    Hello All need some assistance


    Hello all, basically I am trying to create a top site, i was wondering how should i start off writing my php so that when user clicks on the register.php page and fills in the fields such as the username, password and other information about their server such as the title and description it would automatically appear on the homepage list, also how can I make every other server listing have different background colour, for example 1server -light yellow background 2.dark yellow and repeat

    You should probably start by breaking these requirements down into steps assuming you will be doing the work yourself.

    i.e.

    1. PHP page to collect user data
    2. Store collected data into a databse
    3. PHP page to display user data
    4. etc.

    Then investigate each step and google tutorials on how to start programming in PHP/MySQL/CSS/HTML - Bring any questions you have back here to the appropriate forum.

    Good luck.

    to make things clearer about my first post. An example

    user would first of all register like here: topofgames.com/index.php?register

    and then all the information would be displayed on the homepage like this one: topofgames.com

    Correct. I got that from your first post - though further clarification doesnt hurt.

    Do you intend to make this yourself? Do you have any programming experience?

    If not, then we have a forum called 'hire a programmer' - if so, then please feel free to read the stickies, take some tutorials, and get some basic code together. I'd start with creating a web-form and posting the results to the browser.

    Almost any of these will do: https://www.google.com/search?client...utf-8&oe=utf-8

    You will need:

    1. A home page that reads user data out of the database that is received from:
    2. A registration page with a form that collects user data

    Remember your most important weapon is going to be your editor (look into VIM, Emacs, GEdit, Notepad++) and www.google.com

    If you come up against any problems bring the code back here and we can help you solve the issue - but remember to use code tags and post in the appropriate forum
