Displaying links AS links...

Recommended Posts

I've created a simple link directory on my site (http://www.paulrawnsley.com/links.php) but cant figure out ho to make the 'link' entrys display as clickable links. Can anyone help?

this is the code to show the directory: [code]<?php
import_request_variables('p');
$user="XXXXXXX";
$pass="XXXXXXX";
$db="linkdb";

$link=mysql_connect("sql02",$user,$pass);
if (!$link) die ("Couldn't connect to MySQL server");
mysql_select_db($db,$link) or die("Couldn't connect to $db".mysql_error());

$query="SELECT * FROM linkdb ORDER BY `title` ASC";

$result=mysql_query($query,$link);               
print"<table align='center' width='100%' cellpadding='2' cellspacing='2' border='0'>";
print"<tr bgcolor='#b3cac5'>";
print"<font size='3'>";
print"<th>Title</th>";
print"<th>Link</th>";
print"<th>Description</th>";
print"</font>";
print"<tr>";
while ($row=mysql_fetch_row($result))
{
print"<tr>";
foreach($row as $field)
print"<td>$field</td>";
print"</tr>";
}
print"</table>";
?>[/code]

where you're using your foreach() to loop through your row, you'll need to adjust it to allow you to pull out the column for "link" and echo it slightly differently. let's say your column name for the actual link is simply "link", you could do something like this:
[code]
<?php
while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) {
  echo "<tr>\n";
  foreach ($row as $key => $val) {
    // now, let's see if it's the "link" column and show a link if it is
    if ($key == 'link') echo "<td><a href=\"$val\">$val</a></td>\n";
    else echo "<td>$val</td>\n";
  }
  echo "</tr>\n";
}
?>
[/code]

hope this helps
