that is the right answer... "learn to read". php.net etc... few books. I
have made mine first script in month (gallery script with upload) and I
was complite novice. textual part was second script (forum, can be used
as blog engine with some small html design adjustements) and was easy.
and now, not even year later I have (almoast) full cms working (alomst)
as I wont it to work.
I like http://php.resourceindex.com/ and their part with examples and
tutorials. some links are dead, but there is still much to learn. or at
least can be used to see what you have to learn (like learn to read :-P)

Much to the same, I'm using WordPress to solve this issue, as it's a simple
database in mySQL. I learend enough php to get it to pop the five most
recent posts on my front page, with a limit of so many characters. What I
need next though is - the posts sometimes have HTML coding in them. I'd
like that HTML coding (like lists, links, etc) to be useful and still affect
how the post content looks.

Unfortunately, when I'm using css and div containers to put my posts in, on
the first closing of an html tag (like a ul /ul) it seems to drop the CSS
formatting from the page (like padding).

I have yet to figure out how to keep the html inside posts without killing
the containers CSS.

I've posted about this already, but I don't think people are understanding
what I want.

but it in your php, like:

echo( "i will now break a line<hr>" );
echo( "tee hee. told you so :-P" );

is that wot u mean?

i already have a very very good book on php. all i need is some basic
instructions on how to build it. not the coding iteself. like what
systems do i start with. do i create db before any files, how do i link
a config file in with all other files etc etc

you no wot i mean??? i hope!

If you download and install Wordpress to your host (pretty easy, really, I
think maybe 3 mouse clicks), it'll setup a very simple db via mySQL.

Wordpress implements it's own "blog entry" pages you can use to manage,
post, whatever, your blog. I got creative, and am just using it to Post
entries. On the main page of my site, which is NOT the wordpress page, I
just queried the wp_posts table in the dbWordPress database. It returned
the rows I wanted and I used a loop in PHP to format the html.

I didn't see any reason to re-invent the post wheel, so..use someone elses
hard work. :)

The only code you need to worry about is querying the mySQL Database.

Hope that helps.

To have a book is not enough though...
A pinch of brain stuff would be good to start reading. (not enough for
programming though ).
Are you expecting to find a teacher here? If so you're in wrong place,
kid. Go to kids.basic.school.newsgroup.

Plank!!!
