Hi, I need some basic help. These div classes are how I want the php to display in view_msgs.php but right now it's just normal text. How can I include my styles in php? :)

this is index.php
[codebox]
<div style="position: absolute; left: 163px; top: 432px; width: 430px; background-color: transparent;">
<MTEntries lastn="7">
<?php @ require_once ("view_msgs.php"); ?>

<div class="style2">Date </div>
<div class="style3">Show new blog title</div>
<div class="style1">body of blog</div>
<div align="right">click to comment</strong></b><p>
</MTEntries>
</div>
[/codebox]

OK this is my index.php & view_msgs.php and it's not my script but I want to build off it to learn. But I seriously bought a new keyboard because I just dont understand.

I would like to thank you bdlt for your reply. Now in index.php I want to view the message. Can anyone show me how to do this and explain in a little note or something?

<div style="position: absolute; left: 163px; top: 432px; width: 430px; background-color: transparent;">
<MTEntries lastn="7">
<div class="style2">Date </div>
<div class="style3">Show new blog title</div>
<div class="style1">body of blog</div>
<div align="right">click to comment</strong></b><p>
</MTEntries>
</div>

<?php
  
  // include db file & functions
  include_once("class/db.inc.php");
  include_once("functions/functions.inc.php");
  
  // create new db object
  $db = new Blog_MySQL;
?>
<html>

  <title>Blog - messages</title>

  $i = 0;
  $link = "";
	
  // Display records
  while ($row = $db->_fetch_array($res_id)) {
	$code_array = get_msg_code();
	if ($code_array) {
	  if (in_array($row['blog_code'],$code_array)) {
		$link = "<a class=\"blog-link\" href=\"del_msg.php?code=" . $row['blog_code'] . "&amp;id=" .$row['blog_id'] . "\">delete</a>";
	  } else {

Hi l0st.en.Drago,

I'm a little confused(a normal state).

So do we want to simply show text as style2?
or did I miss the bus?

Basically, its a blog. So right now in the working version it shows:

Hello World(and this is the message)

1. let's start with the 'style' code
print "<tr class=\"row-style-" . row_style($i) . "\">\n";

try changing each row_style($i) to row_style[ $i ].

2. color:#777 is not a browser safe color. it may look ok with your browser but may be shown differently with another browser.

That's where this comes in because the style from the script is not the style I want.
<div style="position: absolute; left: 163px; top: 432px; width: 430px; background-color: transparent;">
 <MTEntries lastn="7"> 
 <div class="style2">Date </div>
 <div class="style3">Show new blog title</div> 
 <div class="style1">assadfkljdfjslkjfdlksjdf</div> 
 <div align="right">click to comment</strong></b><p> 
 </div>

Can I ask you a question? What is the difference from: row_style($i) to row_style[ $i ]. and does the period need to have a space? row_style[ $i ] . ??

ignore the period - it was part of the reply, not part of the code

if row_style() is a function defined in the included files, then leave it alone

it didn't occur to me at the time that it might be a function

let me look more at the style code and will get back with you later today(in 3-4 hours)

here's an example of style code using classes. 'style1' is similar to one of your DIVs.



[codebox]
print "<html><head>";
print '<style type="text/css"><!--';
print ".italic {font-style: italic}";
print ".style0 {font-weight: bold; color:cyan}";
print ".style1 {position: absolute; left: 163px; top: 232px; width: 430px; background-color: transparent; color: brown}";
print "--></style>";
print "</head><body>";
print '<P style="font-size: 12pt; color: fuchsia">style sheet example</p>';
print '<P style="font-size: 14pt; color: blue">style sheet example</p>';
print '<div style="font-size: 16pt; color: red">style sheet example</div>';
print '<div class="italic">style sheet example</div>';
print '<div class="style0">style sheet example</div>';
print '<div class="style1">style sheet example</div>';

print "</body></html>";[/codebox]

you are welcome.

to be clear - we want to:
1. remove all references to blog.css
2. remove all references to view_msgs
3. leave main.css alone

let me take a look. I will send a status report in 1-2 hours.
