Using Php To Display Unordered List

Nov 20, 2005

I have a (MySQL-)database table with columns like:

id ¦ study ¦ parent_id

How do I display (using php) a tree that looks like this:

<li>category A</li>
<li>sub category A-1</li>
<li>sub category A-2</li>
<li>sub category A-3</li>
<li>category B</li>
<li>sub category B-1</li>
<li>sub category B-2</li>
<li>category C</li>
<li>sub category C-1</li>
<li>sub category C-2</li>


Create Unordered List Tree Menu From Data Stored In An Table With The Adjacency List Model?

Mar 24, 2010

I need to create a tree menu of "nth" subcategories. I settled on using the adjacency list model for my table structure, because I won't be updating this table very much and this seemed the easiest to implement for my use. I want to style the output using "ul" and "li" tags...I already have a css and jquery solution to do the styling. My problem comes from pulling the data out of the database and using a recursive function via PHP to build the list ... the list is a concatenated string that gets parsed to build the tree. I'm really having a hard time getting the closing "ul" and "li" tags to line up just where they need to be.

Here's my table structure: portfolio_id (int), p_name (varchar), parent_portfolio_id (int) Here's what I want the data to look like when presented:

<li>Portfolio Name
<li>Sub portfolio A

Wrap Every 5 Results In Unordered List?

Nov 12, 2010

I have an array containing a "Variable" amount of results/entries.

I use foreach as normal to echo the array results.

Problem: I want to wrap every 5 results from the array in Unordered list.

I do not know the total number of results since it's variable. So for example if it contains 18 items. It should display 4 ULs, the first 3 ULs containing 5 results and the last UL contains only the remaining 3 items.

Html - Add Dynamic Classes To An Unordered List?

Jun 8, 2011

I'm trying to add consecutive classes to all list-items in a list with the class of 'nav'. Essentially, I want every list-item to have a class of 'nthChild-x', where x represents its position in the list. I'm a major noob to PHP, so be easy.

Here is the current markup:

<ul id="primaryNav" class="nav">
<li>Blah Blah Uno</li>
<li>Blah Blah Dos</li>
<li>Blah Blah Tres</li>

I want this list to be rendered as the following:

<ul id="primaryNav" class="nav">
<li class="nthChild-1">Blah Blah Uno</li>
<li class="nthChild-3">Blah Blah Dos</li>
<li class="nthChild-3">Blah Blah Tres</li>

I know how to do this with JS but need this to be server-side. Also, I don't necessarily want to target the ID of the list because I'd rather do it once and target all lists (though that could be a start).

How Can Strip The Text Bullet And Then Make That Copy An Unordered List In The HTML?

Apr 4, 2006

I have some text coming into a web page from a MySql DB that contains bullets in the copy. The copy cannot be changed as it is also used in a Quark Xpress document we have connected to the DB. So, my question is how can strip the text bullet and then make that copy an Unordered list in the HTML?

This is what I have but and does the indents like a list but no bullets (I guess they are being stripped by the str_replace as well?

echo str_replace(Chr(13), "<p>", ("<ul>".str_replace('•', '', $bulletcontent1)."</ul>"));

Drupal - List Of Events With A List Of Timestamps, Grouped By Hour In A Tabular Display?

Oct 8, 2010

While refactoring, I am looking for an optimised algorithm for a timetable (calendar) in PHP. I have a list of events which have a list of timestamps. This must be presented in a tabular way. The current code works, but has a) quite some quircks and is b) very inflexible. I am looking to refactor this piece and looking for input on optimised ways.

Example here, notice the header of the table bearing the hours. And the times within that hour being grouped in that column. One event, having two timestamps in one hour can be ignored (may only happen in theory, as per the technical docs)

The table is built with Drupals theme_table(), which I can build up from any array, bearing arrays for each row. the Drupal part, however, is of little interest here :)

Current code (snippets):

//inside function that builds the content for the page linked to above:
$this_morning = _playdates_get_start_of_day_with($timestamp);
$this_night = _playdates_get_end_of_day_with($timestamp);
$nodes = _playdates_load_all_in_range($types, $this_morning, $this_night);
usort($nodes, '_playdates_cmp_titles');
//we now have a list of "nodes", being the events listed in the first column, which have
// a list of playdates, the timestamps. $node->nid is a unique id for each event.
foreach ($nodes as $node) {

Move Next With Unordered ID Column?

Jul 30, 2010

I'm trying to move to the next record in a query using php/MySQL A simplified query is below:

$result = mysql_query("SELECT id FROM table ORDER BY datefield, id ASC");
$row = mysql_fetch_object($result);
$id = $row->id;

This simply selects the table data and orders it by a date field first, then id.Normally, if the query was only ordered by ID, we could be assured that the ID was increasing as we move forward row by row. If this was the case, to get the next row I would use:

$next_result = mysql_query("SELECT id FROM table WHERE id > '$id' ORDER BY id ASC LIMIT 1
$next_row = mysql_fetch_object($next_result);
$next_id = $next_row->id;

This normally works perfectly, however the problem here is that the primary order of the initial query is by a date field, then ID. The date field does not necessarily have any relation to the order of the ID

That means that you can get data ordered like this:

Date | ID
2010-08-01 | 1
2010-08-01 | 4
2010-08-02 | 3
2010-08-02 | 2

You can probably see the problem here.. we cannot move next by simply getting the next highest ID in the query because the ID is not in increasing order.

Display List Of Logged In Users

Jan 16, 2007

I'm making a small website that includes a user login/logout feature. Its a friendly site and isn't anything fancy. What I'm working on now is to display a list of all the users that are currently logged in the website. The system I'm using now is basically a table ("current_users") that contains all the usernames of users that have successfully logged in. The table would fill as users logged in and empty as users log out. The problem is what if the user never clicks "logout" (and thus never executing the script that removes that user from the table), but simply closes the browser? The table would then never have a chance to remove that user from an "logged in" status.

Recursive List - Get The Second Level To Display

May 25, 2010

I am trying to display a recursive list in PHP for a site I am working on. I am really having trouble trying to get the second level to display. I have a function that displays the contents to the page as follows.

function get_menu_entries($content,$which=0)
global $tbl_prefix, $sys_explorer_vars, $sys_config_vars;
$db = new DB_Tpl();
$curr_time = time();
$db->query("SELECT * FROM ".$tbl_prefix."sys_explorer WHERE preid = '".$which."' && config_id = '".$sys_explorer_vars['config_id']."' && blocked = '0' && startdate < '".$curr_time."' && (enddate > '".$curr_time."' || enddate = '') ORDER BY preid,sorting");

At the moment the content displays properly, however I want to turn this function into a DHTML dropdown menu. At present what happens with the level 2 elements is that using CSS the contents are indented using CSS. What I need to happen is to place the UL tag at the beginning and /UL tag at the end of the level 2 elements.

Say I had a list of products with the following attributes right?

productid = 1 (smallint(3))
productname = "Product 1" (varchar, to reduce space)
price = 25.99 (double, more precise for currency?) -

But say this spanned out to say 6 products per line on the user viewing the page.

With then 5 rows down.

product1 | product2 | product3 | product4 | product5 | product6
product7 | product8 | product9 | product10 | product11 | product12

And so on until all products have been displayed right?

How would I do this theoretically in PHP to limit that no of results per row?

Always been confused on how this is doable, want to eventually construct my own ecommerce, really get into the nuts and bolts of it.
