    If you were good enough to make an entire member login system using php then I don't think you'd have trouble doing something as simple as automatically sending emails at the end of registration. Unless of course you haven't really made a login system and you know nothing of php.

    Ok

    html is a very basic code (people will correct me and say it's markup language but who cares) that really only fetches images and text from a location and displays them on a web page. It has no flexibility and is very limited (most of it is just useless).
    php is a wonderful script that allows you to make "dynamic" web pages. html is a totally manual code but php can do really anything you want it to. I'm not a php guru and I really don't know much of the script itself but here is a link that can show you the basics of php. Have fun with it

    This will probably help you understand it a little better then my crummy definition. You can't usually get a free web host and practice php because you usually will have to buy a host. I got discouraged while learning the first time because I didn't know that, do a google search for a free webhost that allows php and other scripts to practice.

    May I see your site?

    Ok, I hope you have more luck with php then I did. I even bought a book and had trouble

    But you should also know that html is a horrible way of making a site. Tables are incredibly hard to control and most times wont do what you want it to. I suggest learning css. I learned how to make a css website in one day and it's much easier to use, so easy I code everything in notepad now :P.

    That's not true and doesn't even make sense; HTML is the only way that you CAN make a site.

    CSS is only used to control the appearance of your page's HTML. The idea is to separate layout (HTML) from appearance (CSS).

    PHP, what it does (among other things) is manipulate the HTML before it is sent to the browser. But it is still HTML that gets sent to the browser.

    As for tables, they aren't all that complex, and they do what you want them to as long as you want them to do what they are designed to - organize data. They are excellent at that.

    However, there are many reasons not to use tables to layout your page. For starters, a complex layout with tables is hard to acheive and requires many many lines of markup that could be avoided using proper layout techniques. This bumps up the page size, causing longer load times.

    If you want more reasons not to use tables to layout your pages, just do a search for 'layout tables' on this forum!

    PHP Tip: If you want to use short tags (<? or <?=$var) then make sure short_open_tag is set to "1". It really helps.

    Well that's what I meant with the tables. With css you don't use very much html at all though.

    That just depends on how big your page is - but yes, you avoid using lots of attributes on your HTML tags
