Will PHP work on my site?
I just have a quick question about PHP and if can do what I need.
I make custom fortune cookies and sell them over the net. I want to add a function on my site that will allow my customers to type in what they want their message to say and be able to view it real time.
Will PHP work for this? If so, do you know of any tutoritals that can help me get started??

If you're not talking about simply echoing back the text they enter, but showing it in an image (i.e. in a fortune cookie), you could try using PHP's GD functions to include the text in a dynamically created image.
IMHO, not extremely complex to do, but not exactly newbie level either.
I suggest you try a few GD tutorials and then a few AJAX tutorials before you try merging the 2 together. AFAIK the PHP documentation has some simple examples of both which may be enough for you to "get it".Big Change Coming Soon - if you want your PMs save them now!
