I've been programming with PHP for a long time now, well a few months ago. I stopped doing it because of work, and because of another hobby, video editing.Now, I wanted to try PHP again, and probably just "refresh* my knowledge about it. I really wanted to make websites, specially my own website. I downloaded XAMPPLite and WAMPServer, to see which of the two really works best. I know there's a PHP Manual available for download, for Offline use. I downloaded it directly at the PHP Website.Since I'm on dial-up right now, I really needed everything to be offline. Where can I get tutorials, manuals or guides for AJAX, PHP+AJAX, XHTML and CSS?Also, I use EditPlus with alot of Add-ons. Can you recommend another editor?A good one, that is being used nowadays?I think EditPlus is a thing of the past.Thanks everyone and waiting for you're reply.

I would definitely recommend w3schools as an excellent source for all things web-based. Whether you can download their pages to look at offline is a different matter, but you can always save the page itself (at least I would assume it's not too difficult) for offline browsing, or just copy and paste the source code so you can look at it offline.

It has a lot of the basics on there to give you a quick reminder of what needs doing, as well as the link to the forum which has an absolute wealth of knowledge...if you can filter through the tonnes of garbage.

As for text editors, I can strongly suggest Notepad++ as a Windows based editor, and gedit if you're using, say, Fedora (and likely most other forms of Linux). Both work wonders.

Hehe, notepad++ and w3schools would be exactly what I would have suggested. They are both quite good. Another good place for a PHP Manual is actually the PHP website itself. It's a lot more comprehensive than w3schools, so for more complicated things like sockets your best bet would be PHP's website.

Thank you. Well the problem right now is, I'm not on DSL. Still applying for one, so I'm using dial-up. Does w3schools offer an eBook or something, which will allow me to download their articles for offline viewing? I used EditPlus before, and when you type an incomplete PHP code, a tooltip appears, telling you what you need to type and what does it do. Notepad++ does not have that feature.

 

That's why I'm planning to use PHP Designer 2008. Is it ok to use it? What do you think? Any suggestions?

I've downloaded an offline version of the PHP manual. It's the chm format and I love it.. how about AJAX manual(s)? I tried downloading some eBooks about AJAX, and AJAX is not user-friendly. If only there's a PHP Class AJAX or something, which will make developing AJAX websites a lot easier.

I don't know whether w3schools offering any books or not. But there are plenty of ebooks available on those topics. Just google for them and you'll find a lot.

PHPDesigner 2008 is very good. I am using it. It not only give word suggestions but also...many more features like debugging and syntax error highlighting etc...You can happily and easily use it.

Before learning AJAX you must have good skills in javascript, little XML and HTTP. Try learning javascript and practice it and learn the others as well. I agree...AJAX is little bit difficult, because its not a technology itself. It is a combination of different technologies.
