Hello,

If you would like to learn the most basic use of file creation, file append, post, and button on a single SELF page, you can maybe benefit of this easy basic beginner tutorial for Post, Button, and SELF use.

A friend of mine asked me to make him a small page on the web.

Thank you for sharing your code and ideas!

Please remember that the Programming forum is for receiving answers to programming questions. As this post is intended to share an idea rather than seek an answer, I am moving it to the General forum where it will be seen by a more general audience of members and guests.

That is correct, the Programming forum is the place for those seeking help and examples. This post does not fit that description.

It is not a repository of everyone's personal examples offered without context.

I think it is great that you want to share your own learning experience and example code, but I would suggest that your blog space here on LQ might be a more appropriate place to post your examples and tutorials when not offered in response to the questions of others. Doing so provides a level of personal organization and continuity of thought not appropriate within the forums.

Code:
/* Just trying to point you in the right direction */
struct right_direction {...};
struct right_direction *Xeratul;

Nice initiative.

Since you imply a request for feedback, two concerns:

If the plan is to use it as a positive example of PHP, it should probably address the concept of tainted data and explicitly address the matter of data validation before exposing any user-provided input to the system or the user. This is probably covered by use of the function htmlspecialchars(), but it is important enough to point out in some inline comments and maybe make a bigger deal out of what is happening with the user-supplied data.

Second, you are inadvertently including a lot of unnecessary JavaScript. At least it is present there in the buttons. This greatly weakens security and accessibility but if nothing else distracts from what should be the single focus: PHP. So the OnClick attributes accidentally included in the button elements should be removed. Buttons should always be inside a form element, anyway.
