New Title Released

That's right, I have another title up on today, Dynamic Development Using ASP and Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004

The description: "Dynamic Development Using ASP and Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004" with Daniel Short is a movie-based tutorial designed to familiarize Dreamweaver MX 2004 users with dynamic development using Microsoft Active Server Pages (ASP). The training begins with a brief introduction to database design and best practices, then shows you how to use Dreamweaver's built-in server behaviors to create a blog application with an administrative backend. Exercise files accompany the training, allowing you to follow along and learn at your own pace.

The movie walks you through building your own mini-blog, covering everything from the initial database design to handling user comments and user authentication in the blog admin area. You'll learn how to use just about every bit of dynamic functionality in Dreamweaver MX 2004 (much of which is applicable to Dreamweaver MX as well).

Check out the samples online and let me know what you think.

Well actually, the entire series walks you through creating the blog... As far as specific sites that help you create a blog, there's not much I could point you to there. A blog encompasses (in some small manner) just about every thing you need to know to get started learning ASP and dynamic development in general.

Hi Dan, Fantastic tutorial, I have one slight problem with the application though. If I upload a post or comment on the blog that contains hyperlinks <a href> within the text into the database, I cannot seem to display them properly (i.e. as links)again when asp spews them out...I been looking all around and can't find the answer to this . Could you help me on this. what I am looking for is simply to display links in the output...just like you have done in some of the blog-postings. Again...would be very thankful for a response

So long as you're inputting the code correctly, and it's not getting encoded (i.e, getting changed to &lt;) there shouldn't be any problem with putting tags directly into your database.
