PHP is so awesome, I am getting used to it already!

Here is my first script: http://mhtml.ithium.net
My very own shoutbox.

Also php.net is awesome thanks for the link, I got stuck so many times but it was easy to look up the syntax. :)

http://www.spoono.com has a shout box tutorial but it didn't work, so I had to learn myself. I recommend the page below as a guide to learning how to use mysql with php.

you're welcome. It indeed has a very good searchfunction (php.net)

shoutbox looks nice, but i'd clear the textboxes after submit.

Might suggest also to put newest replies at top.

Okey dokey spooks. :)..

Is there an equivelant of replace or regexp.replace in php? (should be).. What is it?

04-06-2003, 03:29 AM
Heh, php.net saves the day again! str_replace (I think).

Look for preg_replace(), if you want to use regular expressions.

Ahh, so that's what that is. :) I saw on the str_replace() page the comments were talking about how much faster str_replace() is.

But I figured out str_replace already! check out my new emoticons.. hehe :)


Also the message goes back to the original text when you submit, and that is validated against so you can't just enter that in.

Looks great! I think that you should use a textarea for the messages though, there isnt enought room to write.

Well, in a few minutes you won't be allowed to enter more than say 30 characters. It's only supposed to be a small message thingy.

I will add a bigger guest book style on to my site in half an hour. :)
