Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

    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.
