Random question about a website

When I finish the rest of the web development track I really want to apply those skills into a project. The site secrettalk.com comes to mind. I don't want to clone it but just a rough idea, how would I got about that? As a feature and coding standpoint?

Thanks in advance.

Right click, 'View Source' for starters :)

If it's going to be comments and posts then it'll need to be database driven (MySQL) backed up with something like PHP to pull the content. You could try using some forum based software, and then build a front-end for it? Look at the Treehouse Forum as a perfect structure thinking about it - People add posts, and comments. Same idea (if I'm looking at the Secrets site correctly?).

That said, it's actually JavaScript, not PHP. Either would work I think. WordPress for example is a database of posts and comments, and that uses PHP alot.
