I hope this doesn't make me seem too stupid, but I just found this while goofing around in the PHP manual...

An alphabetical list of all PHP functions

This just seems unusually handy. As always, if this post is not appropriate, MODS, do what you will with it.

EDIT | I think the link above is dead. Please use this link instead: http://www.php.net/manual/en/indexes.php

No Everah, you're good. That index is surprisingly difficult to find. Good post.

What about CHEAT SHEETS

Post by ronverdonk »

Maybe you alle know this, but for all beginners and not-so-beginners: there is a website that has excellent so-called "cheat sheets". These are short, 1 page overviews of the most important parts of a product.

They are FREE, downloadable and availble in PNG and PDF formats. There are cheat sheets for e.g.
  • PHP
    MySql
    CSS
    HTML tags
    RGB colors
    Ruby on Rails
    mod_rewrite
    and some more
You can get them at http://www.ilovejackdaniels.com/cheat-sheets/

They do not apply to PHP directly, as this is a thread specifically for the PHP board on our server.

If you look in the Useful resources of many of the forums, the ILoveJackDaniels cheat sheets are already listed. The PHP one is referenced in the second post of this very thread. I believe the mod_rewrite one is listed in the Apache, IIS and Servers forum as well. Just an FYI.
