Help please. I've recently found web pages with the extension *.php. I must have missed something, but I've not come across these before. Is it something to do with style sheets? I could do with some advice - I need to amend one and don't wish to foul it up inadvertantly.

Thanks,

Mal

php is a type of programing language widly used for web pages. To quote from the php manual:
PHP, which stands for "PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor" is a widely-used Open Source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for Web development and can be embedded into HTML. Its syntax draws upon C, Java, and Perl, and is easy to learn. The main goal of the language is to allow web developers to write dynamically generated webpages quickly, but you can do much more with PHP


I like it and use it to run the conversion scripts at folkifo.

glad it was of help. A little more info for you:

The php website is at http://www.php.net/. Everyone will have thier own software favourites but my personal favourite editor for my occasional dabblings into php is Zend Personal Studio though it seems as if the current version may disable more features than the one I installed.

Thanks,

One thing to note, most of the PHP web-pages are based on a Database, and they make up the page on the fly composed of elements from a database.
