Hi I run a comedy website and have been looking to build my own CMS for months, after a similar time looking for someone reliable to build it I got told, 'why don't you do it yourself' and thought why not.
I guess I am asking, can it be done? Or should i leave this to the professionals?
A day and a half into it and i'm still understandably ropey on even the basics of a php system so i am looking for hints and tips, whats the best way to go about a DIY website. I got the book PHP and MYSQL by Larry Ullman (2003 version) which seems to be ok, but i am worried that the php he is teaching me is no longer supported. Am I right?
Other than that i am looking to start at the very basics. Get a form field sorted to put news articles into, once that is done look to the future.
ANy help advice and humourus tips would be gratefully recieved.
