I have a list of more than 50 merchants I want to display,( i would like to display them with images and headers, but i have only used sql for biodata collection)and I would like the customer to choose the number they want; for example, they should be able to choose if they want the page to display only 10, 20 or all.At the moment I made about 3 diff pages so that they can press the next button to the diferent pages (all coded in php). i have read up on pagination( but it only uses a normal biodata like name in the example, i think my first step is ow to structure the database

1.please can you point me to a tutorial on ow to make a database to include the images with the header

this is the php code for one of the similar list

PHP Code:
<li class="af-banner">
    <
h2>
        <
a href="women.php">Lingerie Please</a>
     </
h2>
<
a href="women.php"><img height="125" width="125"  src="img/lingerieplease.jpg" alt=" Lingerie Please"/>
</
a>
<
class="promo-seo">
