View Full Version : I Need A Bit of Help Accomplishing This Idea.

06-23-2007, 07:24 AM
Well, recently, I launched my site boredom-support.com (http://www.boredom-support.com).

I want to start adding in various games, videos, and download similar to a database.

For instance, you open up the games index. (Helps if you look at the site layout)

The middle column (the wide one) will hold all the stuff.

You will see top played games (as in hits or rating)
You will see categories and a search. When you go into a catgeory, you can order by submission date, submitter, hits, etc.
You will also see means for uploading a game to add to the archive which would detect the proper format (.swf), create a new page with the game in it, and add it to the search, etc.

I have all the necessities such as PHP, SQL, etc.

I just have no idea how to go about coding this.

Help appreciated.

Well, break the big job down into smaller tasks such as retrieving stuff from a DB, or working with an array, etc. Then, look for tutorials (tizag.com is a great PHP/MySQL tutorial source, and w3schools.com is decent too). If you get stuck on something, have a look at the PHP manual: php.net/manual, or post your question here!

We're always happy to answer questions!

Im reading the tutorial.
Thanks for the link. W3Schools is a bit tough to understand on the first readthrough.

Do you want to do the work yourself or hire a web developer?

Id rather not spend much money. Id rather find a pre-existing script(s) that could accomplish the job and be put into my template.

Hiring a developer is just way out of my budget unless they want to do the work for free xD.

is the site meant to be sooo dark? I am using FF2 and can barely make out the text - use white text on dark bg or vice versa.

The graphic at the top looks like a ring on a string shoved between someone's butt cheeks! :eek:

Either that or I have a dirty mind :(
