Is it possible to have hyperlinks within a database attached to a web server via php?


I am running Slackware 13.0 and using apache + php + postgresql, all the latest versions. I am attaching my database to my website. When a user pulls a query the results will be displayed.

Is it possible to have links embedded in the results? For instance a user inputs a genre of games to see all the games in the genre in the database. When the results are returned on the next page, I want a user to be able to click on the title of a game to take them to another screen with screenshots, summary, and ratings.

How would I go about doing this?

Nevermind I got it.

Code:
print "<td width=225>"; print "<a href='http://192.168.1.111/"; echo "$row[1]"; print".html'>"; echo "$row[8]"; print "</a>";print "</td></tr></table>";
I put the link address in $row[8] of the database.

I got it working
Code:
print "<td width=225>"; print "<a href='http://192.168.1.111/"; echo "$row[1]"; print".html'>"; echo "$row[8]"; print "</a>";print "</td></tr></table>";
$row[1] is the title of the game. I make an html file [name of game].html and I put the link address in $row[8] in my database.

PHP rox!
