How would I retrieve the members of this array one at a time?

When I do a print_r(array_values($array));, I get this:

Array ( [0] => Array ( [0] => 3 [id] => 3 [1] => Weekly Reports [name] => Weekly Reports [2] => Nelson Del Valle [author] => Nelson Del Valle [3] => nelson.delvalle@verizonwireless.com [email] => nelson.delvalle@verizonwireless.com [4] =>

 [5] => http://southareanetwork.nss.vzwnet.com/weekly_reports/index.php [url] => http://southareanetwork.nss.vzwnet.com/weekly_reports/index.php ) )

If I wanted to be able to grab just the id or just the email, how do I do it? I was thinking something along the lines of "echo $array[0] but that's not working.

How do I do it?

You have a multi-dimensional array, so it would be $array[0]["id"] or $array[0]["name"], etc...

If you had more than one record in your array, and you wanted to get the name of the 2nd record, it'd be $array[1]["name"].

Your array seems the result of a query which returns database value in both associative and number indexed array.
If you're using PDO you can ue PDO::FETCH_ASSOC to get only an associative array

$result = $tmt->fetchAll($query, PDO::FETCH_ASSOC);

Open in new window


Anyway, to get email you can just use this:
echo $arr[0]['email'];

Open in new window

or this
echo $arr[0][3];

Open in new window

Also, that output looks like it's the result of a mysql_fetch_array or mysqli_fetch_array call. IMHO, the _fetch_array leads to problems. You have more than one way to access the data, which can lead to inconsistent code (one piece of code uses the numeric indexes, while another piece of code might use the column names). It's better to pick one (associative is usually better) and use that instead. You should be able to replace _fetch_array with _fetch_assoc, for example, and it will just leave you with one set of data instead of two.
