    How to Paginate Data with PHP200x200
    32 shares
    I can remember years ago when I first began coding in PHP and MySQL, how excited I was the first time I got information from a database to show up in a web browser. For someone who had little database and programming knowledge, seeing those table rows show up onscreen based on the code I wrote (okay so I copied an example from a book -- let's not split hairs) gave me a triumphant high. I may not have fully understood all the magic at work back then, but that first success spurred me on to bigger and better projects.Read More…

    Are You Making These 10 PHP Mistakes?Preview
    5 shares
    One of the best things about PHP is that it's a great language to just "dive into", thanks to its wide-ranging popularity. Anyone with the ability to hit "Search" on Google can quickly create a program. However, this also lends to a major criticism of PHP: it's almost too easy to find and reproduce bad code. Here are 10 PHP mistakes that any programmer, regardless of skill level, might make at any given time. Some of the mistakes are very basic, but trip up even the best PHP programmer. Other mistakes are hard to spot (even with strict error reporting). But all of these mistakes have one thing in common: They're easy to avoid.

Aside from the actual links themselves, which give people an idea of the subjects that your site covers, they can also show how popular the different subjects are. Another great thing about tag-clouds is that they can be used to describe the frequency of anything; you can link to articles, blog posts, images, video, or anything else that you have in abundance on your site.
