In my next project, id like to move onto a more complex website. Keep in mind none of my website have ever gone public.. lol... but they are fun and they help me learn what im looking to learn.
my next concept is going to require a login/register aspect as well as other database read/writes for the various features id like to play with.
An amazingly well done version of what ill be attempting to play with would be http://www.solomid.net/ , Obviosly thats of a professional level im not gonna strive for just yet but alot of there little features are something id really like to play with. Messing with the twitch.tv API for listing streams that are online... comments for logged in users under the streams.. etc. Pages available to the public that certain registered users can control the settings for... etc
Does PHP sound like my next logical step towards a project like this or is there a better fit?
And if it is... for a newbie to PHP would one recomend me building from scratch? or using a framework like PHPNuke or CakePHP or something?
