Re: Inquiry on website data
What you would need to do is setup a mysql database, create a table the posts. Just basic fields like, ID, Name, Content, Data/Time. Then you would want to pass the information using a query (index.php?news=3) you can use webfriendly urls later on first just get it working.

Then to display specific items you would use $_GET['news'] to get the page id (in this case 3) and SELECT * WHERE ID = '3' for your query. This will pull up the record you want.

If you want to talk more about it im on yahoo mclarke87poker. Although if your looking for a news site you may want to consider wordpress.
