Authoritative or exhaustive?

How about a category for

Sites with large collections of tutorials

[zend.com...]
[phpfreaks.com...]
[phpbuilder.com...]
[devshed.com...]

One tutorial that I think would help beginners get a leg up

Organizing your code (aka PHP's Free Energy) [zend.com]

As the resident newbie around here I'd also like to recommend the tutorials at O'Reilly's website [onlamp.com]. Especially useful for newbies is John Coggeshall's PHP Foundations [onlamp.com]

Another favorite is SitePoint [sitepoint.com].

Some more advanced stuff

Object-Oriented PHP

Tutorial
Long Object-Oriented Tutorial [sitepoint.com] by the guy who runs the php patterns site.

Patterns
PHP Pattern Repository [phppatterns.com]

Some useful links there guys. Can topics not be pinned on this forum? As soon as this thread disappears on to the next page, you just KNOW what someone is going to ask. :)

Anyway, how about:

Codewalkers [codewalkers.com]

They have some useful tutorials.

Since these two questions have been coming up again and again lately, I think it might be worth it to highlight two specific tutuorials that I noticed while exploring codewalkers (thanks Dreamcatcher):

Writing a Template System in PHP [codewalkers.com]

Mail() From Start To Finish [codewalkers.com] with info on simple text, html and attachments.

I found a great little book
Just over 100 pages
"Essential PHP Security" by Chris Shiflett
A real must have.
I think it should be added in the list of PHP books this forum is sometimes asked to supply.

For a PHP newcomer it will help starting with security in mind.
It comes from the editor that always has a reptilian on the cover .... See what I mean.

Somehow Advanced:
PHP anthology - Object oriented PHP solutions-
Volume one and two
with some work the OO concept will be clearer as well as templating w/OO

Not beginner:
Professional PHP5

For all:
PHP and MySQL
Web Development

ergophobe
great link

We need something (tutorial)regarding all strings manipulations and related functions (explode, implode etc...)

WHAT WILL BE GREAT:
a forum section for tutorials
for example I'll love to post (needs to put it together) what I have done with OO templating
I will not support the idea of adding a script repository section.
But a tutorial area could be a great addition.

This site has always helped me:

[webmasterworld.com...]
:P

But, Learning PHP5 by O'reilly is a great one.
