Web Programmers Needed

Hey All,

Sorta like "Jack and the Bean Stalk", this site just keeps growing and growing and growing. But, it's getting to the point where it is difficult for just one person to maintain everything and keep everything up-to-date in a timely manner. So, if you are a web programmer (not really a designer) and would like to help out with some site sections, fill out and submit this programmers sign-up form. Your help is greatly appreciated!

In addition to regular HTML, the site currently uses PHP (http://www.php.net) as the main site scripting language and MySQL (http://www.mysql.com) as the database. Currently, the only prefabricated chunk of code used on the site is the forum (http://www.phpbb.com). If you have web programming skills and would like to help out, please fill out and submit the following form.

You can't do dynamic content in plain HTML. .org would be fairly boring if it weren't dynamic.

not only that.. the number of pages that would have to be made would be massive.. over 50k members and about 30+ pages... now work that out.. then there is the fact new members join every hour or so..

html is a waste of time these days.. I'm trying to learn php for my site...

Though, to be fair, aren't most of those related to links posted by members to offsite pages/files from their video page?

Hey jonmartensen,

Yeah, those problems are from video creators putting in bad links or just letting the links get old. The site has no direct control over the target of those links. Hmmmm, a script to detect 404s would be cool...

This mod from phpbb.com detects if a remote Avatar works before displaying it. (it displays no Avatar instead of a red X if it can't be found/loaded) Anyways, maybe the code for detecting broken links is similiar? :?:

Code: Select all
<?php
if(getimagesize("link/to/img/picture.jpg" == "0"){
echo "<img src="link/to/img/picture.jpg"";
}
else{}
?>

Code: Select all
<?
if(file_exists("http://www.hazardnet.net/bannerr.gif/")){
?>
<img src="http://www.hazardnet.net/bannerr.gif">

i'm on a roll today.... mistake after mistake, instead of using the url to a file, you need to use the absolute path, if your going to do it that way (with the file_exists() function)... like so..
Code: Select all
<?
if(file_exists("/Documents and Settings/Administrator/Desktop/HazardNet/bannerr.gif")){
?>
<img src="http://www.hazardnet.net/bannerr.gif">
<?}else{echo "Doesnt Work.";}?>

I'm 21, in college studying CS, and know about HTML, XML, CSS, Java, and Javascript. I don't know PHP because I haven't taken a database class. But, I probably don't have time to help because I have too much schoolwork. :( PM me if there's anything you think I can do.
