Putting It All Together

  • Lesson 28: Creating User Logins
  • Lesson 29: Turning the Case Study into a Content Management System
  • Lesson 30: Creating a Dynamic Menu
  • Lesson 31: Next Steps

In this section you take what you have learned and use it to add advanced features to your site. You learn how to create user logins so that you can decide who can do what on your site. You create a table that contains content pages that you can update through your site and then have them display on your website. And, finally, you learn how to make the menuing system dynamic so that you can update it through your site rather than hardcoding in the PHP programs. This enables people who are creating text content to also create a menu item to access that content.

The examples are simple so that the concepts are easy to see.
