Programming PHP-Nuke

by Douglas Paterson | April 2010 | MySQL Content Management Open Source PHP

In the previous article of the series by Douglas Paterson, author of Building Websites with PHP-Nuke, we transformed the look of the Dinosaur Portal with the help of a new PHP-Nuke theme. In this article, which is the concluding article of the article series, we will look at programming PHP-Nuke. Specifically, this means creating new blocks and modules. Before we get stuck into that, we will have a look at what actually happens inside PHP-Nuke when a page is requested by a browser.

After that, we will create a new block, a better version of the Dinosaur of the Day block we created in Article 4. That, if you recall, was a static HTML block, and we had hard-coded the image of the dinosaur and its title into the block. Here we will create a block that takes the image to display and title of the dinosaur from the database. This will introduce us to data access in PHP-Nuke, a topic that you will use a lot as you begin to code more with PHP-Nuke.
