    Unanswered: How to go about my website

    hey all.

    i'm a regular in the simpsons community online and ive made websites before using simple php includes and minor shit like that.

    anyway, i've got a character site in process and i dont want to mess around with it being all html with just php includes everywhere.

    http://blockoland.com/moleman

    anyway, i want this site to be more like http://www.simpsoncrazy.com/ralph which is all php/mySQL DB stuff as far as i know.

    how would i go about converting what i've got into a PHP/mySQL DB which could be similar to the Ralph one and that i could update without changing pages etc...

    any help will be appreciated.

    You're just looking for the "blog" element? That's not to rough... There's a lot of pre-made blog stuffs you can use, otherwise it's not to hard to code. You have to get your head around how php/mysql/html works in general before you can do anything though... I'd bust through a couple tutorials. Blogs are probably the best and easiest project to learn php/MySQL.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.

    Same basic concept... The way your desired page was layed out was the same logic behind a blog, except instead of random mumblings it pulls images and links to video etc.

    I would still say learn how to do the blog thing, then you can fairly easily adapt such a script to pull links to images, or images from the database if that's your thing. There's a bunch of ways to do the nitty-gritty stuff, but the basic concept is kind of blog'ish.
