Every so often someone (usually a high rep user) will post a link to a “definitive guide” that was constructed by the community. For example:
- Reference - What does this symbol mean in PHP?
- How to prevent SQL injection in PHP?
- The definitive guide to forms based website authentication
I suspect there are many others like these.
Guides like those listed above are extremely useful, but I've been coming across them by chance. Is there a convenient list of these guides or “suggested reading list” somewhere? If not, may I suggest we create one and put the link somewhere that's easy to find. Since the FAQ has been replaced with "help" in the main menu, perhaps something like this would be an appropriate FAQ. (Questions that are really frequently asked.)
