    Tip of the day info

    Hi guys,

    I would like to create a tip of the day box using some PHP and a XML file. I would like to show one of the tip of the day in the XML file and change every hour or so. Can someone help me out on the way to achive that. Maybe direct me were to look in the help file.

    Cheers guys.

    wouldn't it be a tip of the hour then?

    anyway, i would use something like XML_Parser to parse the xml file. as for writing the XML, you should read the File Handling in PHP tutorial here.

    to save which one is the current (and other previous) tip, you would need to write to a different file or insert into a db.
