My 2nd Ever Php Script/site


Recommended Posts

Hi, I made this (still in the very alpha stage) site for managing payments through a group of people.When a group member/s make/s a payment they enter it in, stating who else in the group should pay and the site works out who owes owe stores the data in a database.The statement can then be viewed that contains all previously made payments and displays the totals for each group member.There are many more features to be implemented including the ability to create group accounts rather than the single account that exists.View the site hereI couldn't have got as far as I did without the help of people in this forum

It seems very functional so far. And it validates. So very few people who post here take the time to validate before they post. I don't know if you purposely validated it, or if you just wrote very good code, but awesome job there. As for the site itself, if you are planning to use it on the web, I would highly suggest getting a different domain name than a subdomains at x10hosting. And the website could defintely use a few more colors, and maybe a logo or something, help spice it up a bit. And of course anything having anything to do with money aught to be secured, and https: instead of http:

Thanks for the feedback.Yeah it's nice that the code validates; a lot of it is echoed by php so I had to spend a lot of time making sure it was all ok.I haven't spent a lot of time on the design side of things at the moment. This site is mainly an exercise in php/mysql and once all the code is functional I can spend more time on the design including a logo and a prettier layout.x10hosting is obviously just for development as they offer pretty good free hosting with php and mysql.As for the security, no actual money is handled through the site it is just a method of keeping records of payments so i think the cost of a SSL certificate (or whatever it is) would be a slight waste of my money. Especially if the site initially will generate no income for me.

It works but it's ugly. To the inexperienced user, an ugly website may add up to a unfinished, unprofessional website.
