Matt,

I suggest you break your code down to the simplest possible. Too many 
factors in there for my taste.  FWIW, I had to bang my head a few times 
to get it and still have to verify my assumptions. For some reason I 
took to Template::Toolkit rather fast but smarty is working fine for 
me.

Here are a few notes, but I'm fairly new to PHP so caution.

First, totally unrelated to your question:

 Function readComment( $smarty, $bid ) {

In Perl and in PHP I have my classes ONLY manipulate data and return 
data to the handerl which then passes it off to what I call the 
viewer. In this way, in Perl for instance, I can use more than one 
template system as I create a class for each template system and 
manipulate the data as needed for that system. Works like a charm. In 
this way you can use the code in your classes for manythings ... it's 
not tied to your output.  Also, now some might complain that this might 
be slower or take more memory or whatever, but I do this with smarty:

$data = $g-run($com,$fid);

$data is an array of data returned by my functions.
$data['content'] = $g-viewer-Merge($data,$template); 

print $g-viewer-Merge($data,'index.html'); 

So I *wrap* the content of pages into a page which pulls in 
header/footer rather than having a header/footer in every page. 

Okay, back to your qeustion:


   while( $row = $result-fetchRow( DB_FETCHMODE_ASSOC ) ) {
 $rowdata[$i] = $row;
 $i++;

I don't think you need the $i.

Are you sure you have data in $rowdata?

Your use of section looks good to me. You've got those if statements. 
Sure they are all true. 

I'm using section in lots of stuff and it's working fine.

When I run into trouble I work from the most basic, the simplest and 
then move up.

Peter

That does sound like a better and more logical approach.  I think I'll
incorporate that into my code.


 $data = $g-run($com,$fid);
 
 $data is an array of data returned by my functions.
 $data['content'] = $g-viewer-Merge($data,$template);
 
 print $g-viewer-Merge($data,'index.html');

  I need the $i because I'm assigning the every row from the result into
an array.


 Are you sure you have data in $rowdata?


  Yup, $rowdata is filled with data, and the right data at that. :)


 Your use of section looks good to me. You've got those if statements.
 Sure they are all true.


This one might be my downfall, I'll have to dig into this one a bit
more.

I found my problem.  Nick and comment were the wrong case, they should
have been NICK and COMMENT.  I can't believe I did that.

Thanks for the help,
Matt

RE: [PHP] Smarty template question

Was written

 while( $row = $result-fetchRow( DB_FETCHMODE_ASSOC ) ) {
   $rowdata[$i] = $row;
   $i++;
  
  I don't think you need the $i.
 
   I need the $i because I'm assigning the every row from the result into
 an array.

http://www.php.net/manual/en/language.types.array.php#language.types.arr
ay.syntax

 This is done by assigning values to the array while specifying the key
 in brackets. You can also omit the key, add an empty pair of brackets
 ([]) to the variable-name in that case. 

 $arr[key] = value;
 $arr[] = value;
 // key is either string or nonnegative integer
 // value can be anything

You really don't have to create $i, it will be created *on the fly*, 
works for me.

I took your template and created a simple php script using smarty. It 
works. Here it is:

http://www.schoenster.com/tests/smarty.php

and here is the PHP script I wrote:
(not that I used debugging!, that is a real nice helpful touch). 

?php

include_once ( 'Smarty.class.php'); // 

$smarty = new Smarty;
$smarty-compile_check = true;
$smarty-template_dir = '.';
$smarty-debugging = true;

$action = 'read';
$colors = array('red','blue','green','yellow');
foreach ( $colors as $color ) {
$comments[] = array('nick'=nick $color,'comment'=comment 
$color);
}

$smarty-assign('action',$action);
$smarty-assign('comments',$comments);
$smarty-display('smarty.html');

?

Yes you are correct, sorry that is a hold over from my c++ days.  Its
just a habit.  I figured out my problem, I didn't have my variables
nick  comment capitalized like they are in the database.

Thanks for your help,
Matt
