hi im putting together a video script an have just added a search script.
The search script displays the text and images vertically,iwant to display them
horizontally with four images in a row , like u tube.
can any one help?

here is the search script. many thanks

include './connections/c_database.php';
//This is a working script
//Make sure to go through it and edit database table filelds that you are seraching
//This script assumes you are searching 3 fields

$connections = mysql_connect($host, $user, $pass) or die ( "Unabale to connect to the database" );
//select database
mysql_select_db($db) or die ( "Unable to select database!" );

//specify how many results to display per page
$limit = 50;

// Get the search variable from URL
$var = @$_GET['q'] ;
//trim whitespace from the stored variable
$trimmed = trim($var);
//separate key-phrases into keywords
$trimmed_array = explode(" ",$trimmed);
// check for an empty string and display a message.
if ($trimmed == "") {
$resultmsg = "<p>Search Error</p><p>Please enter a search...</p>" ;
// check for a search parameter
if (!isset($var)){
$resultmsg = "<p>Search Error</p><p>We don't seem to have a search parameter! </p>" ;
// Build SQL Query for each keyword entered
foreach ($trimmed_array as $trimm){

// EDIT HERE and specify your table and field names for the SQL query
$query = "SELECT * FROM data WHERE id LIKE \"%$trimm%\" OR thumb LIKE \"%$trimm%\" OR titel LIKE \"%$trimm%\" OR code LIKE \"%$trimm%\"ORDER BY id DESC" ;
// Execute the query to get number of rows that contain search kewords
$numresults=mysql_query ($query);
$row_num_links_main =mysql_num_rows ($numresults);
// next determine if 's' has been passed to script, if not use 0.
// 's' is a variable that gets set as we navigate the search result pages.
if (empty($s)) {
// now let's get results.
$query .= " LIMIT $s,$limit" ;
$numresults = mysql_query ($query) or die ( "Couldn't execute query" );
$row= mysql_fetch_array ($numresults);

//store record id of every item that contains the keyword in the array we need to do this to avoid display of duplicate search result.
//EDIT HERE and specify your field name that is primary key
$adid_array[] = $row[ 'id' ];
}while( $row= mysql_fetch_array($numresults));
} //end foreach

if($row_num_links_main == 0 && $row_set_num == 0){
$resultmsg = "" . $trimmed ."</p><p>Sorry, your search returned zero results</p>" ;
//delete duplicate record id's from the array. To do this we will use array_unique function
$tmparr = array_unique($adid_array);
$i % 5 == 0;
foreach ($tmparr as $v) {
$newarr[$i] = $v;
// now you can display the results returned. But first we will display the search form on the top of the page

// display what the person searched for.
if( isset ($resultmsg)){
echo $resultmsg;
echo "
<div align=center>
<table border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 width=943>
<td><p><font size=4>Search results for : $var</td>
</div> " ;

foreach($newarr as $value){

// EDIT HERE and specify your table and field names for the SQL query
$query_value = "SELECT * FROM data WHERE id = '$value'";
$num_value=mysql_query ($query_value);
$row_linkcat= mysql_fetch_array ($num_value);
$row_num_links= mysql_num_rows ($num_value);

//now let's make the keywords bold. To do that we will use preg_replace function.
//EDIT parts of the lines below that have fields names like $row_linkcat[ 'field1' ]
//This script assumes you are searching only 3 fields. If you are searching more fileds make sure that add appropriate line.
$titlehigh = preg_replace ( "'($var)'si" , "<b>\\1</b>" , $row_linkcat[ 'id' ] );
$linkhigh = preg_replace ( "'($var)'si" , "<b>\\1</b>" , $row_linkcat[ 'titel' ] );
$linkthumb = preg_replace ( "'($var)'si" , "<b>\\1</b>" , $row_linkcat[ 'thumb' ] );
$datum = preg_replace ( "'($var)'si" , "<b>\\1</b>" , $row_linkcat[ 'datum' ] );
$code = preg_replace ( "'($var)'si" , "<b>\\1</b>" , $row_linkcat[ 'code' ] );

foreach($trimmed_array as $trimm){
if($trimm != 'b' ){
//IF you added more fields to search make sure to add them below as well.
$titlehigh = preg_replace( "'($trimm)'si" , "<b>\\1</b>" , $titlehigh);
$linkhigh = preg_replace( "'($trimm)'si" , "<b>\\1</b>" , $linkhigh);
$linkdesc = preg_replace( "'($trimm)'si" , "<b>\\1</b>" , $datum);
$linkthumb = preg_replace( "'($trimm)'si" , "<b>\\1</b>" , $thumb);
$linkcode = preg_replace( "'($trimm)'si" , "<b>\\1</b>" , $code);
//end highlight

<?php echo $datum; ?>
<?php echo $linkhigh; ?><br>
<?php echo $thumb; ?>

<font color="#FF0000">

<a href="index.php?video=<?= $code ?>"><img src="<?= $thumb ?>">

} //end foreach $trimmed_array
if($row_num_links_main > $limit){
// next we need to do the links to other search result pages
if ($s>=0) { // do not display previous link if 's' is '0'

// check to see if last page
$slimit =$s+$limit;
