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

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
