For 2023 - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.

Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!

I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))
Array Push to skip first line

Posted by Incipience (Incipience), 10 February 2008

I have come across a little PHP problem that I can seem to resolve, I know we discussed it in the course, however for the life of me I cant get it to work, I hope you can help.

The problem is I want to skip the first line of an array.

The Code:

$qr1=mysql_query("select * from news order by timestamps DESC LIMIT 3") or die("Error : " . mysql_error());

  <div id="boxtitle">
           <div id="boxtiteleft"></div>
           <div id="boxtitecenter">
           <div class="titlebox"><h1><a href="newsdetail.php?id=<? echo $rs1[Nid]; ?>"><? echo $rs1['Title'];  ?></a></h1></div>
           <div id="boxtiteright"></div>
<div id="contentbody">
           <div class="contentbody">
           <div id="picleft">
           <img src="img/sm.gif?>" width="104" height="116" class="border">
           <div id="contentright">
<div class="time"><? echo $rs1['Time'];  ?>, <? echo $rs1['Date'];  ?></div>
<? echo $rs1['Summary'];   ?><br><div id="readmorewhite"><a href="newsdetail.php?id=<? echo $rs1[Nid]; ?>">read more</a></div>
<br clear="all">

Playing the Devil's advocate, I'm afraid, I don't see an array there that's suitable for skipping over.   The only array in an associative one.

HOWEVER ... I think you may want to skip over the first result.  If that's the case ... first option:

$rs1=mysql_fetch_array($qr1); # Skip first result

or second option - change the limit clause to:

That LIMIT option worked a treat.. Many thanks.
