GitHub and PHPClasses Projects

PHP SiteClass Mini Framework

This is a mini framework I have been using for almost 10 years. It has a database wrapper and a number of methods that make my life a lot easier.

For example every web page needs a <head> section and usually a <footer> as well as a <header> (navigation and banner). The framework makes these things easy to live with.

The database wrapper lets you use several popular database engines like 'mysql', 'mysqli', 'sqlite' and 'pod'. It is easy to use my framework with templeting engines like Twig.

This framework is not "All Things to All People" like a number of the well know frameworks try to be. This is a simple tool and therefore not nearly as complex as some of the popular frameworks out there.

If you just have three or four virtual hosted sites and you need a quick way to get everything working this is pretty easy.

The SiteClass framework is hosted at
GitHub and also at .
Give it a try and let me know if you like it.


UpdateSite Class

PHP Slide Show Class

This class can be used to present a slide show of images. It can extract lists of image files available on the local server or a remote Web server.

The image list is served to the browser which retrieves it with Javascript code that performs AJAX requests to obtain the images to display.

For local server images the class returns a list of image file names. For remote Web server, it retrieves a given remote page and parses it to return the list of GIF, JPEG and PNG images linked from that page.

The Javascript libraries provided within this package control the slide show presentation.

PHP MySql Slide Show Class

This package can be used to present a slide show from images listed in a database. The main class can retrieve lists of images to be displayed from a MySQL database table.
