And this is an excellent site for referencing functions with examples. Not just PHP, but just about anything...

No, this is not a good resource. They're full of bad practices, false information and bad advice. See W3Fools for an in-depth explanation of why this site should neither be used for learning nor as a reference.

Whatever you do: Think for yourself and use multiple sources, don't just copy and paste other peoples' code. The internet is full of sh*tty PHP code with outdated features and unsecure practices, so it's better to actually learn the language and program yourself.

I recommend Matt Zandstra's two PHP books. For absolute beginners, the Sams Learn PHP in 24 hours should be able to make you an intermediate skilled programmer by the time you finish reading all the chapters. Once at this level, you should read the other book by Zandstra: PHP Object, Patterns and Practices. If you truly understand everything in these two books, you will be close to advanced programmer.

Before you start learning PHP, it's probably a good idea if you have at least some HTML knowledge. There are so many free tutorials available on internet. You can easily learn PHP from those.
