    Very interesting edition...although I've been too busy to keep up with the past issues...I've read of skimmed through them all but need to sit down at some point and really LEARN them.

    I feel more comfortable reading on paper than on the screen. (Especially with my horrible 14" one) How many pages do you think that would be printed out?

    I'm not following Kevin's tutorial to make myself a content system, just to know more. But there are several snippets of code which I think I'll use just 'cause they're excellently written and quite useful.

    Keep 'em coming Kevin, and if you feel the need to go over 10, don't pause!!

    I think that it is wonderful what Kevin has done.

    These articles allow someone with very little understanding of databases or scripting languages to really build there own dynamic site.

    I know that he is doing it as part of Sitepoint's business, but it still has the feel of sharing information just for the sake of it, which is what the web is so great for!

    Thanks,

    Adam

    I printed out about 5 of the tutorials and I think, but don't quote me, it was around 25 pages.

    Printed in 10pt Verdana from the original MS Word file on Letter-size paper, the article is up to 77 pages now.

    Think I'll have it bound for myself when it's done. :-)

    Any chance of you sharing that nice MS Word file with the rest of us? I'm sure many people out there would like a copy they can print easily.

    Hey Kevin, I'm not kidding when I say this but you should really submit that to a magazine or even publish a book. Sure you might need to write a bit more but it would be popular as a book, seeing how many people are practically using the series as life-support.

    There are about 4 PHP books out there: Core PHP, Wrox PHP, Building PHP pages, and one more. But there aren't any Building a Database-driven Web site with PHP/MySQL, or at least none that I've heard of.

    I say go for it. You're an excellent writer, programmer, and graphic artist so this book could be a masterpiece.

    I saw a book called Essential PHP. It was about 200 pages and $40.00 (way too much in my opinion). I was looking for the Wrox PHP book but haven't found it at a local bookstore yet.

    Just do what I did, Wayne: get it from Amazon.com. $40 is a lot for a book...but Professional PHP Programming is worth it...900 pages rather than 200.

    I'll see what I can do about making the .doc file available for download once the series is complete.

    As for submitting it to a magazine or publishing it as a book, the copyright belongs to SitePoint.com (they're paying me to write it, after all). It'll be up to them to decide how to capitalize on it. The term "SitePoint Publishing" was bandied about in a recent chat I had with Matt, though. ;-)

    There is a printer-friendly version of the article available by clicking on the "Print This Article" link...

    We printed it out here in the office, and it came out to be 60 or so pages.

    I agree that this article is worthy of publishing, although maybe its current form is good enough for now.

    I find that working through examples is a wonderful way to get to understand the basics of things. You can always use a more authoritative manual later on when you need to learn specifics.

    As I said earlier...
