Online Magazine Management System in PHP with Free Source Code

Language

This is a PHP project entitled Online Magazine Management System. This is a web-based application developed using PHP Language and MySQL Database. This application provides an online platform for Magazines Publishers to share their published magazines online so their readers can browse online. This is a sort of Content Management System (CMS) application. The main purpose of this project is to give an idea to the IT/CS students or self-learners in PHP Language on how to develop a web application like this. It has user-friendly functionalities and a pleasant user interface using AdminLTE Template and Bootstrap (CSS Framework).

I developed the project using the following:

  • XAMPP v3.3.0 as my local webserver that has a PHP Version 8.0.7
  • PHP Language
  • MySQL Database
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • jQuery
  • Ajax
  • Bootstrap
  • AdminLTE Template
  • and more...

About the Online Magazine Management System

The Online Magazine Management System has 2 user roles aside from the public/visitors. The 2 user roles are the Administrator and the Author/Registered User. These user roles are sharing the same Front-End Panel to manage the data in the system. The Admin Users have access to all features and functionalities of the system while the Author/Registered Users can only manage the data of the magazine they created. When the author submits an article about a certain magazine, the article will be saved but not published to the public at first. The admin is in charge of verifying the articles if whether the article should be published or not. This application has a comment section that allows the visitors and users to leave a message or feedback on each magazine's article. The comment section also works like the magazines whereas the submitted comments of non-registered users require an admin verification. Talking about the magazine details, the author can upload magazine cover images, add content/description, and upload a pdf file of the magazine. Magazines' articles are organized by category.
