After posting 7 questions on Stack Overflow, and various searching on YouTube and other sites, as well as input from several colleagues, I've been able to solve my issues with PHP, Dreamweaver CS3, Xampp, and the ability to test the use of PHP includes on my localhost server. It took approximately 1 week to gather all the information necessary to actually get it up and running smoothly.
I'm wondering if there is a place here on Stack Overflow where someone such as myself might provide/post a somewhat comprehensive solution to this problem for someone in the future so that they don't have to ask 7 questions on the site and seek a weeks worth of assistance from various other sources, as I have needed to?
I respect the process here, as it's been helpful to me. Just wondering how we might go about contributing larger suggestions on how to solve bigger problems such as integrating a number of elements together, as was the case here?
Would it be acceptable to just post my final solution, rather than asking a question?
