ok...2 questions in 1:
1) how do you go about creating scripts...do you plan them first...use flowcharts or what... i want to create a 'portal system' and was wondering how you would go about it
2) does anyone know where i can find a good portal script that can use for a rollercoaster site
I use flowcharts and I try to reuse old code...... :)
PHPNuke is a portal system that can be found at http://phpnuke.org it is free but is kind of slow (even for PHP).....
1) Most of the work on my software projects is in planning and debugging. Very little is in the actual coding. Here's an example flowchart of mine: http://www.aboutpcs.com/misc/flowchart_small.jpg . I use WizFlow to do those, and it took about 2-4 hours to perfect.
2) I recommend PHPNuke before--I've heard great things about it.
