<?php 
if(empty($_GET['topic'])) {   
	exit(); 
} 
$topic = $_GET['topic']; 
$link = mysql_connect("localhost","username","password"); 
mysql_select_db("database_name"); 
 
 
$query = "SELECT item FROM info WHERE cat = '".mysql_real_escape_string($topic)."'";  
$result = mysql_query($query); 
 
if($result) { 
	$items = array(); 
 
	while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) {       
		$items[] = $row['item']; 
	} 
 
$string = implode(',',$items);
