Search Engine Script

Recommended Posts

Hello

I have a search engine script, which has used paging, and this works fine.  What I need is a snippet of code to display a message such as "no results found" if the query returns nothing.  I have tried several things, such as if's and using variables, but none of them work completly.  I am pretty OK with php but this has got me stuck.

is there a very easy way to check is the '$row' is empty after doing the query (sample code below):

$row=mysql_fetch_assoc($result);

I am sorry fi this is confusing, if it is, please say! Im desperate for help!

Thanks

Mark

What about:

[code]<?php
if(mysql_num_rows($result)==0){
echo("No results");
}
else{
//echo results here
}
?>[/code]

Orio.
