    Hi all,

    This is my first post here. I have been looking everywhere on the forums and
    all over the net but i cannot find anything about this.

    I did find one tutorial ages ago but didnt have a use for it at the time.
    What i would like to do is have a page that cycles through a database and
    display lets say the last 5 new records. Then display the first 200
    characters of a memo field and have a "more" link which opens the full
    record in a detail page?

    A good example is http://www.ananova.com/ But you dont click a "more" link
    just the title of the news article.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
    Many Thanks
    Mike
