Most explanation are included with the code excerpt
I would like getting three sets of each $un and $thumb_name side by side
then go to the next three
etc... etc...
This output data one one after the other one in a vertical table organized way

$num=$db->num_rows($result3);
$i=0;
while ($i <$num)
{	
	$un=mysql_result($result3,$i,"username");
	$thumb_name=mysql_result($result3,$i,"thumb_name");
	echo"<tr><td>$un</td><td>$thumb_name</td></tr>";
	
$i++;
}

What I am looking for is:
echo"<tr><td>$un</td><td>$thumb_name</td><td>$un</td><td>$thumb_name</td><td>$un</td><td>$thumb_name</td></tr>";	
where results will show three sets at a time side by side
then jump to the next three set etc...
and taking care of left over from $i%3 if it comes to an odd number
but I do not figure how to do that

Try this:

 
$num=$db->num_rows($result3);
$i=0;

// Start the first row
echo '<tr>';

while ($i <$num)
{	
	$un=mysql_result($result3,$i,"username");
	$thumb_name=mysql_result($result3,$i,"thumb_name");
	        
        // Spit out the data
	echo"<td>$un</td><td>$thumb_name</td>";
	if ( (( $i+1)%3) ==0 ) {
		// End of row
		echo '</tr>';
	} 


$i++;
}

if (! $i%3) {
    // Clean up last partial row
    echo '</tr>';
}

You may need to play with the last if statement to make sure it ends the row for partial cases.

Thanks
But it is still outputting one above the other one
as:
<tr><td>aaa</td><td>bbb</td></tr>
<tr><td>aaa</td><td>bbb</td></tr>

instead of three results side by side as:

<tr><td>$un</td><td>$thumb_name</td> <td>$un</td><td>$thumb_name</td> <td>$un</td><td>$thumb_name</td></tr>
<tr><td>$un</td><td>$thumb_name</td> <td>$un</td><td>$thumb_name</td> <td>$un</td><td>$thumb_name</td></tr>

etc....
