Hello.
I have this code:

[code=php:0]
<?php
 
  // Connection information
  $db_host = "localhost";
  $db_user = "**";
  $db_pass = "**";
  $db_name = "**";
 
  // Connect to server
  $dbac = mysql_connect($db_host,$db_user,$db_pass);
  $today = getdate();
 
  // Select database
  mysql_select_db ($db_name) or die ("Cannot connect to database");
 
  // Get date from _GET param or current date if not available
  $_GET['date'] = @trim(stripslashes($_GET['date']));
  $date = ($_GET['date'] && !empty($_GET['date'])) ? date('Y-m-d', strtotime(trim($_GET['date']))) : date('Y-m-d');
 
  $result = mysql_query('SELECT * FROM news WHERE Date = "' . $date . '" ORDER BY Time');
  $curtime = time();
  if ($result && mysql_num_rows($result)) {
    $numrows = mysql_num_rows($result);
    $rowcount = 1;
   
    while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result)) {
     
      while(list($var, $val) = each($row)) {
        extract ($row);
        print "<b>$Title</b><br />$News<br /><font size='2'>$Date &nbsp; $Time</font><br />";
      }
     
      print "<br />";
      ++$rowcount;
    }
  }
 
?> 
[/code]

I have a table (called news) in a MySQL database with 5 fields: (News, Title, Date, Time). The code works. However, when I display the results, it shows the same thing 5 times.

This is what shows:

How can I make it so that it only shows a news post ONCE?

PS: I think it's because of the extract($row) thing.

Your mkaing it a little more complicated then need be.

[code=php:0]
while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result)) {
  print "<b>{$row['$Title']}</b><br />{$row['News']}<br /><font size='2'>{$row['Date']} &nbsp; {$row['Time']}</font><br /><br />";
}
[/code]
