Iposted this in the SQL section to no avail.

I've been working on an online image cropper and WYSIWYG text editor and trying to get a CMS built, but I fall at the relational database end of things.

The problem I'm having is relating content to different pages.
So I would like to have Home, About, and Portfolio pages in the main CMS page and have content relating to these pages show up when they are clicked on. Ideally the url, titles, etc for images would be in one table, the main pages in another etc so eveyting is separated. This is one thing I have learned to do.

Is there anyone out there who would share their PHP and SQL files so I can create a very simple CMS? Then I could possibly build on this.

Thanks in advance!

A CMS, even a simple one, is not a tiny project. I doubt you'll find many people willing to just "give" you their code. If you have specific problems, there are a lot of helpful people here to answer questions. But if you're looking for a whole bunch of scripts, I'd suggest either posting in the paid offers section, or going to a script site like hotscripts.com.

Thanks bcarl. I understand. Bit foolish of me but I had to try.

Actually, there isn't much to a CMS. They can be quite simple, and it's actually a good exercise in thinking to build one of your own. Sure, there are several ones available for free out there, but they include their bloated code (trying to support everything).
