I have a template class that I wrote (following a tutorial I found) that I am using for a website I am creating.

What I need to do is select everything from a table and then display each row from the DB in it's own row in an HTML table. I have template tags set up for each cell in the db table, like so:

<tr>
  	   <td><a href="{edit_link}">Edit</a></td>
  	   <td>{title}</td>
  	   <td>{poster}</td>
  	   <td>{date_posted}</td>
  	 </tr>

A standard while look does not seem to work, since it does not produce the desired output. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can go about this? I am sorry if I am being vague. It's late, and I need some sleep. If you need more information let me know and I will post the information.

Does your template class support loops? That is your problem.

Would you be able to provide any information on how I could accomplish this?

You might want to look at getting your hands on a prebuilt template engine that supports loops. Building something like this isn't going to be explained easily within a forum reply.

That's what I figured. I have downloaded Smarty. Luckily it should be easy enough to chage my current scripts over to smarty. Thank you!
