themes & inspiration:


Hello folks! It looks like most of you are getting familiar with our friends – php and mysql – how awesome! For homework:

  1. Get your previous work done by next week. Please post a link to the functional php page and a link to a text file so I can see it working and look at your code. Email me with questions or ask your classmates.
  2. Get cracking on creating a custom WordPress theme. You have 2 weeks to for this project, so the sooner you start the better! Start with the tutorial: and email me if you get stuck. We can work and trouble shooting in class next week so be sure to get as much done as possible. Start thinking about what you want the theme to look like – you can do sketches, mockups, look at precedents for inspiration.
  3. Have fun!

Example .txt file

Homework: Write a PHP script that accesses information from a database using a while or for loop, puts the information into an array, and outputs it to a web page. You can use the database you created in the first assignment. You must make the information and the page formatting somehow personal, so it is clear you did it yourself.

Recommended: Download and install MAMP (mac) or WAMP (windows) to setup a local server environment in the matter of seconds. This will free you of the need to upload your file to the server every time you need test your script.
