Posted on 2011-09-09

Hi:

I have this php code to display database records in the table form.  But as the database grows, the page will grow longer.  Therefore, I want to display only 10 records per page.  How can this be done?

Thanks,
<?PHP
require_once("./include/membersite_config.php");

if(!$fgmembersite->CheckLogin())
{
    $fgmembersite->RedirectToURL("login.php");
    exit;
}

?>
