CSS Forum

Submitted by AppCreator on Thu, 03/13/2003 - 23:00

At CSS Creator I have just set up a CSS Forum with the hope of building a CSS community, which can get help and give advice on all things CSS related. Nearly all sites use CSS as it has many benefits for web developers. Along with the benefits of CSS, browsers with their differing support for various features can provide a headache or two. The CSS Forum should help bring web developers together to discuss solutions for CSS problems.

Webstats update

Submitted by AppCreator on Thu, 01/30/2003 - 23:00

The webstats page has been updated again, screen resolution has been added. Looks like I had better update my site as there are some high resolution screens coming this way. The resolution stats are collected via javascript then passed to php via a hidden form. Stats are only collected the first visit to the site and only if you visit another page. One thing I found interesting is the low number of 800 * 600 screens, they used to be the most popular by far.

Zend have a Developers Zone which gives easier access to tutorials and the code gallery.

Matt Wade has written an article on
Regular Expressions in PHP. Regular Expressions are a useful tool for matching a range of characters in a string. They are used a lot for things like checking submitted form data such as email addresses. JavaScript and many other programming languages also have the ability to handle Regular Expressions.

PHP:MySql Table Manager

Submitted by AppCreator on Sun, 10/20/2002 - 00:00

The Menu of the PHP:MySql Table Manager has been updated. A button to take you to the tables of the current database was added and the Table Manager Start button now takes you to a listing of available databases. Also a permissions error when trying to create a database has been fixed.

Another thing I've been playing with over the last couple of weeks is a CSS Generator, there's still more refining to do but if your interested in having a look be my guest.

PHP:MySql Table Manager

Once again the PHP:MySql Table Manager has been updated.
This update allows you to specify which database or databases a user can access.

Thanks Henry for suggesting the change and prompting me to do something about it.

While I was busy coding I updated the Link System mainly to bring it into line with PHP version 4.1 and greater. The other changes are adding security to the admin page and create table page, which now require you to logon.

Thanks to Aaron for his suggestions on improving the Visitor Sniffer. I have made the suggested changes which improve the way the minor version of Netscape 6 is detected.

For those interested in MySql,
there are some great articles at DevShed on joins, optimization, normalization and administration just to name a few.
