beginner question-- newest 5 entries

Recommended Posts

I\'m making an automated link directory to kinda teach myself php and mySQL. I want to make a \"newest five links\" thing on the main page. I know how to select the information from the table, etc, and that I should include ORDER BY id DESC so that the entry with the highest number will appear first. I just can\'t figure out how to make it stop after 5. Help for the newbie? *hopeful look*

you could add the LIMIT 5 clause. i think this limits the results to 5 rows.
