it doesn't output the message and date variables, only the part that says "Posted on : " and "News : " and the "<br />"s. Help! I know that I could connect to the db correctly! also I don't get the could not query message!

$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM news ORDER BY id DESC LIMIT 0 , 10") OR die("Could not query.");
while ($row = mysql_fetch_object($result)) {
echo "Posted on : ";
echo $row['date'];
echo "<br />";
echo "News : ";
echo $row['message'];
echo "<br /><br />";

Try changing

I think with mysql_fetch_object you have to use pointer notation to refer to your fields whereas mysql_fetch_array you can refer to them as you have above.
