byron2k12 Posted September 19, 2012 Share Posted September 19, 2012 I have a few websites but have only a small amount of PHP knowledge but currently studying it. I'm mostly involved in e-commerce but lend a hand to people here and there who want very basic websites for personal uses. So take for example: 1. Making an e-commerce website for a client. There are so many platforms and shopping carts out there that they almost come ready made like this! Steps: Wordpress - WPcommerce plugin, drag-and-drop your website widgets, some messing around in settings... and bang website up and running. 2. Making a blog. Steps: Wordpress, Theme, Written Content, Done. In effect that is it, you never get to see the PHP files even, so what i am trying to ask is if i devote the next few months to studying PHP will it pay off, will i become 10 times better at helping people with website design or is the fact that so many things are coming out now to make designing easy that PHP knowledge isn't really much of a necessity? Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
