Creating a QuickStart Blog with CodeIgniter (0470413387) cover image
In this Wrox Blox, you will learn how to build a QuickStart blogging tool with CodeIgniter. The blogging tool will include an administrative dashboard that will allow users to create and manage posts and categories. If you’re a PHP developer, CodeIgniter will help you build Rails-like applications without learning a new language. Use MVC and agile technologies, model and schema for products, helpers and libraries, Ajax and Scriptaculous, to create applications like content management, blogs, and forums.
