Padraic Brady has posted part eight of his series guiding you through his construction of Zend Framework-based blogging software:
In Part 8 of the ongoing saga describing how to build a real world blog application using the Zend Framework we finally reach the point at which we concentrate on blog entries. At the end of this Part, we will be able to create and edit entries in preparation for Part 9 when we will explore displaying them to the world!
In this part, he shows how to add in the Entry controller with an Add action inside (and what code goes in them). He makes a Zend_Form extended form and throws in some validation, a use of HTMLPurifier and the code to push these entries into your database.
