Noob question on website design

Postby OSX » Fri Dec 20, 2002 4:47 am

Hi all

OK, I'm a right php noob, but want to learn. Have basic working knowledge of MySQL and am happy using it via the command line or phpMyAdmin.

I don't know if this is a good idea but I'll try and explain it.

My website is
What I'd like to do is change it so that it's based upon php and MySQL.
My plan is to ssplit each webpage up into 4
Header, Navigation&Links, Search Feature and the Main Content.

I've done a google and checked out a few of the php devoted sites but can't find an answer.

Can this be done? If so is it good practice?
The idea behind it is to stoe all values in the DB and if for example I or someone else (with no html knowledge) wanted to add content then they could simply type it out in the format they wanted it displayed, add it to the DB and hey presto they have a correctly formatted web page.

So what do you think.
