A simple module?

Post by swingeyp » Fri Jul 11, 2008 2:12 pm

Hi I am just begining with modules. I have done the hello world and so understand the principles.

I want to be able to select an article id (up to 3) and then display them.

I am not a php programmer (coldfusion rules!! - lol) so I need some serious help here.

psuedo code
Choose the aricles

Article 1:
<input type="text" name="Art1">
Article 2:
<input type="text" name="Art2">
Article 3:
<input type="text" name="Art3">

Write this to a database table?


Display the articles
Get top 3 articles
from database table

Display article

Hmm something like that anyway. Can this be done with a module or will it need to be a component or both?

HELLLLPPPPP ....!

Regards - Paul

Am I asking the wrong questions? or postingin the wrong place. I never seem to get any replies to my posts. Does anyone actually read these forums? Does anyone know anywhere I can actually get help?

Try asking your question in the 1.5 developement forum which is a lot busier after the release of Joomla 1.5 and the principles will still be the same.
