Is there a ready industry-strong project in PHP available?

I am a newbe PHP developer. I wonder if there exists a code-by-example thing, ie a ready project written in PHP that would help new developers to delve headfirst into development by industry standards based on a proven example. I know that appFuse offers such an opportunity for Java coders.
What I am really looking for is a ready industry-standard application based on Smarty and MySQL with clear comments inside. A photo gallery or a small presentation/news site, maybe. Something that will show how to build a good application from scratch and incorporate all the good practices.
Is there one you know of?

It do not use Smarty, and it is probably not very well-commented (depending on your experience), but you could take a look anyways.

I remember what Tim B. Lee told me many years ago when I worked under him, he said dot your i's and cross your t's, and never use shortcuts, just because a language gives you shortcuts does not mean you should use them, because readability is just as important as logical execution.
You should search at SourceForge.net, and find something you want to do, and then read through the code to get a understanding of what it is doing, but still don't ever believe it is following a standard, because coding logic is always based on ones ability and nothing more!
