I wish to start a php-based gaming fansite that has:
- searchable database of items, materials, etc.
- displaying results in sortable/searchable tables (jQuery datatables)
- user profile creation and management
- VB forum that links profiles with website profile (maybe shares login and cookie?)
I need advice on where and how to start.
Should I start with a PHP framework, or just use a User Login Library, and do the rest of the PHP from scratch?
