1st Problem: Here's the problem. I have two rows of information in an sql. Now I would like the program to read the first row, output it, and then read the next one. However, I would like for the information that is being displayed to stay on the screen for at least 20 seconds. Therefore, I need a timer of some sort. Can anyone help me.?

2nd Problem: Once the sql has read all the rows from the top, how many times can you have the sql read?

firstly, this should probably be in the programming forum...

1st problem:
php is server-side, you cannot have it do anything on the client computer, youd have to use JavaScript fo that... something like this:
Code: [ Select ]
setTimeout("window.location.href = targetURL", 200000);

that will redirect the page to the page 'targetURL' after 20 seconds...

second problem:
the 'mysql_fetch_row' is self-progressive (thats pro'lly not the right term, but thats what it does) every time you use it on you sql result, it progresses to the next row returned.

PHP Code: [ Select ]
$sql = mysql_db_query($database, $sqlQuery);
$row1 = mysql_fetch_row($sql); //returns first row
$row2 = mysql_fetch_row($sql); //returns second row
$row3 = mysql_fetch_row($sql); //returns third row
  2. $sql = mysql_db_query($database, $sqlQuery);
  6. $row1 = mysql_fetch_row($sql); //returns first row
  8. $row2 = mysql_fetch_row($sql); //returns second row
  10. $row3 = mysql_fetch_row($sql); //returns third row
  12. ...

like that...
