static to dynamic

Postby tryn » Wed Jul 28, 2004 12:10 pm

You've gotten some great advice so far. One of the primary components of web design is to break things down and manage the elements individually.

I've built a site or two based off of the integration of MySQL, PHP, HTML, and CSS. I would reccomend that you look at CSS to control a lot of the elements of your website. I tend to do the major layout via CSS.

You can use the database to store things like image paths and such. A good example of this is the landing pages for newegg.com . When you first hit the site, the products displayed are dynamically generated. They change every time you refresh the page. It is the same for each category. I may not like their new look as much, but I have to say that they give a good visual example of a dynamic website.

I could recommend some books if you'd like.
