Hello guys.

We are working with a new website template and there is a slider image and related news article(s). Each 'slide' should display the next article by date posted. I thought we could just use the [1] after $articlesRecords ($articlesRecords[1], but obviously that doesn't work. I also tried to create the next article  by using 'offset', which works to a point but throws errors and certainly can't be the way to  do this (below) . . . Any assitance would  be greatly appreciated.

// load record from 'articles'
list($articlesRecords2, $articlesMetaData) = getRecords(array(
'tableName' => 'articles',
'where' => '', // load second record
'loadUploads' => true,
'allowSearch' => false,
'limit' => '1',
'offset' => '1',
));

SO....Here what we have so far:

<?php
/* STEP 1: LOAD RECORDS - Copy this PHP code block near the TOP of your page */

// load viewer library
$libraryPath = 'cmsAdmin/lib/viewer_functions.php';
$dirsToCheck = array('/var/www/sites/www.osga.com/html/','','../','../../','../../../');
foreach ($dirsToCheck as $dir) { if (@include_once("$dir$libraryPath")) { break; }}
if (!function_exists('getRecords')) { die("Couldn't load viewer library, check filepath in sourcecode."); }

// load record from 'articles'
list($articlesRecords, $articlesMetaData) = getRecords(array(
'tableName' => 'articles',
'where' => '', // load first record
'loadUploads' => true,
'allowSearch' => false,
'limit' => '1',
));
