Hi, I am trying to figure out how you guys at SitePoint.com manage the content. Did you guys put all the writings into the database and retrieve them when needed?
For my site, my content (reviews to be specific) is saved into HTML and I put the "include" code to include the HTML into my programs.
Can you tell me the most effective method of retrieving content with a lot of HTML properites?
SitePoint's content management system is similar to what is being created in the 10-part PHP/MySQL article. They use a combo of MySQL, PHP, and their own custom markup language. Soon they hope to migrate to XML.
As D3V said Sitepoint currently uses a MySQL/PHP system. If you have a lot of content, a databse is the only way to go. It saves alot of time and is very efficent(sp?).
