Hello group,

I'm still learning PHP and have create a PHP page which allow users to upload a game (Flash base - *.swf). Of course, each game occupies a row in a table presenting its name, description and ....
it works fine but now I have run into a situation that adding these games will make long table.

1) How can I implement a code to take care of this situaiton? meaning that if number of uploaded files is more than 5 then show the rest of them in a 2nd page, 3rd page and so on. Like the way emails are shown and each user can get to Previous or Next page or using 1 2 3 4 ... n  links ?

2) Also, I need to allow user to search for a specific game name. Names are stored in a MySQL table and I have an idea but will be great if you could advise me on this thing too.

3) For the sorting, should I use only the sorting functions in PHP?

Regards.

1) Pagination - http://www.tonymarston.net/php-mysql/pagination.html

2) Really depends on what criteria you are searching.  A very basic example would be:
    mysql_query ( "SELECT * FROM uploads WHERE title LIKE '%$var%'" );

3) Use a combination of PHP & MySQL to order your data.
