question:
Do I have to give explanetion for every single line or can I just have some code blocks and explain them?

Oh yeah, for the RSS, I'm not using any of PHP's XML functions ;) I'm just writing some DB info to a file :)
