STARTING NEWBIES AND DESIGNERS

Link1: Starting and growing with processwire.

https://processwire.com/talk/topic/3990-another-simple-photo-gallery-tutorial/page-4#entry61069

Link2: I am basically a designer with some programming skills. My question is this:

Can I go ahead to use processwire for this even though i am still learning php.

NEWBIES FIRST CODING QUESTIONS

link1: Using a default install, I'm stepping through the tutorials, templates, etc and trying to understand the basic concepts behind processwire and at this point in time "head.inc" &  "foot.inc".
http://processwire.com/talk/topic/3421-footinc/

Link2: I am puzzled why some html tags are starting in head.inc but don't end in head.inc
Instead they are ended in foot.inc
http://processwire.com/talk/topic/3388-question-about-headinc-and-footerinc/

Link3: Question about not using ?> in processwire
http://processwire.com/talk/topic/3370-question-about-missing/
 

Link4: After you installed processwire, it comes with a default website. What is the best way to fill in your own website ? How do you replace the default processwire website with your own ?
http://processwire.com/talk/topic/3379-how-to-fill-in-your-own-website/
 

Link5:How much extra work/time will I have to put in, as far as understanding and writing php and getting the hang of the PW system, just to be able to create the same responsive designs I would make in HTML/CSS/Javascrip, while also achieving the easiest type of content editing capabilities (in line with what you can get with a CushyCMS type product)?  
http://processwire.com/talk/topic/3961-new-to-cms/

Link6: I realize what I am confused about was really something quite basic,  such as where are the snippets of php code go beside on templates?  Can they go on a page as the value of body field for example?
http://processwire.com/talk/topic/3383-back-to-basic/
 

Link7: I'm stuck in something that should be very simple.

.HTACCESS EXAMPLES ON YOUR HOSTING SERVER

Example1:
A working .htaccess file. The issues were that the .htaccess file must
exist on the server before installing processwire and that the server
did not allow options in the .htaccess file. After fixing that
processwire could be installed on the server without any problem. Note
that such restrictions might be different on your server that you need
to find in the faq of your host.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?q=$1 [L,QSA,NC]

Great! Thanks for setting this up.

We probably want to tweak the title of the thread a bit? E.g., not everybody will understand what "tutos" are :D, especially those not very comfortable with English. Maybe something like "Links to PW tutorials, code snippets and resources" ? I am not good at this so will let you and others improve it  :P

In an ideal world, all these links plus others should be in your first post. This saves people from scrolling searching for links down below. However, that would mean all such links contributed by others are sent to you (or a mod) to edit and include in the first post. It could end up being one long first post though. The rest of the posts below the first would be for talk, discussions, etc.. :)

Simply PM me the links and I will add, categorize them and give them a description.

OK. So, maybe move your links and descriptions in post #3 to post #1 and place them right after you describe what this thread is about. Thanks

Edit: In the first post (#1), also add what you say in post#5 - for members to PM useful links which you will then add to post#1 :)

Sorry, too many suggestions on my part! I'm just being picky ;)

As the links grow, we will probably it would be good to divide them (if possible) according to whether they are links to tutorials or code snippets or resources. Something like this:

Tutorials

Topic

Link 1 blah blah

Description

etc


Code Snippets

Topic

link 1 etc

Description etc


Resources

Topic

link 1 etc - e.g. link to a blog, docs, etc

Description etc.

As a newbie, this post is gold! 

Can't believe I didn't see it earlier despite numerous checks of the FAQ forum. I only noticed it after doing an advanced search for siste:processwire tutorial updated in the last month

Thanks so much for such an organised collection of information..

Is it a candidate for a sticky?

Thanks, yes the forum is full of useful but scattered posts and when I have the time I try to sort them out.

Next step could be to put everything in a database with a nice front end.

What a great and useful effort! This deserves its own section of the forum where everyone can see it. Hopefully this list will only improve with time, care, feeding, watering, etc...
