PHP Questions

Hello Folks,

I’m new to PHP (and to the Sitepoint Forums) and have a few questions I was hoping I could get answered! First off, let me introduce myself - I’ve been designing/editing websites for the past 8 months now. Recently I started work on a new website that required me to know PHP/MySQL (I already have a basic understanding in HTML/XHTML and JS). I’ve been reading the tutorials on W3Schools but am completely lost at this point. The website I’m working on is pretty simple, the users will fill out checkboxes and submit the info, then based on what they selected certain information will display on the webpage. I just don’t know if that would be done using the if…else function or if I would have to have the information in a database and call it in MySQL. I’d also like to add that the information displayed to users will be updated every week or so.

I know its a simple question but all this SQL PHP stuff has me confused :confused:


Welcome to PHP and the SitePoint Forums!

The simple answer is; you can do it either way, or a combination of the two ways!
