Multiple pages created from textfile

Recommended Posts

Hi there!
In my guestbook it reads all entrys from a plain textfile.
Now I was wondering if theres any way to make it pages instead of them all in one page.
Like if entrys get over 25 it creates a new page with the other ones.
And if it then get over a total of 50 it ones again creates a new page.
The hard thing is for me to make it not print out the same entrys on every page.
PLease help...

read all the entries from the file into an array.

Then traverse the array in a loop with limits on(start at and stop at) you will then limit the number of entries displayed. Send these limits via the url (page.php?start=75&stop=100) and you should be fine.

Remember to initialize start and stop incase they are not set!!!!

That sounded like a good idea.
All my entrys start with [color=red]"<table"[/color] and end with [color=red]"</table>"[/color].
Can you help me how to do it more step by step?  ???

My guestbook is done so that it uses a textfile and not mysql.
Just because all people do not have acces to a mysql database.
So that solution is out of the question...
