Even with a 1,000,000+ page website you can still have every page reachable with a minimum of three clicks. We have designed a...


Looking for an angle

I’ve started using a method called heredoc to set a start and end point, example below. // Heredoc string // $sstring = <<<TEST Hello World TEST; The word TEST could be anything and it wont finish inputing the string until it comes across it again.

Three ways to debug php 0

Three ways to debug php

Method 1 – error.log For this to work you need to be coding in a linux environment with php, apache etc setup.
