User Personalization with PHP: The Home Page
May 06, 2009 @ 12:08:53

WebReference.com has posted the next tutorial in their "user personalizaton" series - a look at the user's "home page" once they've logged in.

In this article, we will be looking at the home page of the application. This is the first page that the user will see after they have gone through the authentication process. The page will provide links and access to the rest of the application, except the admin section.

The code connects to the database, fetches all of the information about the user and their bookmarks. A table is generated showing the URL listing and the navigation is built. Also included it a bit of code to create a "recommendations" system.

Symfony Project Blog:
Plugins have a new home
Jul 31, 2008 @ 17:42:09

The Symfony project's blog has a new post today about a big move that one of its resources it making - the framework's plugins are getting their own section.

I am pretty happy to announce that I have just deployed a new version of the symfony project website with a brand new "Plugins" section (look at the top menu entries) to replace the Trac plugin management system.

The new section has a listing of all of the available plugins (can be filtered) and dedicated pages for each of them with things like license, version and release information. You can also search the plugins based on keywords and authors. Developers adding their plugins have a full admin interface and uses the Trac accounts to manage access.

Hannes Magnusson's Blog:
"Latest releases" box and "conference teaser"
Feb 19, 2007 @ 07:48:00

Hannes Magnusson has posted about more updates that are being made to the PHP.net website today, including an upgrade to the "conference teaser" patch and the introduction of a new box to like directly to the latest releases on the front page.

Since I moved the 'current releases' info into "a giant" includable array, living in include/version.inc, we can now provide a simple XML feed (or whatever) for you to parse to get the latest release info simpler and more accurately...

What do you think? Is it worth it? What kind of format would you want it in?

He wants your feedback on this last point - would having an XML feed for just the version info be that useful? Or would it just be yet another RSS feed to add to the list to keep up with the new PHP releases?

Zip 1.8.5, small bug fixes release
Jan 30, 2007 @ 11:34:00

Pierre-Alain Joye has posted about the latest update to his Zip PECL package today:

This release fixes two small issues, a leak happening on error and a bug in extractTo. Empty directories were not created recursively, for example an entry like "test/emptydir", only the "test" directory was created.

This latest download is here and the homepage for the project is over on this PECL page (as well as details on what the package can do and documentation of all of its features).

Zip-1.7.5 works even with broken path
Oct 23, 2006 @ 14:58:00

For those using the Zip pecl pakcage, Pierre has a quick update you'll need to download to resolve some pathing issues that were found.

A little release to help windows users to work with broken zip entries named like "a/b//c.txt". PHP 5.1+ mkdir does not support such path on windows and simply refuses to create the base dir. The """bug""" has been fixed in php 5.2 or earlier and a work around exists in zip itself for earlier versions.

You can grab this latest update directly from the project's homepage.
