big help needed-possibly someone to write some php code.

Recommended Posts

im trying to make a "ten newest videos" page on my site that looks at my videos folder and detects which videos are the newest to have arrived in the folder and then display the links or wahetever on the "ten newest videos" page.

i have looked over different sites but being a noob to all this i dont have a clue.

I don't suppose someone can possibly help or even write a script for me?

i would then b able to learn from it hoefully and help myself more in the future.

thanx

If you want someone to write this for you, let me or another mod know and your post will be moved to our freelancing forum. If you want to give it a go yourself, you could look up the following functions in the manual:

glob() - To get the conents of a directory, loop through the output with a foreach() loop.
filemtime() - To get the time/date that the file was last modified on.

You can chuck all of the returned data into an array, sort it by the date/time and only use the first 10 keys.

If you're looking for someone to write the script, please post in the Freelancer's Forum.

^ Check the PHP manual. You can download it at php.net and it has examples, how to use it, syntax, and user comments for ways they've used it. Very useful.
