I’m trying to display some thumbnail images I have via a mysql query.

The problem I have though is in trying to achieve a certain layout.

I want a row of three individual items then another three underneath and so on. 

basically a replica of this…… http://www.templatem...thor=0&x=24&y=8

What I’ve always been used to in the past is outputting one item per row, where as this would be three database rows in one html table row. 

is there possibly abit of code that could put in a line break each time three items are displayed.

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($query))
        // abit of code here to put in a line break after 3 items
      echo row[‘item’];

Or perhaps someone could suggest another way.

  $count = 0;
   while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($query)) {
       if ($count == 3) {
          //do your line break
          $count = 0;

       echo row['item'];

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
