Hi

I have read through the forum and cannot find a definitive answer. I know that section required an index to cycle through the records but that is the main difference.

Is it possible to supply me with a real life example of where I should use each of these.

The reason I ask is I am consiodering removing all of the {section} loops in my template but becasue there is over a hundred pages it is not something I will do on a whim.

Thanks for any help

You can write new code with foreach, if it's sufficient for your use case, but otherwise there's no difference in the results.

I think i might change to {foreach} loops becasue currently I an reliant on ADOdb generating indexes and it is confusing in the results when you are trying to debug.

thanks for the feedback. I hope to have my project finished soon so I can go a bit more public with it. Core code is getting done in this release and then the next version will have a modern based bootstrap 4.0 template utilizing smarty.
