Final Project Remarks

Just a few quick comments about my Final Project:

1) Tweaked it so that it looks a 'little' better.

Also, to recap from Saturday's presentation:
1) used PHP and MYSQL for pages: Actors, Actresses, Directors, Films AND individual Actor/Actress/Director pages (name, bio, video, etc.), login, join, comments, etc.
2) used Javascript for index page Slide Show
3) used JQuery for mouseover/mouseout on individual Actor/Actress/Director pages; and pulled info from MYSQL
4) index page is hard-coded (for now) for Spotlight review and YouTube video (I didn't have time to set up data base for "Spotlight Reviews"

Loved doing PHP and MYSQL! Actually quite 'addicted' to it!

Almost forgot to post this!

Final Project

Really had lots of fun working on this! Still lots to do, but included JavaScript (slide show), Jquery (mouseover, mouseout), PHP and mysql (lots of databases in here!). Not pretty yet, and still lots more work to do, but it's coming along nicely!

Will probably refine further, but here's what I'm thinking:

Blog Homework Week 9

Still tough for me, but I'm determined to get this. Slowly but surely. Got the login and registration to work (checking password and username, writing to database, and adding cookie to index page). So here's round 2, to be continued ...

Blog Homework (week 8)

Well, I'm getting there, slowly but surely. I think if I spend more time with this, I will eventually 'get' it. I still don't have everything functional though. My biggest issues are:

1) Can't seem to get anything to write into the MySQL database. Anything I type into the blank fields seem to go 'nowhere'. Had a similar problem last week when writing to a text file (but it turns out I didn't re-upload the text files) -- however this time I tried refreshing the MySQL site and that didn't solve the problem.
2) I finally got error messages to appear when someone doesn't enter their username and password -- however, now the error message comes up no matter what (even if they enter their username and password). This is the opposite version of the trouble I had last week!
3) I keep getting a foreach argument error on my index page. I'm not sure why because I literally cut and pasted the code from Amos' example.

Since the site isn't fully functional yet, I am posting my separate pages:

Login-in page
Register page
Create new blog post page
Edit blog post page
Index page

I would really love to get this blog up and running, so any insight/direction/help regarding any of the above would be greatly appreciated!!!
