View Full Version : Need Simple PHP Testimonials Script

09-15-2010, 07:40 AM

I need a simple PHP testimonials script. It can either be a PHP/MySQL or a PHP script that writes to a PHP file & pulls the data, I don't care.

Can someone quickly write one for me?

I want it to be able to display x amount of testimonials on a page and creates pages based on the max x limit to display and links to them. (Previous 1, 2, 3, Next).

I also want a code that will display x amount of testimonial RANDOMLY that chooses x amount to display via a simple PHP code.

I would like to add categories which would be a nice drop-down menu basically so that I can add services to the testimonial script & then choose what parts of the site to display testimonials for the service (based on category).

I would also like a separate PHP code script that would be a form where users can add their own testimonial to the database.

Email (Optional):


I'd like it to display as:


Obviously I'd guess that the email would be a separate table too so I could collect them & make a mailing list someday from te database.

Can anyone do this? Seems simple enough for some crazy PHP expert to whip up real quick and post it via reply. :)

Still doesn't belong here... this is for help learning/figuring out code. If you can't pay, but it in the lowest budget section and mention that.

We're not just going to write a bunch of code from scratch for you. Heck, the project you've listed can net a decent amount of cash from a paying client.

I do get a bit annoyed at people assuming a code piece is "simple enough" when they don't even understand the complexity of what they want. If its so simple, learn PHP and put it together. And even if it is simple, that doesn't mean it can be done quickly.

I agree in total with Keleth,

So I figured I would post some links that will cover the basics of what it sounds like you are trying to accomplish.

First is:
http://www.w3schools.com/PHP/php_mysql_insert.asp (which describes how to insert data into a mysql database)

http://www.phpeasystep.com/mysql/9.html ( which shows how to display multiple columns and rows of a database and even have the choice to let users update them or not.)

If you don't know php, this looks to be a good project to start learning! :thumbsup:

I'll move this to the request a quote forum for now.
The guys are right, while we are certainly here in the PHP forum to assist with problems run into with PHP coding, we are not here to write this code from scratch. Doing so is a project, and thus it should be expected that we get paid for such work regardless of the size.
Testimonials are often used by sites which offer paid services or products. This would indicate that you are wanting to use a free script in order to help generate revenue. This doesn't seem like a fair trade off to me if this is the case.
