Re: Formulize / Pageworks /MySQL
Tonight something crossed my mind.
It is obvious that I want something that is not there yet, at least not nearly 'pre-cooked'.
In the postings above you can see a few things:
1. I am new to Xoops
2. I wanr to share data with people who are interested.
3. The data are in the database already
4. I don't know how to get those data properly on the people's monitor.
What I've seen so far of Xoops, is that there so may modules and that people get lost in it.
There are so may support forums, in so may categories, that one does not know where to look anymore.
Still, I think that XOOPS is very good, and I want to continue with it.
So far, so good.
What I want to say is simple:
I like to have a module that does not exist.
Eevrything on XOOPS is open source, so carried by the community.
So, let's make my module TOGETHER.
A lot of people want to learn more how everything works.
At least, I want to.
And he we have a good approach (at least in my eyes):
I don't know anything about Xoops, but I want to start building a module.
You can say: "We have some good tutorials and examples". That's true. See my other posting, on which I got a very good reply. See The search item
To make a long story short: I want to propose that I start building a new module.
The purpose of that module is to show data of an existing database to the people. It can be a database of your stamp collection, book shelves, or what ever.
In my case I want to start with my database of the Top 2000.
It is a program on the dutch radio at the end of each year.
My database has tables of the artists, songs, rankings in the top 2000 of the last nine years.
One of the things, that I would like to hear your opnion about is the following question:
If people are interested, are we doing this "workshop" here, in one of the may forums, or you we do it on my own site. I could start a forum for it.
Please let me hear some idea's
