Basically, as I'm typing this I'm using what I want to have. A user interface with formatting options to upload into MySQL and then show in a website. If I don't have it I have to type html tags in all over the place, and that just won't do.


I'm planning on making a website from scratch. I've made websites before with mySQL and php, but there were plenty of problems with the code since we pretty much hardcoded the text into the MySQL strings. So it is probably much easier to find something that does that job for you, which you can implement into a new-thread/news-thingie.

As a php-newb, theres prolly some good name for this and tons of it around, but i'm in the dark here :crazed:

It does what you need. I'm sure you can "acquire" it somehow. Up to 80% off for students. :crazed:

Hrm, that looks more like the entire package. Ive got no big problems with writing the Html, Css or Php(well maybe a little of the Php but its "type and forget", so once i get it working i don't have to worry)

Basically, i need a text to html converter. something like what I'm using RIGHT NOW :crazed:

The main problem is that i have no clue what the latin/professional name for it would be. If i did i would prolly have googled it and found it.

Then again, I guess forum replies have its own formatting that is interpreted later on, with all the []-tags going around. I wonder if that gets converted as you upload it to the database or when it gets converted by Php back into html...

So you're looking for a Content Management System (CMS)?
Once installed you can add content and pages on-site without modifying the source markup or uploading files. Basically all of them come with some kind of BBCode to support formatting which is converted to HTML once output on the site.

That sounds more like what I'm looking for i guess. Been reading up a bit in my php-books, and I've come upon some integrated functions in php, but they arent 100% done.

nl2br() is the name of the integrated one, it apparently doesnt handle markup which already has html code in it, so they got another script in it made from scratch. what annoys me about this book is that there's no cd with the code on, and that code there is hell on two wheels to copy faithfully by eye :p

thats prolly also one of the reasons i've never got very motivated by php and the likes. writing all that code mumbled together with html. its like speaking in english and thinking swahili at the same time or something :xcahik_:
