Building a Multi-Page Article System With ASP/PHP
(Page 1 of 6 )

When I originally started constructing the backend for devArticles.com from my bedroom in early 2001, I never intended to use it as the basis of a commercial product.

I remember launching devArticles.com "officially" in November of 2001 to about 3 friends on ICQ and a couple more on mIRC. Back then it was just me. It wasn't much, but it was fun because it was my first ever attempt to create a web site that would serve as both a knowledge base for programmers and as a source of income to get me out of my job, which was developing and designing the TechBuy web site.

A couple of months after I launched devArticles.com, things were going smooth and a friend wanted a login to the backend admin area to see how I was adding articles. I gave him access and he really liked the way you could add an article with up to 20 pages in it. He told me that I should tweak the backend and spruce it up a bit to sell it as a commercial product.

I did. This was the birth of SiteWorksPro, which has gone on to sell close to 1,000 copies since we released it about 9 months ago. Anyway, I ended up showing this mult-article capability of SiteWorksPro to a lot of people and they all wanted to know how they could implement something like this into their web projects.

Hence the writing of this article. Today I will be showing you how to build a multi-page article system which you can either use on its own, or integrate into your content management systems.

I will explain everything generally, and then show coding and database examples for PHP/MySQL and ASP/SQL Server 2000. You can choose which examples you’d like to follow.

Anyhow, let's get on with the article, shall we?...
