I want to develop a system for my department where students can login, edit-profile, view profiles, and write testimonials..

Pretty much like myspace or friendster or hi5, but with very limited features (no journal, no bulletin board..and etc)..

My question is..is there any tutorial or open source code for this?
I can develop it myself..but it'll take lotsa time to debug and everything...

it should be faily simple to set up if you have any experience in php/mysql. and if you don't, then this would be a great project to really get your feet wet.

I would start with just two tables.
(1) for the users
+ userID | userName | password | fName | lName | eMail | etc...+

(2) for profiles
+ userID | aboutMeData | otherData | anotherField | colorScheme | etc...+

then just build a few PHP pages.
(a) a log in page.
(b) a page for users to update their profile fields
© a profile template, that is populated based on profile data for a given user

Hey there,

Try this out: <a href="http://www.tufat.com.../script39.htm"> osDate</a>
I suspect the dating part is all templating and with some minor work you could remove that part of the program.  Best part about it is that it says it is easy to install.  Just a web interface, and some web server access required (like a FTP client).
