    Brad!
    Also a member there, excellent tutorials from beginner to advance level

    Also if beginning W3Schools has a pretty good online intro series of tutorials, sadly not including some of the more modern developments in phpland.

    Re: Interesting PHP Article

    Guys,

    So generally what is PHP used for? I see that it is good for working with databases but what else do you use it for?

    Cheers,

    Ben

    @KD = That's probably because the W3C doesn't control PHP... only the (X)HTML standards. The maintenance of PHP belongs to a different organization. W3Schools is where I go when I want the latest help on HTML ... if I'm looking for PHP help I go to php.net...

    @benderman - it's good for any kind of dynamic server side processing... like these forums... I use it to run a radio station, I've used it for ecommerce sites, basically anything where you need/want to do logic on the server, then simply serve up html to the client browser.

    W3Schools isn't associated with the W3C. It's also notoriously inaccurate.
