Database Modelling Exam

Q & A – Third semester exam

Remember that the exam is a situation where YOU have to prove that YOU can write some server based code and use a database. So if you write a little plugin, that can use data from a database – designed via a normalized database model – then you are well off indeed.


— When we make the site on wordpress can we use blank theme to build the design on?

>> Develop a CHILD THEME and hand in your code for that. Then you can refer to the original theme as a source and demonstrate your own improvements. Here’s how to do it:
And the functions how to add content, do we have to program them by ourself
>> Yeah, that would be nice. In the lessons I have tought you how to do this.
— or we can use the functions that the theme has?
>> You can use them too.
And also the plugins, can we use plugins that are already made by someone or we have to program them also?
>> Yes and Yes.
