This is simply a front end coded in PHP to a MySQL database. If I ever get the code cleaned up, I'll release it as a tarball for others to use.
That's fine -- go ahead and enter another review for it. That way, we can get a diversity of opinions about the books
Yup - HTML tags are converted to display as raw HTML. Sorry.
It's a cheap hack - when data is entered into the database, the single quotes cause an error to be returned. For now, I've just done a s/'/ /g on the form fields. If anyone has a better idea, just let me know!
I used the varchar data type for the review field in the database, and while it does take a small performance hit, you can enter in as long a review as an HTML form will allow. I think that's 32767 characters, but I could be wrong. The form will stop accepting data before the database will.
