Hi All,

We all designers are fearful into a firm spot in developing a time management and statistic/reporting web application/system. Because of our server I cannot work with SQL. I have to create this PHP application in Adobe Dreamweaver from scrape *eek* I am not very experienced person with PHP, know a little html and java but that is it.

Is there anyone that can help me on how to get the data from that I have designed placed in a part page where a Manager can then get the stats by the push of a button? If not is there anyone that can provide me some reliable advice as to how to go about liability this then or maybe have a program that I can use by way of Dreamweaver to help ?

Need Help

Thanks in Advance

Dreamweaver is not going to magically write this application for you. Sure it may help with some of the HTML, but that's about it.

Unfortunately if you're going to want to do this yourself, you have a lot of learning to do. Aside from writing out the code for your entire website (which I will not be doing ;)), the best I can offer you is some places to do to start learning.

- Library/book store
- [php.net...]
- [w3schools.com...]
- [webmasterworld.com...]
- [google.com...]
- etc...

Once you have specific questions about design or implementation, feel free to post back here and we'll do our best to help out!

Good luck

There are dozens of sites with code snippets for almost any function you can think of. You should look at a number of those and then take bits and pieces from each to make your own version.

I'm surprised they have you doing this work if you aren't comfortable outside of Adobe Dreamweaver. You need to take one massive step back and learn how to code first, plugging in scripts won't work if you don't know the basics.

Even with pointers into the right directions, you're still going to know 'what to search for' when encountering the finer details and problems of finishing the server side system.

I suggest searching for pre-existing software and seeing if anything matches the requirements of the project, and hire someone to install it for you.
