AFAIK if you make someone Global Mod on an SMF board, that person automatically has moderator rights everywhere. So you don't have to check the mod boxes for every seperate forum. The same goes for admins, by the way.

This will save a lot of space on the index, seeing that the moderator list under each forum will disappear (and none of the rights change anyway). That list is only useful if you wish to make moderators for only specific forums - only useful on large boards or boards with language sections.

So basically if I'm correct, Michaela will also have mod rights @ the Scripting Languages sections even though she's not listed there. If I'm wrong... well ignore this. Embarrassed

I came here through the wild Frihost forums (my profile) upon seeing guitarcrazy's signature. And I'm wondering... why not move your forum to your frihost space? No ads there!

So anyway, I'm a chemistry student from the Netherlands, I've a midterm tomorrow and I'm postponing preparations. I like simple layouts and do more application programming than web scripting. But it's still interesting.

See you around!

P.S. what's with the static "Welcome To Our Newest Member: 'Michaela'" thing up there?  Cry

This Post Will Hold Many Tutorials. Pleast Stand By.

It's Recemended To read this post before you begin this tutorial: http://geeksrus.smfforfree3.com/index.php/topic,4.0.html


Install PHP

What do You Need?
This tutorial will not explain how to install PHP, MySQL, or Apache Server.

If your server supports PHP - you don't need to do anything! You do not need to compile anything or install any extra tools  - just create some .php files in your web directory - and the server will parse them for you. Most web hosts offer PHP support.

However, if your server does not support PHP, you must install PHP. Below is a link to a good tutorial from PHP.net on how to install PHP5:


Download PHP
Download PHP for free here: http://www.php.net/downloads.php

Download MySQL Database
Download MySQL for free here: http://www.mysql.com/downloads/index.html

Download Apache Server
Download Apache for free here: http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi

Basic PHP Syntax

A PHP scripting block always starts with <?php and ends with ?>. A PHP scripting block can be placed anywhere in the document.

On servers with shorthand support enabled you can start a scripting block with <? and end with ?>.

However, for maximum compatibility, we recommend that you use the standard form (<?php) rather than the shorthand form.


A PHP file normally contains HTML tags, just like an HTML file, and some PHP scripting code.

Below, we have an example of a simple PHP script which sends the text "Hello World" to the browser:

echo "Hello World";

Each code line in PHP must end with a semicolon. The semicolon is a separator and is used to distinguish one set of instructions from another.

There are two basic statements to output text with PHP: echo and print. In the example above we have used the echo statement to output the text "Hello World".

Comments in PHP

In PHP, we use // to make a single-line comment or /* and */ to make a large comment block.

<body><?php//This is a comment/*
This is
a comment

hey Michaela! thanks for the idea.  right now we're not set on a name....(i guess we should move our convo to a topic so you all can see it)  so yeah, thanks for the url, definitely! Wink If you'd like to help in any other way (ie. coding whatever)  just tell us and thx for the help!  right now we don't even have a basic layout for the future site though.

But....... if you do want to start scripting....(am i right in saying that i remember you know php?)
you could start with a simple comment box script that can easily be installed on any page of the future site. if your interested in this, tell us, and we can give you more details.  thx a ton! Smiley
