Any way to count() on a different php page?


I am making a guestbook, and on the page guestbook.php i can use…

<? echo count($record); ?>

and it will show how many entries there are on the page.

Is it possible to put <? echo count($record); ?> on say index.php to count how many entries there are on guestbook.php?

I’m pretty new to php so try and dumb things down for me! cheers!



Is guestbook a file/DB or page? What exactly is the $record coming from. You can put it on your index page but depending on how the guest book records are stored will dictate how you retreive that information.
