How can I combine these two loops in to one loop?

for ($i = count($objs)-1; $i >= 0; $i--) { 

$tempObject = new Article();
$tempObject -> title=$objs[$i];
$tempObject -> author="My Author: " . $i;

array_push($articles[get_class($tempObject)], $tempObject);

}

foreach ($articles['Article'] as $my_object)
{
    $title = (string)$my_object->title;
    $my_associative_array[$title] = $my_object;
}

What are you trying to accomplish here?  It looks like you have two different arrays in play.  Unless these arrays are hundreds of thousands of elements long, there is no economy in combining these loops and plenty of potential for making a programming error.

If you have some test data, please post it, thanks.

You could try this:

for ($i = count($objs)-1; $i >= 0; $i--) {

$tempObject = new Article();
$tempObject -> title=$objs[$i];
$tempObject -> author="My Author: " . $i;

$articles[get_class($tempObject)][$tempObject -> title] = $tempObject;

}
