extract and display some html

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

i have created a latest news page here [a href=\"http://www.mitchellpage.com.au/latest_news.html\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.mitchellpage.com.au/latest_news.html[/a]

this is not stored in a database, i manually update this page.

i would like to put a php script within my homepage that extracts the html from this page but only shows the first 3 of these news stores. i guess it would need to count the number of BR's on the page or something.

does anyone know a simple script of php that will do this?

thanks guys!

look into preg_match()

and i suggest you put some kind of special marker of some kind at the beginning and maybe even at the end of each piece of news, as it would make it a lot easier for you to use preg_match
