I am a relative newbie to php programming but have so far managed to build some quite complex sites, however this stumps me.
I'm creating a website to display pieces of writing a writing group
I have set up a MySQL database, with, amongst others, a large
field that contains the actual piece of writing. The writing is stored
as text in a medium blob.
My problem is that some of the pieces of writing are quite large and
need to be displayed over several pages. However, I don't know how to split a single field over several pages.
Obviously the repeat region, which has the recordset paging, will not
work but I was wondering if it would be altered and using some php functions to count the words or lines and a loop to create the pagination.
Can anyone explain how to do this? Or are there any extensions or
articles that might help?
