    Social Network Help

    Hello everybody I am new to this site as well as being a relatively new developer. My question is how exactly do you allow people to have their own member page the same way that facebook or myspace does. I know how to create the php to foward the user to a member page but no idea how to give them their own page for customization. Any input at all would be GREATLY appreciated.

    Get familiar with databases. You would just store all their customizations in a database with, say, their unique member ID as the primary key. When someone clicks on their profile, you do a lookup based on their member ID, pull all the customizations, and push it into a profile template.

    It'll be more complex than that as you go, but that's the basic idea. Good luck.

    Yes, I would learn MySQL. Once you learn how databases work, you will begin to see how you can make the members login parameters take them to their web page!
