    Array not written properly

    I have an array resulted from a function but can't figure out how to set it properly:
    Code:
    Array
    (
        [0] => 
        [1] => <br />
    
        [2] => <span class="goToBookChapter" style="font-weight: bold;">Genesis 29:2</span><br />
    
        [3] => <br />
    
        [4] => And he <span class="" id="" style="color:MediumTurquoise; font-weight:bold;">looked</span>, and <span class="" id="" style="color:DarkRed; font-weight:bold;">behold</span> a well in the field, and, lo, there were three <span class="" id="" style="color:Teal; font-weight:bold;">flock</span>s of sheep lying by it; for out of that well they watered the <span class="" id="" style="color:Teal; font-weight:bold;">flock</span>s: and a <span class="" id="" style="color:; font-weight:bold;">great</span> stone was upon the well's mouth.<br />
    
        [5] => <br />
    
        [6] => <span class="goToBookChapter" style="font-weight: bold;">Exodus 2:16</span><br />
    
        [7] => <br />
    
        [8] => Now the <span class="" id="" style="color:green; font-weight:bold;">priest</span> of <span class="" id="" style="color:PaleGreen; font-weight:bold;">Midian</span> had seven daughters: and they came and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their <span class="" id="" style="color:Magenta; font-weight:bold;">father</span>'s <span class="" id="" style="color:Teal; font-weight:bold;">flock</span>.<br />

    Ok ok. By eliminating .= and joining strings together I managed to fix some parts of the array. However there is the first part which causes [0] to show blank. How do I get around $theresult[] = ""; not showing in [0]=>?
    The reason for avoiding is that I have a pagination code where the first page will show one less because of this:
    PHP Code:
        function getQuery($bigWords){

    ...
            
    $theresult = array();
            
    $theresult[] = "";
            
    //$theresult[] = $query;
            
    $result mysql_query($query);

        while(
    $row mysql_fetch_assoc($result)){
            
    $strText $row['text_data'];
            
    $COLORS = array('red','Teal','blue','Magenta','green','PaleGreen','orange','purple','Pink','YellowGreen','Sienna','aqua','Gray','LightBlue','MediumTurquoise','DarkRed');
            for(
    $m=0$m count($bigWords); $m++){
                
    $strText preg_replace("/(".$bigWords[$m].")/i""<span class=\"\" id=\"\" style=\"color:".$COLORS[$m]."; font-weight:bold;\">$1</span>"$strText);
                }
            
    $theresult[] .= "<br />\n<span class=\"goToBookChapter\" style=\"font-weight: bold;\">".$row['book_title']." ".$row['chapter'].":".$row['verse']."</span><br />\n".$strText;
            }
            return 
    $theresult;
            echo 
    "<br /><br />".$query."<br />";

    Yeah but also:
    PHP Code:
    $theresult[] .= "<br />\n<span class=\"goToBookChapter\" style=\"font-weight: bold;\">".$row['book_title']." ".$row['chapter'].":".$row['verse']."</span><br />\n".$strText
    Has to be (dot removed):
    PHP Code:
    $theresult[] = "<br />\n<span class=\"goToBookChapter\" style=\"font-weight: bold;\">".$row['book_title']." ".$row['chapter'].":".$row['verse']."</span><br />\n".$strText

    yes. I don't mention this because I see you seen that.

    . means 'string concatentation' and .= is shortcut for:
    PHP Code:
    $a $a $b 
    where $a and $b must be strings.
    you can't concatenate to arrays, but you can merge.
    $theresult is an array.

    the line from previous post remove the first, blank, item from the array, more exactly it don't create the blank item.

    best regards
