Hi,

I have a nested array in php:
[field_linkout] => Array
        (
            [0] => Array
                (
                    [nid] => 57
                    [view] => <a href="/content/about">About</a>
                )

            [1] => Array
                (
                    [nid] => 15
                    [view] => <a href="/content/learning" class="active">Learning</a>
                )

            [2] => Array
                (
                    [nid] => 55
                    [view] => <a href="/content/organising">Organising</a>

                )

        )


I need to display only the links in the [view] element.

This is how far I've got:

<?php
    if(is_array($node->field_linkout)){
      foreach ($node->field_linkout as $linkoutarray ) {
            foreach ($linkoutarray as $linkdata => $link)
            {
                print $link[view] . '<br/>';
            }
      }
    } //
  ?>

  </div>

But it is displaying the first value of both the [nid] and [view] elements. I just need the [view] value.

Any help would be really appriciated.
Thanks, Lk

your code is wrong, try this:
    if(is_array($node->field_linkout)){
      foreach ($node->field_linkout as $linkoutarray ) {
         print $linkoutarray[view] . '<br/>';
      }

little explanation:
This is array of array (2 levels). And your code was passing it like it was array of array of array (3 levels).
