I want to try coding different types of sites and learn more about different types of coding as I only really know HTML properly, although I have used many codes for other languages. I was looking at fanfiction.net and fictionpress.com and wondering how they work. I am aware that what I'm about to ask is quite complex and possibly not as simple as someone just telling me the codes, but I basically want to recreate the sites I mentioned and then maybe adapt them.
There are a few features that they use that I want to know how to code. I don't just want to know the coding language as that's not enough to start recreating the sites. Really any codes that you can give, or parts of codes, would be really great and if possible links to the correct coding/tutorials or an idea of exactly what I should google.
Sorry if this is quite long...
First, when someone adds a chapter for a story it goes into a certain category and has other options (e.g. age rating or whether the story is complete) that are shown. What code would be needed to do this?
Second, when someone adds another chapter to a story the chapter is on a new page with a link to the previous chapter and a link on the previous chapter to the next chapter. What code would be needed to upload this new chapter to the story and link it?
Third, all the new stories and updates are shown on one page. What code is needed to do this?
Fourth, under each category you can filter chapters by rating and other options. I found a bit of information about this on Google, but if anyone has any information it would be helpful.
Fifth, they have a statistics page for each member for all the stories they have written. This shows the title, visitors, number of reviews, word count, number of chapters etc. How would I do this?
Finally, all the stories a member has written are shown on the members profile. How would I do this?
I want as much information on all of these as possible.
