As some of you have noticed, the PHP Newbie forum has disappeared. In an effort to streamline the forums and provide the fastest response and best experience, we've combined the 2 main PHP boards.

We've also created a new READ-ONLY boards for the members where we have posted numerous questions that are asked here all the time. We'll be adding to this and editing it over time. If you have a question and think it's come up before, PLEASE check there first!

We're also working to add more features and make the site a little faster and more user-friendly. Stay tuned for more updates and thanks for being part of a great community!

Hey phpfreak, isn't it a cache system for PHP?
Best alternative for Zend's I guess :D

Now ober, I don't think people will care to read that up before posting...

so maybe just maybe it will lower the "omg i get this blah error" questions down from 100 to 80. something is better than nothing.

i do suggest renaming the forum to something more catching, like "YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED HERE!" or "QUICK ANSWERS TO QUICK QUESTIONS" or something. I think " FAQ/Code Snippet Repository" is great for serious people, but if they were serious, they'd look at the existing stickies anyways. you need something that appeals to the script kiddies.
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

Thanks phpfreak!

poirot, thanks for the comment, but Crayon_Violent makes a good point. Something is better than nothing.

And Crayon_Violent, that's not a bad idea. I will talk that over with the other mods. Thanks!

Haven't been here in a while. Great idea to merge the forums, I was always looking for the forum with the most active users before so that my question would get answered sooner ;)

I also like the new [a href=\"http://www.phpfreaks.com/forums/index.php?showforum=43\" target=\"_blank\"]Regex within PHP[/a] section.

Helps us organize things better :)

As a new user, and new to programming, I would suggest (not criticize) that maybe the forum where FAQ's are could have a different color.  I went back and looked and saw it at the top, but it blends in with the rest, and since I was looking for PHP, it didn't catch my eye.  If it was there in RED or another bright color, it would stand out, and I would have seen it and used it. 

Greate Site, I love it, and hope to be able to give back to it, once I know what I am doing, as right now I am receiving and unable to give.

Thanks,

Ken
