Just so you know, I'm a PHP beginner, so I won't understand complicated stuff or anything of the like. xP
I've started to make a part of my website (may I link to it, or should I just post the code) and I'm pretty happy with it. A user can paste or write a story into a text area, and then submit it. It shows the word count to them, and also adds it to a database, where, on a different page, people are able to view it, complete with their name and how many words the writing is.
However, I'm having a problem. I want to get a login script set up, so users are able to set stories to public/private, and also view all stories by them. They will also be able to have 'cash' for the stories that they post, based on the word count. Some features that I might try to implement would be editing/deleting stories, but I don't know if I will be able to implement that until I get a start on the actual code.
I have tried quite a few codes, some which are linked here.
However, even with a bit of editing, I haven't been able to get them to work. This isn't good. xP
If it helps, here is the sql table that I have.
-- phpMyAdmin SQL Dump -- version 22.214.171.124 -- http://www.phpmyadmin.net -- -- Host: localhost -- Generation Time: Nov 11, 2009 at 12:55 PM -- Server version: 5.0.81 -- PHP Version: 5.2.6 SET SQL_MODE="NO_AUTO_VALUE_ON_ZERO"; -- -- Database: `pixelpup_type` -- -- -------------------------------------------------------- -- -- Table structure for table `type_users` -- CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `type_users` ( `uid` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment, `username` varchar(20) default NULL, `password` varchar(100) default NULL, `email` varchar(60) default NULL, `usergroup` varchar(11) NOT NULL default '3', `cash` varchar(5) NOT NULL default '200', PRIMARY KEY (`uid`) ) ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 AUTO_INCREMENT=3 ; -- -- Dumping data for table `type_users` --
I'm struggling with integrating the login scripts, could anyone give me any advice. I'm sorry if I sound vague, I just don't know where to start. :/
