What are some of the essential things people look for in PHP Scripts these days ? First and foremost would be protection against SPAMMERS. You don't want to waste your time removing spams, it should be blocked. Next thing I generally seek, is connection to database only when needed. This way my script will be faster and hence my website. Moreover there are many website that do not use databases, but want to use PHP scripts.
If you are a PHP developer looking for above features, I suggest you checkout this collection of FREE and original PHP scripts site. Its by PHP Junkyard. In addition to PHP Scripts they also have PHP resources, a list of PHP books, free tutorials and some suggestions for PHP Hosting providers.
I was just checking out one of the scripts Guestbook. Guestbook is most commonly seeked feature especially for fledging websites. Their guestbook script is called GBook and yes it doesn't require a database to run. In addition to standard guestbook features, they also have a feature where visitors can post private guestbook messages that only you can read! This guestbook comes with IP banning, valid XHTML code, a bad words filter But the best part is Gbook's industry-leading anti-SPAM protection measures that include a visual Captcha image, an anti-SPAM logical question and a special JunkMark™ filter. You can completely customize the look of the guestbook. Try this one out and you can see that it certainly has an edge over others.
Another useful script you may want to try is the link exchange script. Now you can completely automate the link exchange process and save your valuable time. If you want Search engine rankings, you are mostly looking to exchange links. Their link exchange script is called Linkman - that doesn't need a SQL database to operate, it works with simple text files. You can also easily edit header and footer of the links page so it will completely fit into the rest of your website. You can also atuomatically block low ranking websites & nofollow websites. Isn't that cool.
After evaluating these scripts I am waiting for next update from PHP Junkyard. I am sure they will come out with some exciting features and scripts in future also. Guys this is the same website which used to offer HESK script before , which is now a totally separate and coveted free product. I like the overall quality and content of this site. You can get the required support in forums. So bookmark this site, what are you waiting for :) ?
PS: If you are looking for php related hosting, checkout the PHP Hosting page. It may help :)
