Simple Question!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

At the moment, when my webpage retrives data from the database, the results list themselves side by side, like this:

T-Shirts Posters Calenders

As this is for the navigation, I need them to be listed downwards, like this:

T-Shirts
Posters
Calenders

Can anyone tell me how to do this?

This is my code for the php I'm inserting:

[code]<?


$sql = "SELECT category_id, category_name
        FROM categories
        ORDER BY category_name";
$res = mysql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());
while (list($id, $cat) = mysql_fetch_row($res)) {
    echo "<a href='details2.php?id=$id'>$cat</a>\n";
}

echo <<<_HTML

$list

_HTML;

?>[/code]

\n will only create a new line in the sense of source. If you look at the source of your page you will see that T-Shirts Posters Calenders are all on a different line. To visually see this line you must use HTML, AKA </br /> :p
