Hello Daniweb community
firstly i would like to thank you for reading this
So i am working on a server for a friend of mine, and i am fairly new to PHP, the server is at ambience.selfip.org
site is going fairly good so far, i went through a few ideas, no flashy content yet, its a work in progress.
but i have the changelog, seen on the site, and there are a few other people that need access to it, and rather than edit it all myself, i would like to create a form, and use php to add content to the database, which i can then call upon to show the data....
so i can make the form to add it to the database, that much is easy, but i want the page that shows the php based changelog to retain colors for each type of change made, i thaught about making different forms and different sections in the changelog page for each type, and different database tables. to get the different colors, but i would like them to be in the order that we made them, and i cannot find a way to do this.
and the other thing i would like to do is add a timestamp with the date.
so that when it shows the data... its like
3/9/09 3:45 pm New server made by Ryan
or something like that... i can make the form which will do this, i just dont know the php variables for it, for instance $date or something like that...
any help on any subject would be well appreciated, and one more thing...
when i make the form, i can make a drop down box for the colors, blue red green black, and i can use those in the color.... i think im getting an idea of how to do it, would still like help :P
and yes, i like doing things in the most complicated of ways. i know :(
