  1. Hi there, I'm learning PHP and working on building an ecommerce site using a MVC. I can display all six categories from the database on the index page however I only want to show four of these, as the links at the top will be the six categories. By using the next() method I can display all six categories: <?php while ($categories->next()) { ?> <section class="product"> <a href="products/<?= $categories->getURL() ?>"><h3 class="upper"><?= $categories->getName() ?></h3></a> <br/> <img src="<?= IMAGE_URL . $categories->getImage() ?>" style="width:80%; height:auto;" alt="Menu Tab"/> <h3 class="under"><a href="products/<?= $categories->getURL() ?>">SHOP NOW >></a></h3> </section> <?php } } } ?> I am wondering how to only extract certain products (each has a catID in the database). I thought the switch statement might be the answer and here was my attempt that did not work. I guess I am still not saying which catID to get but unsure how to fix this. Or is there another way not using switch? while ($categories->next()) { switch ($categories->getID()) { case 1: case 2: case 3: case 4: ?> <section class="product"> <a href="products/<?= $categories->getURL()?>"><h3 class="upper"><?=$categories->getName() ?></h3></a> <br/> <img src="<?=IMAGE_URL. $categories->getImage()?>" style="width:80%; height:auto;" alt="Menu Tab"/> <h3 class="under"><a href="products/<?= $categories->getURL()?>">SHOP NOW >></a></h3> </section> <?php break; default: return ""; } } } } ?> Any help would be greatly appreciated! Cheers
