on one page i have all the entries from a data base displayed with a "short" descrption and a link to the long description.
what i would like to do is when the link is clicked it opens a window with just that entry to the database.
i assumed that this would work
<a href="../inc/showfull.php?id=<? echo $id; ?>">
this generates the desired effect. the source code for the page reads
with the number after the = sign changing in each href depending on the db entry.
but the link doesn't only show that entry. I get all the entries in the database.
Would someone be so kind as to explain how to dynamically get only one entry based on the id number of the entry. or at least point me where i need to go for the information.
Thanks in advance.
