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.
