    Website Navigation problem. PHP related?

    I'm trying to make a website similar to a blog. The format goes like this:

    | ENTRY | 04/22/06 Link
    04/21/06 Link
    04/20/06 Link

    I need to know how I can make it so that the links from the new entries that I post daily will show up on the navigation side on every page without 1) using a frame for the Content, or 2) adding the new HTML to EVERY page each time. My friend told me it should have something to do with PHP or XML, but I've never worked with it before.

    I was looking around the internet and www.supafly.com uses the EXACT same method I need. Alot of the sites I've come across using this method seem to have ?'s and ='s and .asp's in the URL if that makes any difference. Do you know of a website/tutorial that will teach me how to do this? I can't search myself because I don't even know where to start. Hopefully you understood my awful description. Thanks! - Ryan

    you'll need to use php and a database for example mysql.

    do you need actual code?? or just a place to get started??

    I was actually hoping there would just be a tutorial or page that would explain to me how to do it. Maybe that's wishful thinking. A place to start off would help, but as you can tell I'm pretty much in the dark here. The more guidance the better.

    you need a PHP/MySQL content management system....PHP is the language, and MySQL is the database....both PHP and MySQL are likely to be loaded on your server...

    There are existing open source solutions like Mambo or Joomla, or you could learn some PHP and SQL and make your own.....

    try Googling:

    1) PHP/MySQL content management system tutorial
    2) content management system tutorial
    3) Mambo
    4) Joomla

    etc....I don't know of any good tutorials offhand, but there are lots out there...I'm sure you can find one

    also, for reference:

    www.php.net
    www.mysql.com

    good luck!
    Regards, R.J.
