The Wikka "Howto" Pages

This page is still a stub - it will be expanded soon.

This page is the "hub" for tips and guidelines for Wikka Developers - both those working on features intended to be included in an official Wikka release, and those writing "plugins" that extend the basic Wikka functionality for specific purposes but don't (won't) form part of the package.

There will be a variety of guidelines and tips, all intended to get good, maintainable code that generates standards-compliant output. Some of these will be based on established web standards (such as XHTML and CSS), while others are more proposed guidelines to enhance readability and maintainablity of our code base, support (future) internationalization, documentation guidelines, etc..

What to expect:

Tip for beginning developers

While Wikka is pretty easy to hack, you do at least need some basic knowledge of PHP to do that. And you need a little more than that to be able to write your own (simple) extensions. If you're a PHP beginner, there is now a free downloadable book that might help:

Book Title: A Programmer's Introduction to PHP 4.0

A Programmer's Introduction to PHP 4.0 shows you how to make the most of PHP's powerful capabilities, regardless of your current scope of PHP knowledge.

To celebrate the runaway success of W. Jason Gilmore's second Apress title, Beginning PHP 5 and MySQL: From Novice to Professional, we're pleased to be able to offer this earlier PHP title to you absolutely free. This book begins with a rapid introduction to PHP's syntax and basic functionality, then steers you toward advanced issues, like PHP's role in database manipulation, sessions, and user interactivity. It examines how PHP can work with XML, JavaScript, and the Component Object Model (COM). You'll find it loaded with practical examples and several projects which can be immediately incorporated on any website.
