    I've noticed a lot of site that have a lot of articles have use php. I'm just wondering where I could get this script. Adding new pages manually is getting extremely tedious. Thank you!

    "adding articles" is almost always special for every website. And it is very involved, the best thing I could recomend would to read Kevin Yank's article about building a databse driven site on webmasterbase.com. I read the article three weeks ago, and it opened my eyes, since then I have been devouring anything I can find on PHP, and php.net has gained my continual use. If you read that all the way through, you will not have much problems getting a PHP/MySQL content management system up and runing.

    I give that link out to at least 3 people a day (it's my first recommended stop for anyone who wants to learn PHP) - any chance you could register it it's own domain (www.kevinsphptutorial.com or something) as I'm fed up of trying to remember the number...

    A couple weeks ago I realized that I'd memorized the URL without really trying. Most people don't like to be given a link to a tutorial like that. I know I do, though.

    Hopefully now that we've done away with the query strings the URL is easier to type. We're working on some ideas for making it easier to link back to SitePoint articles from the forums; just give us time to sort out the details!

    Would something like http://articles.sitepoint.com/228 be out of the question? Of course that relies on the articles for all the different sitepoint sites having unique IDs (I'm not sure if this is the case).

    I don't mean that example as a permanent URL - just something that redirects instantly to the article in question.

    Skunk: Doing so would require them to likely setup a redirection for each article. What they have now is something like this:

    http://www.webmasterbase.com/article.php/228

    That is much easier on them - I believe they have just ONE script that can handle all redirections in that case, and is still search-engine (and non-geek) friendly.

    That is indeed the case... I'll point this thread out to the right people and we'll discuss it offline.

    Gotcha. I'm thinking even just http://sitepoint.com/228 could be doable... We'll give it some thought!

    Hehe - how about http://228.sitepoint.com/ for the ultimate in URLs-for-lazy-people

    Definitely possible, after all that's how the infamous http://insert.name.here.isgay.com/ site works

    http://sitepoint.com/228 should be doable on a global scale as per the method shown at the end of this thread:

    http://www.sitepointforums.com/showt...?threadid=5672

    I've got some other ideas, too....

    Ok, everyone! All praise Wayne Luke, who has implemented a new <article=articleid>text</article> tag in these forums (replace the angle brackets with square brackets).

    Check it out: My PHP article

    Woo!

    Lemme guess: you give Chicken a couple of Snickers bars, tell him I insulted his Mother Hen, and then give him a Cable Connection, an email client, and a lot of free time?

    I have no idea who Julio is, but I have a very strong feeling that I don't want to, either.
