Join Kevin Skoglund for an in-depth discussion in this video Output dynamic text, part of PHP Essential Training.
- [Instructor] If you remember back to the introduction…where I talked about why you'd want to use PHP.…The real power of PHP comes from the ability…to output dynamic text.…That's what makes it different than just an HTML website.…If for example we have an auction website,…and a new item has been posted for sale,…it gets stored in the database.…PHP goes and grabs it out of the database,…and now the HTML page that the user sees is different…than what it was a few minutes ago.…This new item has been dynamically added to the page.…So we're going to start looking at how…we can output dynamic texts,…and we're going to start really simple…by just outputting a few words.…
And then we'll build up to being able to pull…things from the database and to actually output…more elaborate stuff.…To start with we're going to learn the most important…PHP that you need to know,…which is the echo command or function.…Echo is just simply going to return whatever we say…back to the user.…It's like an echo.…We say something,…that's what gets echoed back to the user…
