So there I was, looking at some other websites out there (because I think my site design sucks. Thanks, me). One of the things that virtually no blogs do is promote specific content. In other words, highlight content that is most popular over a certain time frame. So I was thinking to myself, how would I do that? One option would be to have a database table that could record each click. That, however, is boring and requires changes to my DB schema (evil!). What I want to do is take my most popular pages of the last week and highlight them at the top of the web site.
I recently posted an image on why you shouldn’t put phpinfo() calls in your code.
There were a couple of comments from people asking “why not?”
Here’s why not.
Go to Google
Search for inurl:phpinfo
Check out the results
At the time of writing there were 4 pages on the first result page that were broadcasting their settings.
Here’s another fun one. Search for “inurl:phpinfo root”. Lots more.
There’s a bunch of information that you will see.
