In part 4 of this series I’ll be showing you how to create the user maintenance for our Simple Task Board app. It will include editing, adding and removing users. Everything will be done using CodeIgniter and I’ll explain the model, controller and views necessary to execute this task. Furthermore, jQuery will be added as well as some CSS.
Last week we did our install procedure but we didn’t quite installed our app. The Template class, which includes the header and the footer was missing. That’s what we are going to prepare today. Besides that, we are also going to create our login routines as well as build our menu, which will be used in all pages of our application.
This is a quick post to explain how to group your posts in the form of series. I’ll explain how to use a custom taxonomy to group them as well as how to show all posts belonging to the series.
In this post I’ll show how to set up your CodeIgniter installation properly and start our Task Board app. For this purpose we will also define two database tables and a simple installation procedure. This post is part of the “Creating a CodeIgniter App” and continues what started with the Introduction.
Last week I wrote about a small CodeIgniter app called Simple Task Board. It is capable of managing multiple projects and tasks, but it is very simple, specially now that it is in the first version. So I thought it would be a good idea to explain how it was done. This explanation will occur in a series of posts, starting today with an introduction about CodeIgniter and about this specific application.
Simple Task Board is a very simple tasks management app. It is intended for people like me, that don’t need the power of one of these complex tools and/or don’t want to pay for them. Besides that, it is just another task management tool, built from scratch, open source, that anyone can help giving ideas and playing with it. Maybe with the support of the community we can keep it simple, while addressing the most common issues.
After my one year trip to Australia I’m back to Brazil. It’s time to get this blog back to life. So, I’m going to start writing about a PHP application I did a few years ago called My Trip Emission. It is an application that give you the emission of CO2 of your trip, all you need is to define the model of your car and your trip (from and to). It is developed in pure PHP with jQuery and the Google Maps API.
After a long time since my last post, I’m going to start writing again. My focus on the next articles will be CodeIgniter. The first thing I want to show is how to integrate CodeIgniter with WordPress. More precisely, I’m going to show how to use WordPress users inside CodeIginter. The motivation for this is that you won’t need to handle user authentication inside your application.
In this article I’m going to show how to add custom information to your WordPress posts. We’ll start with the standard custom fields, very useful if you’re the theme developer and the only blogger. Next I’ll show you how to create your additional fields. They’re work pretty much like the custom fields, but you can add a name and description to them, so your theme users know what to write there. The last thing I’m going to show is the custom taxonomies added in WordPress 3.0.
