but I'm working on a website and one aspect is a blog or message board or the like.. and I guess that is my issue.. I'm trying to find code for it.. but
I dont know the term I think for what I want..
so what I want is where I put a topic at the top.. and users who are logged
in can just put one two line comments on the topic..
very simple form where they type in comment on the question and submit..
then everyone can see all the comments from all the other users.. kinda like
a mass IM ... but is that a blog or a message board or what.. not sure the
term I should be searching for.. I found some blog code.. but its too many options.. and I found some message board stuff but it was less but still too much.. so if anyone knows the term if what I need ?? and maybe a site that has some sample code to yank ?
Depending on what you want, it sounds closer to a blog than an actual forum type board.
I recommend wordpress - http://www.wordpress.org it's simple and fairly easy to work with, been around for years and has a huge user base following.
oh I had I first looked at PHP 3 weeks ago.. and I have written like 20 pages of it for this website I'm working on.. most if it is taking snipits from here and there and redoing to suit my needs... I was just looking for some base code for user login etc.. to then hack apart..
