Oct 20, 2008 @ 15:45:09

The NETTUTS.com website has posted this new tutorial (complete with demo and source download) showing the creation of a simple blog in PHP (object-oriented style).

Today we are going to take our knowledge of PHP and MySQL a step further by creating a simple blog. While there are countless excellent free blog platforms, the purpose of this tutorial is not to make a "better" blog but to use the process of making a blog to learn about advanced database structure techniques and how to use data more efficiently by utilizing objects in PHP.

They start from the backend - creating the database first to store the post information for the blog. On top of that they create a "BlogPost" class to interface with each of the posts. This is then use to fetch the entries from the database and display them out in a simple list (which they augment with a little CSS).
