general advice about which way to go

Hi all,

My first posting here.

I would be very thankful for a general advice about which "way to go"
to accheive a certain arrangement on a web page.

The page should show a list of items (a wishlist) with about 50 - 150
items, presented each one in a row in a table with e.g. 5 columns.

The visitor should have the possibility to add items to the list
and/or leave a vote for some of the items. Then the list should be
updated with the added items and sorted anew according to the voting.

To be able to vote, the visitor should have to log in with a password.

Which language should I use for this?

I have done some basic HTML, JavaScript and CGI Perl, but if I needed
another language for this, then I would not mind having a look at
that.

Many thanks in advance.

First you'll need to find out what server side languages and databases
your ISP supports.

That would be PHP and MySQL.

First you'll need to create your database consisting of a couple of
tables:
users (log in information and other details)
list (holds your wish list items and details)

The web pages you'll need
Results page: show non-logged in users the results
Voting page: allow logged users to vote on your items
Add item page: logged users can add an item to your database

In addition you'll need
registration page with forgot password email response
maintain registration information

The pages will need html output to display the information.
How you get the data from the database is via PHP.

Hi Jeff,

thanks for your answers.

Now I know what languages to use and the general outlines.

Next step for me will be to go to the bookstore and find me some
introductions to MySQL and PHP.

Do you know any beginners usenet forum for this two languages?

TIA

Both mySQL and PHP comes with pretty good documentation.
The following aren't beginners forums but scan through them for
previous posts on resource materials (tons of books and web pages)
comp.lang.php
alt.php
mailing.database.mysql
