Starting my new job as a web specialist for the BYU Law School this week. The getting started project is as below... super stoked. Create a page using php, mysql and html where users can login or sign up and fill in forms about themselves (first name, last name, age, email address). Provide a spot for them to upload a document of type pdf, reject other types of uploads. Also, create a field that uses CKeditor to get a quick "user blurb" or description of themselves. After they are logged in, have a page in which all users are listed and linked to their profiles which will appear in a Colorbox when clicked upon. Be sure to style everything using CSS. Things you will need to know to do this:
- How to create a form and use php post variables
- How to upload and check uploaded documents
- Session variables in php
- How to create and use a correctly structured MYSQL database
- How to use Colorbox
- How to use CKeditor
- How to do CSS styling
Tip: We highly recommeded thoroughly completing Lynda.com's PHP with MySQL Essential Training course to assist in preparing for the training exercise.
Dec 2011 update: See my mini content management system - still a work in progress.
