I've created a basic database setup and an even more basic form to enter new posts in the format in which I am writing these updates. So that's basically a VARCHAR column for the Post Titles, a TEXT column for the post content and some more stuff like author, posting time in MySQL DATETIME format and a unique key to identify every post.
It's only an experimental setup so far, but after fighting with Html > PHP > MySQL character encoding issues I think I've worked out a basic method of storing data and retrieving it into the desired html elements.
I'm not hooking it up to a Database server here on the website yet - for obvious reasons.
I've also come across a new IDE that I am getting used to more and more. I'ts called Aptana Studio 3, and it's an open source project.
You can check it out RIGHT HERE if you like.
And while I'm speaking about new fancy tools I've come across, I would like to mention jQuery as well, which I'm trying out right now. In case you haven't heard about that before - which I'm ashamed to admit I did not until a couple of weeks ago - you really should check it out .
