Post subject:  designing an online exam website

hi folks,
its a while that i'm getting interested in web design.. so far i have got familiar with html, css and wordpress and joomla cms. i havnt started php yet but i'm planing to learn it in near future.. anyway, my main goal is to design an online exam website that registers members, presents multiple-answer questions to them with a given time limit, and offers detailed individual results afterwards.. the question is .. in case i finish learning php, what is the best approach or strategy for developing this website? should it be designed from scratch? or a combination with cms is better.?. or sth. i havnt thought of? any idea is appreciated..

It's simple enough that I think it would be good for you, if you're serious about PHP, to build from scratch. It'll teach you PHP, about databases, and you'll probably even learn some Javascript too. The quiz thing is a popular idea too so there should be a lot of material out there to read and to use for inspiration.

I agree with requinix. You'll learn the most by building it yourself from scratch, and trying to shoehorn it in to WordPress or some such will likely teach you some pretty bad habits.

Did you have anything specific in mind? On the one hand, you don't necessarily want to reinvent the wheel. On the other, the more you write yourself, the more you're going to learn. Even if that means how not to do certain things.

Looks like most of the work is already done for you.

Where is the value coming from and what is the goal here? If it's stored in a database, for example, you could just query it on load.
