View Full Version : Web-based School Information System

January 20th, 2008, 02:59 PM
Hi! I'm trying to set-up a web-based system for our school using Linux Apache/MySQL/PHP, and I would like to ask for your ideas.

There's centre-sis and focus-sis but they're postgresql based. I would prefer using MySQL.

Also, I would to ask about printing reports and forms from my system. I haven't tried this before and it would be very helpful if you could list down some tips or tricks on how to do this.

Thank you.

i believe so, you can,

there should be a method in the module where you can attach a static image.

here is an example :)

parang ganun na rin po, kaso to be specific, Student Information System, isang online Student Registration + some features like centre-sis or focus-sis. Just like online enrollment na ginagamit ng mapua.

If you're going to print reports and forms, and since this is web-based, you can print it directly from the browser, or use javascript to do this. You just have to get the data from the mysql and print it to the browser using php, align it correctly on the page, and print it using javascript.

If these are existing reports and forms just use a link for them to download and print it by their own application.

hope this helps.
