    Hi guyz,

    I'm trying to implement a tips database such as the one on this page ' http://www.pdabuzz.com/Tips/ ' to my site. The implementation should be as foolproof as possible. It should also be preferably feature-rich.

    Implementation of the database can be through the use of CGI or whatever other methods possible. As I've mentioned, I'm hoping to look for a really simple solution.

    P.S One of the features the solution must have is the ability to moderate what the visitors type in as tips before publishing it automatically using the solution.

    Please help. Thanks!

    I would take to learning Kevin's article.

    And a simple way to moderate it would be this.

    Include a field called tips_status and when a tip is first entered set that field to 1. Then create an admin section where you can review the tip and if you want to publish it set that field to 2. Then on your public page the query simply includes "where tip_status = 2"
