SellMix Blog:
PHP mistakes, misconceptions, bad practices and blatant no nos.
January 25, 2010 @ 11:05:34

From the SellMix blog today there's a new post with a few "no-nos" and misconceptions when it comes to working with PHP in your applications.

We have all had that moment where we looked back on a script that we wrote years ago and thought "what the hell was I thinking?'". But it is a process. You make mistakes, you learn from those mistakes and then you move on. From my experiences of modifying other people's code, helping people on PHP help forums and making my own (many) mistakes, I hereby present this list.

There's eleven points included in the list, touching on things like:

  • Superglobals being referred to inside class functions
  • MySQL queries inside loops
  • Brackets '" use them.
  • Indent, indent, indent!
  • Why are you using mysql_fetch_array?

Check out the rest of the post for more tips.
