    Guest overflow ?

    Hi, i v made a guestbook...now the probleme is that to many people are leaving there message (is actually not a probleme lol )...I d like that only 10 messages per page a appearing and the old messages goes automaticly to another page !!(with always maximum 10 messages per page)!!

    I've tried, some things but no succes...how do I have to do that.. : programming a counter??no idea how...or how can the "cgi", reconise how many posts ther are on each page and create a new one if all are full...??

    thanks for your help !!

    It depends on how you write to your guestbook. If you print each post to a static HTML page, you'll probably need some complex pattern matching. And the result will probably still be prone to error. If you have each post stored in a database and generate the pages dynamically you could use the following to loop through a specific range of index numbers and retrieve only those posts instead of every post.

    $page = int(abs $page || 1) - 1;
    for ($page * $msgs_per_pg .. ($page + 1) * $msgs_per_pg - 1)
