PHP: limiting amount of text printed
I am in the process of re-writing one of my sites in PHP using MySQL for the dynamic content. I have a table within my database that I store 'news' items that I show on a specific page within the site but I would like to show maybe the first 200 characters of the article on the front page, but I cannot work out hoiw to limit the output of the MySQL query to only 200 characters.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Take a look at the SUBSTRING function:
