?Preview of string?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.
How do i create a preview of a string? Like if i bring something from a mysql db, the string name is $fetchbookmark['url']. But that string is too long to fit into the cell i want it to. So what i want to do is to take like the first 50 chrs for example of that string and just show them. Ive seen it on forum scripts and such so i know its possbile. Just not sure how to do it myself.

Thanks in advance,
Dave

I can sleep, im just gettin quite obsessed with php at the mo. I started learnin it for about a year and then took a break for about a year and now im gettin back into it.
Only problem ive got is i need projects so that i can work on something to really test myself if ya know what i mean.
