PHP/MySQL - Result on same line


Recommended Posts

Hello, i created this script for a client and have ran into an annoying error with the results displaying on a new line for each result instead of side by side, any help is welcome :D




				  $subcat = mysql_real_escape_string(strip_tags(htmlspecialchars(protect($_GET['subcat']))));
				  $cat =  mysql_real_escape_string(strip_tags(htmlspecialchars(protect($_GET['cat']))));
$sql = @mysql_query("SELECT * FROM cakes WHERE category =\"$cat\" AND sub_cat=\"$subcat\" ORDER BY id DESC");
while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($sql)) {
$reference = $row['reference'];
$image = $row['image'];
echo ("<p><img src='./images/cakes/$image' height='289px' width='177px' alt='IMAGE OF CAKE'></img><br />");
echo ("<b>Reference:</b>$reference"."</p>");
if (!$reference) {
echo 'There are no cakes in this category yet.';


I know the errors only going to be something small i'm missing, but i've been coding all day :P

ever think of using a table?

$html = '<table><tr>';
$cols = 3;// can be any size you want
$x = 0;
while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($sql)) 
$reference = $row['reference'];
$image = $row['image'];
$html .= '<td>';
$html .= '<p><img src="./images/cakes/'.$image.'" height="289px" width="177px" alt="IMAGE OF CAKE"></img><br />';
$html .= '<b>Reference:</b>'.$reference.'.</p>';
$html .= '</td>';
if ($x == $cols)
	$html .= '</tr><tr>';

if (!$reference) 
$html .= '<td>There are no cakes in this category yet.</td>';
echo $html;
