Self updating picture site

P: n/a
(I am very new to PHP I have just started in the last week) My client
is a photographer and wants to be able to update his site himself
without learning HTML. My friend says this is possible with PHP but I
don't know enough to make this. I was hoping that someone could point
me in the right direction.

So what I want is a form that has a title field(if possible I want
this to be the title of the new page), a discription field and a way
to ftp a picture and with this information create a new page for the
picture.

Usually I would experiment with this but unfortunately I need to get
it done in 3 days and I can't learn PHP that fast.

This we can do :
The official manual online reviewed by coders
http://www.php.net/manual/en/features.file-upload.php

Then you can create the corresponding HTML file or build it on the fly
with data from a database.

It will not be via 'ftp' but via 'http' but you've got the concept.

Then why did you accept?
Do you want us to do your job? That's not the way it is supposed to be.
Sorry.

right direction: Go to your client and tell him you can't get the job
done?

other direction: Have a look at whatever gallery script out there, and
let this inspire you.

It is common to store information in a database and then use that
information to generate web pages.
So what I want is a form that has a title field(if possible I want
this to be the title of the new page), a discription field and a way
to ftp a picture and with this information create a new page for the
picture.
See above.

I'm sorry but there isn't a magic plug in that will do this. The only
way you could do it would be by adapting an existing solution, but I
doubt you could get your head around it in three days even if I posted
the code.

Hire someone.

Heya,

wrong... oh well... grab some caffeine and hammer your way through this
tute... hope it helps!

Thank you.
I got it done with the help of the tutorials and examples. I came from
perl to php so I didn't have much trouble understanding the code. I
had a perl version ready if I couldn't finish the php version in time
but for the perl version I had to compromise some of my clients
specifications.
Thank you very much for all your help. I know you don't want to do my
job for me.
