I am following along the helloworld videos/tutorials on the joomla site and figured I would try displaying a table of numbers. I have been successful displaying the table as a whole but I would like to select several rows that are unique and can't sort our the proper way to get them to display.
to display the data I am using the following and it works perfectly.
<?php foreach ($this->items as $i => $item) : ?> <tr class="row<?php echo $i % 2; ?>"> <td> <?php echo $item->startdate; ?> </td> <td> <?php echo $item->enddate; ?> </td>
The table has 4 fields (besides all the usual joomla fields) "startdate, enddate, surname, special" of the 30 or so records 5 or 6 have a text note in the "special" field, is it possible to only display those rows?
Thanks for the help. Steve
