Hi Henry.

In my opinion, if I had to pick from the options you said, you should go with RAD PHP. It has many issues solved.
The problem is that its not so good for front-end, its very good for designing and implementing back-end solutions though.

Check this tutorial, and this, also check out youtube videos.

Hope this helps

Hi CodedK

Thnak you for your feedback.  I was out of office but will work through your references.  Do you by any chance have sample code of a simple web site in RAD PHP, that I can load, run to see it working and pull apart?

Hey Henry.

I've searched Google for more tutorials but I cant find anything of value.
You should reconsider using this tool for building websites though.
Its gonna be your starting point so you should start with the right directions.

With Embarcadero tool you cant even produce a valid XHTML markup complete with template-driven CSS stylesheet linkages! That's why I mentioned the front end before. Client really doesn't care how the back end has been build.

If you download EasyPHP for example and a simple text editor supporting PHP, you would be in the right direction. And when you see how fast it is to build a website you would expect Rad Studio to do the same and more or at least the most basic of needs.
Sadly, you would be wrong, and sadly disappointed!

If you still want tutorials I think its a matter of time. Just wait.

CodedK, thank you for your inputs.  Pointing me away from creating a web site in RAD XE is valuable as it saved me time to try out things that may not have worked.  In addition to that, the links and YouTube videos that you provided are useful to me in answering other questions, getting started in RAD XE, therefore you deserve the points.
