Take a look at www.cache-22.co.uk. Its got a basic blog system,
articles, comments etc... Uses PHP, mySQL and templates to make it all.
Its evolving over time (as does everything) and more things are being
added/improved but the main thing is that every page has a 'view source'
button so you can look at the PHP source of the page. Figure it would be
a good way
a:for people to learn by example
b:for me to get used to decent comments etc. as I know people will see
the code!
