Separate a string into a list with PHP

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a field in a database table named "features". It has a value of:

feature1,feature2,feature3,feature4,feature5 (and so on)

I want to display the features in a bulleted list, like this:

[code]<li>feature1</li>
<li>feature2</li>
<li>feature3</li>
<li>feature4</li>
<li>feature5</li>
(And so on)
[/code]

Is there a way I can do this with PHP & Arrays? Can anyone show me a code example?

Thanks!

[code]
$sql = "SELECT * FROM `features` ORDER BY `id` ASC";
$result = mysql_query ($sql) or die (mysql_error());
while ($feature = mysql_fetch_array ($result))
{
  ?><li><?=$feature['feature_name']?></li><?
}
[/code]

my mistake

$db_feature is the field lets say

[code]
<?
$features = explode (",", $db_feature);
foreach ($features as $feature)
{
?><li><?=$feature?></li><?
}
?>
[/code]
