If you’re looking for a comprehensive series on how to create an expansible blog application with PHP 5, then this group of tutorials might be what you’ve been expecting to find. Welcome to the concluding installment of the series "Building a blogger with PHP." Made up of three friendly articles, this series provides you with all the information you need to start building a blog system with PHP in a few easy steps.
Now, and returning for a moment to the second article of this series, I’m pretty certain that you’ll recall all the topics that I covered in that tutorial. Since my primary goal was to construct an expansible blogger, in the previous article I coded some additional methods that corresponded to the already familiar “BlogProcessor” class. These methods provided it with the capacity for displaying all the blog entries stored on the corresponding database table, as well as showing the respective input forms for inserting and updating different blogs.
Of course, all the features that I mentioned above mean that the blog application in question is close to completion. After all, what else can we ask for? Well, not so fast, since the blogger is still immature when it comes to its visual presentation. It could also use some extra features, such as a basic client-side validation mechanism that must be applied to the input forms that I referenced before.
As you can see, there are still some aspects of the blog system that need to be addressed properly. Therefore, in this concluding part of the series, I’ll cover them and complete the system.
Sounds really interesting doesn't it? Let's waste no more time in preliminaries and start reading. We’re almost done, believe me!
