Not a problem. I've worked through getting the data (thanks to the help of yourself and other members), now I'm just trying to figure out how to incorporate it into an HTML page so that I can actually view it and style it according to the rest of my site.
I found another tutorial out there that explained the process of creating a database to store the data, but I'm uncertain as to how to connect the two pieces together. I'm also not sure I really need the database, as I just want to display the roster and aren't too concerned with any more functionality beyond that.
Again, I think this comes down to my experience being in design, and not dynamic development. If I had the data there on the page I could wrap it in tags, create a table for it, etc., but as it stands now all I have is the PHP code, staring me right in the face and laughing at my ignorance, and the XML data which I can view through the "view source" function in any number of browsers.
I know there's probably something simple I'm missing. And someone else mentioned the snippets in previous posts would help me through the process, but unfortunately I haven't had any luck with that either.
I've definitely been getting my 25 dollars a month worth out of Lynda.com, lol. So far I've plowed through variables, strings, functions, arrays, booleans and nulls, if, else and elseif statements, as well as loops (the latter of which has also looped my brain, and will definitely require another dozen viewings or so before it starts to make sense).
