Not for beginners
on 26 May 2009
This book really is not for anyone with no PHP knowledge. Even basic PHP will not be enough. The problem is that the code supplied, to integrate SMARTY with the application, has bugs in it. These are not easily fixed. In my opinion, web designers with enough knowledge to use this book effectively will be able to achieve 90% of the objectives set out, by using forums and blogs freely available on the internet, if there are gaps in their knowledge.
There are some useful elements, on installing xammp etc but again these are not worth paying for.
