Ok I am looking to make a website similar to <link removed> although the website at this moment is not 100% working. So I will explain.

It's a php website.
You have a type of search bar to enter in a email address or website. When you enter that email address or website a list comes up of people that have made comments about that person or website, but You cant just look at a list of the emails or websites, instead you have to somehow know the email by searching elsewhere or by someone personally giving it to you. then type it in the search bar then read about it so you cant just get all of the email's from the site they are almost protected in a way. Sorry if that does not make any sense.

I know html pretty well...
As for Php I do not. with my basic knowledge this looks like a fairly simple type of website to make. So where should I start? I do have dreamweaver cs3 as well.

Thank you all.
QUOTE Thanks

We're going to remove that link because:

Quote:
<link removed> uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate expired on 12/21/08 6:59 PM.

(Error code: sec_error_expired_certificate)
There's an immediate redirect to an SSL site with a bad certificate. Definitely something shady going on there.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I think a great starting place would be to learn php.

A redirect is often used to automatically move a browser on to another site, often shady, but not always, but not always to the site the user wanted to go to

AS for certificates, read this

Public key certificate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The site redirects from a standard HTTP site to a secure HTTP site (HTTPS). When you are connected to a secure HTTP site, the site issues a security certificate to encrypt communication with it. That security certificate is managed by a third party, which the site owner is required to renew with periodically. If the site owner does not, there's some risk that they may not be trustworthy.

Let me google that for you
