    Hi all

    I’m quite new to php.

    I’m building a small site with php and mysql. I’ve a portfolio page that shows an image, title, short desc and read more link.
    What I want to do is when you click read more single.php will open and display the full post from the database.
    I have a post I’d in the db which I’m passing through the URL but cannot figure out what I need to do on single.php.

    Any help appreciated.



    Pass id to single.php and then in single.php

    ...//init and db connection


    $query=mysql_query("SELECT * FROM posts WHERE id={$id}");

    ...//show it

    Thanks ddliu

    I spent three hours on this last night and nearly got to the “pull your hair out stage”.

    Now got it going in two minutes.

    Thanks again, ken
