Heya, kavithadevan.

Code Green was being facetious. He was implying that you could stop by TheScripts every day, and we'll supply you with a new proverb!

You have a couple of options. These are the two easiest ways that don't require scheduling scripts:

- You can display a random proverb every time the User loads the page. This is the easiest way to do it.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  2.         *
  3.     FROM
  4.         `Data_Proverbs`
  5.     ORDER BY
  6.         RAND()
  7.     LIMIT 1
- You can display a different proverb depending on what day of the year it is. This is slightly more difficult, but still pretty easy.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. $sql = '
  3.         *
  4.     FROM
  5.         `Data_Proverbs`
  6.     WHERE
  7.         `proverbid` = \'' . (date('z') % 365) . '\'
  8.     LIMIT 1';
