Yeah, it may sound silly, but I started going deeper into web development and I just simply don't know where to start. I only created a webpage with framework but what if I don't wanna use one? Should I write all the code in 1 document? Should I create folders for database, views, css, js codes? Or should I create many files? How this all works?
I'm learning php right now. I'll use database, different users. I do this not just to create a webpage but to really learn so that I could offer my knowledge in a future. Today I wanted to start writing something more serious and thought.... I have no idea how to start. I can only work with codeigniter framework But frameworks is only one way to create a webpage. What are others..?
Well... I just started writing the code. Started with template file and then maybe create more files instead one huge, so that it would be easier to write and understand. I will learn how to do all this with practice. I'm so afraid of mistakes so that I can never start... So I just sat down and started instead of asking silly questions
That's the way to do it. The only real problem your gonna come across is The logic of your php script. logic = "the steps taken to accomplish your task". I use this style to create my sites:
1-Alpha. Create HTML Frame with .php extensions.
1-Omega. Style HTML Frame with CSS.
2. Create PHP logic frame work. (if applicable; to handle elements and data input)
4. Insert media (images, video).
The fourth step is the actual inserting of the media code. A place should be made for it in step 1. I use a script like
to handle my .swf files, deals with all browsers.
image manipulation = ifran view. batch, resizing, renaming, everything.
image creation = Photoshop or gimp.
video = flash(mx - 5.5) or apple or Win movie maker then convert.
(site)image handling = jquery (i'm not an expert but there are plenty of tutorials.)
Once you get use to dealing with and handling these then your pretty much ready to do what you want. I guess.
As for dealing with php. create a number list with steps to take to execute what you want done. Then find what ever phrase or code you need to do it. I'm starting in this area too. gets annoying sometime.
And most important remember to save all working script. You will need to re-use them.
