Doug Hockinson's primary focus is on a custom content management system which offers a wide range of features and is deployed on more than 100 websites. Each web page is comprised of text or HTML markup entered in various fields in a MySQL™ database table. The PHP scripting language is used to retrieve the properties of the requested page ID and send a compressed HTML document to the web browser, on-the-fly. No static HTML pages exist in the system.
