php onmouseover help please

P: 3
I have a js script inside php code that is connected to mysql, the php code is listing the results from the query then, the onmouseover function is supposed to show the description of the title for that specific title, however, the mouseover is displaying all the descriptions for every title. Also, will you let me know if I have code in here that is not needed? I'm very new to php/js

well, your PHP function that fetches the description indeed outputs all descriptions for every title. why you wrote that function, I donít understand, since the correct description is included in the original resultset.

PS. JavaScript is not at fault here, it only shows the results.

PPS. if (document.all) will also be triggered in Opera

What do i have to change? Sorry, I'm still new to this and found the js script online, the script itself is working but the popup should only display the contents of that row.

change your PHP so that it only prints the correct description.

my personal opinion – discard create_div(). all you need should be fetched in line 126. a simple div (line 135, having a class to trigger the JavaScript) holding the description should do.
