php, mysql error


My database is just a single table with no relations:
create database texter;
create table (titel varchar(255),datum date,text longtext)

I'm getting an error on line 44 wich is around here:



// im using mysql_fetch_array(). il precise a bit
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
$texter = $row['titel'];
printf("%s, %s<br />", $texter);



Il admit i dont really know how to insert my database into the php code

I would really appreciate if someone could look at my database structure and just fill in whats missing


Thanks!

Well..
Code:
 printf("%s, %s<br />", $texter);
Two %s, one parameter with value. If I remember correctly it won't use the same for both %s.

Okay thanks! that worked
edit: once i tested to add something and it didnt work, i removed it and nothing works instead....



But how do i get it to spit out the text and not just the title?

// im using mysql_fetch_array(). il precise a bit
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
$texter = $row['titel'];
printf("%s, %s<br />", $texter);


it didnt work to add :
$texter - $row['text']
and another %s

then it just skips everything and goes to else wich is "no posts found"

Code:
$query = mysql_query( "select name, title from user where name = $user ")

while ( list ( $name, $title ) = mysql_fetch_row( $query ))
{
  // do whatever with $name and $title for this row
}
The number of items in the list() call must match the number of items in the select.

Okay i rearranged my database instead made 2 tables and now it works.

now its just design how do i get title first and the text under it?

like:

(Title) Diablo

(Text) ince the beginning of time, the forces of Order and Chaos have been engaged in an eternal struggle to decide the fate of all Creation. That struggle has now come to the Mortal Realm...and neither Man, Demon, nor Angel will be left unscathed...


And it would be nice to get the text more centered or in a box. its pretty hard to read it like that.


thanks!

Well...write HTML code that should be filled and then just fill it. I don't understand where's the problem. Example:
printf("%s <br />%s<br />", $titel, $longtext);
