help with creating dynamic web page

Recommended Posts

Looking for direction of where to start. I need to build a web-based application where users can view and update a form, and once the form is submitted/saved, the webpage displays a list (or view) based on a field in the form. Also want to include optional 'views'. For example, a person fills out a form with their name and address. They save or submit the form which then bring the visitor back to a webpage displaying a list of names for example, which includes the name they have just submited, and this list can be viewed in various ways (e.g., by name, by address, etc. etc. ) I have no network but need to share information. Not sure where to start or what application I should be using. Any help or direction would be so very much appreciated.

Well, sounds like you need to learn a bit of PHP/MySQL for this. Here's where I would start:



http://www.phpvideotutorials.com/ (free videos, though the paid videos are well worth it too)

http://www.tizag.com/phpT/ and http://www.tizag.com/mysqlTutorial/


Once you have a basic understanding of PHP, perhaps take a look at this basic system I've put together (http://www.killersites.com/forums/topic/2282/basic-php-system-vieweditdeleteadd-records/). It'll show some of what you'll need to do for your application -- specifically, the parts about working with a database and viewing/adding/updating/deleting database records.
