Start from scratch or Use scripts?
Posted 30 August 2006 - 11:05 PM
Its mainly for fun nothing serious, I want to get a website started with stuff like a blog, and a photo album.
Some people have told me to just register a domain and server space and they give you that stuff with the package, so thats one option. But seeing as I have a spare desktop with ubuntu installed it cant hurt to do it myself right?
So the question is, should I start from scratch, or are there popular blog scripts and photo-album scripts worth implementing instead? Im fairly new to PHP but I can program well enough to learn.

However, don't think that you couldn't learn something valuable by installing pre-made scripts. They would give you a perspective on what other people have done, and what you like and dislike about them can help you write a script that fits your needs perfectly.

Another downfall of bblog is its customization. Smarty looks cool and is probably easy to configure, but I was hoping for a more practical way. I wanted to just go in and change the css/php to show what i want but it involved more than that.
Is there a Blog/Gallery in one that has a little more control? BBlog seems more geared towards those who cant read code, let alone type it.
