Today I finally uploaded the finished version of our web application to my dakar server:
As you can see, the CSS involved in making the website was very simple, as I wanted to focus completely on the PHP, and making sure the website ran alongside the database.
As far as functionality is concerned, the website does almost everything we initially wanted it to. Users are able to:
- create an account
- view existing holidays
- sort them by ‘rating’ or ‘date added’
- add a new holiday (only if they’re logged in)
The website also features the ‘About us’ page which I discussed here.
Unfortunately, there were also a few things we were unable to achieve, including:
- uploading an image along with the holiday
- searching for holidays using tags
- clicking through on an individual holiday to view more details
Overall, I am quite pleased with the functionality of the final project, although with more time I would have liked to improve upon the CSS and make it a more visually appealing website. This project has definitely helped me improve my PHP skills drastically, as I now have a good understanding of what it can be used to do, and how to use the code to its full potential.
