Php Echo Numbering

Postby jason360 » Mon Mar 04, 2013 8:06 pm

Hey guys,

Just have a problem I don't know how to fix. I would like to number each echoed item from my query within the aside id tag for "techSlide" (aside id='techSlide).

I would like it to echo like this:

<aside id='techSlide1' class='ic_container'>
<aside id='techSlide2' class='ic_container'>
<aside id='techSlide3' class='ic_container'>
<aside id='techSlide4' class='ic_container'>
<aside id='techSlide5' class='ic_container'>
<aside id='techSlide6' class='ic_container'>

Thanks in advance!

Code: Select all
 $query = mysql_query('SELECT * FROM products WHERE quantity > 0 AND featured = 1 ORDER BY RAND() LIMIT 6');

                    $i = 0;

                    while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($query))


                        echo "<aside id='techSlide' class='ic_container'>

                           <a href='".$row['id']."'>

                              <img class='titleImage' src='images/shop/".$row['id'].".jpg'  alt='".$row['name']."' />

                              <div class='overlay' style='display:none;'></div>

                              <div class='ic_caption'>

                                 <p class='ic_category'>&#36;".number_format($row['price'] , 2)."</p>
                                 <p class='ic_text'>

You are nearly there. If you want the numbering to start at 1, change $i = 0; to $i = 1; and then chnage your echo to
Code: Select all
echo "<aside id='techSlide<?php echo $i; ?>' class='ic_container'>
