Now, I'm a PHP n00b for the most part lol... I can follow instructions on how to MOD a phpBB, but I want to make an actual PHP site and I cant find the tutorial or materials I need.
This is what I want to do:
I want to have a main site made out of PHP where the staff members can log in and edit content. My site is a videogame site and some of the staff members' jobs includes making new pages with game reviews for the main site. Since most of them dont know know HTML very well (if at all), I figured if I was able to make a site for them to log in, post the reviews in a form and as a result have it make a page to display the information as well as leave room for other members to leave comments and rate the game, that would be alot less of a hassle and provide much more interactivity.
I hope that wasnt confusing or too much to ask. Can anyone help?
If Mambo's a little too complicated (or hard to customize - horrible templating system) try Drupal (www.drupal.org). I've used both and personally prefer Drupal over Mambo for *most* circumstances. There are still few instances we've opted to use Mambo but they were few and far between.
Just in case it matters to you, there's almost no way to make Mambo output valid XHTML w/ out tables unless you hack the core Mambo code. They're supposedly working on a better templating system and trying to get a lot of the output out of the core code but as of now it hasn't been done.
