DevShed starts off a new series today looking at making a blogging engine with the CodeIgniter framework. In this first part they get things set up and start work on the MySQL tables and views.
People love to communicate, which may be why one of the most popular web applications you can develop is a blogger. In this six-part series, you'll learn how to develop a blogging application using PHP and the Code Igniter framework. In this first article, we'll create the bare bones structure, with plenty of code samples to help you understand the process.
You'll already need a local copy of the CodeIgniter framework installed before you get going (download here). With that set up, you can follow along with their simple controller creation and making the view to pull out blog posts from their example MySQL database.
