9Lessons:
User Signup using Facebook Data
January 24, 2011 @ 13:48:55

On the 9Lessons site there's a recent tutorial showing you how to make a customized signup form that still uses the Facebook authentication as its base.

Using facebook registration plug-in users can easily sign up on your website using facebook data. With one simple facebook login the form will be filled with user appropriate data. This plug-in is a simple iframe you can place it anywhere on your webpage. You can also add a custom field if facebook doesn't have.

He walks you through the four (or five, depending on your view) different steps you'll need to make the simple form. You'll need to have a database to store the user's local data in, including their Facebook uid. A simple iframe on your page gives you a Facebook login form and a basic callback page handles the successful submission and saving of Facebook's response. You can add a custom field in the form's json and it'll pass right on through too.

PHPBuilder.com:
Use jQuery to Build a Newsletter Subscription Popup with a MySQL/PHP Backend
January 21, 2011 @ 09:17:27

On PHPBuilder.com today Jason Gilmore has a new tutorial posted showing how to combine PHP, MySQL and a jQuery interface to create a newsletter subscription popup for your site that doesn't interfere with the flow of the site.

More recently, websites have taken a more aggressive approach in terms of inviting visitors to subscribe to a newsletter or consider some other special offer. The approach involves displaying a popup window the very first time a visitor navigates to the website. The visitor has the option of either responding to the offer or providing his e-mail address by interacting with the popup, or can choose to close the popup at which point it won't reappear for a (hopefully) significant period of time.

He uses two jQuery plugins - simplemodal and jquery-cookie to do some of the heavy lifting on the frontend. Full HTML, CSS and Javascript code are provided to make the interface work. There's no backend code for the PHP/MySQL integration, but it's a pretty simple form so it shouldn't be overly difficult.

Zend Framework Tutorial Series Part 3 '" Login and Signup with (RE)Captcha
July 13, 2010 @ 12:30:32

In a new post to his phpDevelopment blog Andrei Gabreanu has added the third part of his Zend Framework tutorial series. This time he looks at using a CAPTCHA image in your form via a call to a Zend_Captcha component.

he third part of the tutorial series will present you with a fully functionable solution for a login and signup page that activates a RECaptcha, via Zend_Captcha as a Service, when the user attempts to login/signup 3 times and fails. The tutorial will also show you how to use your models and how to structure your business logic inside your module based application.

They help you set up the database configuration information, create a sample layout for the page, work with the authentication and users controllers and, of course, the form. The inclusion of the CAPTCHA is as easy as adding a Zend_Form_Element_Captcha to the Zend_Form instance and setting up the user/signin process.

PHP-GTK Community Site:
PHP-GTK, throw it down.
January 12, 2007 @ 07:49:00

If you're a PHP-GTK developer and have heard anything about the PHPThrowdown event that sounds interesting, check out this new post on the PHP-GTK community site. They're looking for a few good coders.

After a few cups of tea the idea of putting several teams together so that we could have some competition within the ranks came about. Without any word on what the categories are for certain, there is still the Miscellaneous category. So either way by category or Miscellaneousness we can get some good stuff in and you will not have to see me cry.

If you'd like to help the cause and join the team, submit your information on their signup form and wait for further instructions. Should you or any of your team be captured...wait, wrong team. If you'd like to talk some with the other coders that you could be working with, though, check out their IRC channel over on the Freenode network - #php-gtk.
