Using PHP in fanlistings?


 Share

Recommended Posts

man never did I think I would find my self on a forum asking for help. =_=; but then again, years back when we created ‘fanlistings’ we didn’t use php =_=;; cursed thing.

Recap of my experience with php: 0%

Today is the first day I ever considered tackling it...not thinking it would be as hard as some of the things I have had to learn on my own. That was a stupid opinion. I’m making a fan listing for an online gaming simulation community. And while looking for codes that would automatically submit applicants, approve, etc. Update member numbers so I didn’t keep having to go (767 + 52 =...you get the point XP ) I came across [a href=\"http://scripts.indisguise.org/\" target=\"_blank\"]http://scripts.indisguise.org/[/a]

Steps taken so far:
1. Downloaded Enthusiast 2
2. Uploaded Enthusiast 2 to my domain (JF-studios.com <—hosted by yahoo). Enthusiast 2 instructed me to create a new sub category on the main index (or at least that was my understanding) So it looks like this: [a href=\"http://www.JF-studios.com/backend\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.JF-studios.com/backend[/a]
3. I’m then instructed to open up [a href=\"http://jf-studios.com/backend/install.php\" target=\"_blank\"]http://jf-studios.com/backend/install.php[/a] where apparently I’m supposed to make changes in [a href=\"http://jf-studios.com/backend/config.inc.php\" target=\"_blank\"]http://jf-studios.com/backend/config.inc.php[/a] and for the most part it makes sense. But where it starts to throw me off is here in bold:

[i]Mostly it's just the stuff in bold. Tho I’m sure as soon as I get past that hurtle, I will be back here asking more questions on the rest of the stuff. Pretty much I got a month to sort this all out ><;[/i]

Moved to our 3rd party scripts forum - The PHP Newbie Help forum is for requesting help with custom scripts that you are developing yourself - Not for requesting help with 3rd party scripts.
