sorry - I'm new

preamble: I have a lot of my php rolling now, and it looks very exciting;
sow sorry to ask such dim questions, but I wonder if you could point me in
the right direction for the following:
1. how do you do loads of user input ?
it does not look like there are a lot of functions for user buttons and
input fields; do you
2. mix php with another user gui inout language ?
I was about to code up php inside html actions (I'm new to html too!)
3. how do you organise you files ? and make functions able to skip accross
them.
Well. that sort of stuff. Thanks very much

learn a little more about html first. then use php to insert dynamic
content.

php is just snippets of code that are embeded into an html page. you do not
realy want to use php
to generate all your static html stuff that never changes. waste of time.

once you get used to html, then php make it all fun :)

Yes, and that language is HTML.

PHP is designed to work with Web servers. Web servers serve HTML
pages. HTML has adequate methods of taking user input and forwarding
it to the server. So why put input/output methods in PHP when they
are already in HTML?

Learning PHP pretty well necessarily involves learning HTML.
