I notice many posts about HTML tutorials, but none about PHP sites (I'm rather fond of "PostNuke"). If anyone wants to try to learn this, I will be glad to help set it up. (I have a .txt file of "how to" set up a PostNuke site including MySQL setup.) If anyone would like to learn, Please let me know.

MSN: rockett@ownage-inc.us
Email: rockett.rulz@gmail.com

MSN is faster in getting ahold of me, but I do check my email normally everyday.

At your service,

Rockett

P.S.--I will also read this forum...The people seem really nice. <Nudges lil_cat_luver :tazz: )

hmm, what is PostNuke exactly? I have absolutely no knowledge of php except a tiny bit of php includes, headers and footers.

I uploaded the tutorial to my website, it's Huge as far as a post goes. Rather than do it that way, it's in txt form on this link:

PostNuke How to!

It works in IE6 and Mozilla FireFox

Hope it helps someone out there!!

There is an example of a post nuke site under my sig.

Thanks,

Rockett

P.S.--Please let me know if this is helpful. If so, I will prolly continue my efforts with tutorials on how tho update the look of the site, change the settings, and maybe PNphpBB2....

I'm not trying to spam lol...but...

Imagine a site where you dont have to change an entire HTML page to update your website, but when something is outdated, you simply change a block setting with a simple point and click.

OR.....

If you want to change the entire look of your site, you simply upload a "Theme" to it, and change the setting to that theme.

Ahh...I see. It's a program of some sort, (like a blogging system) that you need to install on your server, am I right?
As for the theme function, technically you could do that with php includes can't you?

I thought that was very helpful. There doesn't seem to be a lot of people helping in this section of the forum, and you already know I'm clueless about php..lol

Well i just a beginner but it looks intresting/helpful. I have only done a forum or two post nuke, but I think I might try the site making. The How To guide looks good and it will be helpful (it's in english well all of them are but I can really read and understand that one. I dont have to read it couple of time to understand it!)

Thank you! this is helpful especially for a beginner!

You're very welcome! I wrote the about 3 months ago (ya, I'm holding out on everyone :) ), but I couldn't figure out where to post it to help people out. Well, now I've found some place :tazz:

Ok, I've done a "basic" tutorial of Postnuke setup. It will give a few pointers on how to set up your website after you have installed it. Look HERE for tutorial.

If you would like to look at Postnuke and take it for a "test drive" I have enabled an Admin account for all to use. Yes, everyone.

Here is the website: Rockett's page

Here is the login info: Login: TestAdmin Password: 123456

Keep in mind this is a basic install and has a few mods and a bunch of themes installed. You will be able to look around the admin panel. DO NOT post profanity/pornography/Illegal content on my website or I WILL end this. I'm trying to help all out, and showcase some of PHPs abilities.

If something happens to the website and you start getting a "Call to undefined function error, DON'T WORRY!! Please let me know what it was that you did. I may have a mod installed that isn't supposed to be in .750 but for an older version. Just let me know, and I will fix it. No big...there's nothing that you can do that will make me mad...As long as you follow my few simple rules :tazz:
Thanks,

Rockett

there's nothing that you can do that will make me mad...


The test site is taking forever to load in firefox! :tazz: And I mean forever...I opened it about 3 min ago and the progress bar (or whatever it's called) is only at about 2%. Does that make you mad?? Hopefully not... :)

I have no idea what my connection speed is. On my "local area connection" it says the speed is 100.0 Mbps, and that has abolutely zero meaning to me. Anyways, I just opened it right now, and it loaded in about 2 seconds...might've been a problem with your server.
