Enhance your in-house PHP CMS with jQuery using Packt's new book

Packt is pleased to announce CMS DEsign Using PHP and jquery, a new book that describes how to use PHP, MySQL, and jQuery to build an entire CMS from the ground up, complete with plugin architecture, user management, template-driven website design, and an installer. Written by Kae Verens, this book is a step-by-step explanatory tutorial to get your hands dirty in building your own CMS.

PHP is a widely used, general-purpose scripting language that was originally designed for web development to produce dynamic web pages, whereas jquery is a fast and concise JavaScript Library that simplifies HTML document traversing, event handling, animating, and Ajax interactions for rapid web development.

CMS Design Using PHP and jquery helps developers to leverage the power of PHP and jquery by building a core CMS, which can be used for most projects without needing to be changed. They can add custom plugins that can then be tailored to the individual project as well as create their own plugin architecture.

Through this book developers will learn how panels work, and use them to make flexible drag-and-drop layouts with widgets. They will also learn how to create an installer, using virtual machines for the test environment of their CMS. This step-by-step explanatory tutorial would help them enhance their administration forms using jQuery as well as manage users, using e-mail verification, hashes, and captchas.

Web developers who have written multiple scripts or websites and want to combine PHP with jquery in order to effectively create a large project that is user-friendly and flexible, would find this book an interesting and beneficial read. This book is out now and available from Packt. For more information please visit www.packtpub.com/cms-design-using-php-and-jquery/book
