Are you tring to add content to a module or to a wysiwyg editor?

For the first:
Yes it's possible. There are 2 ways of accomplishing this:
1- Without use of smarty templates
In this case open the corresponding php file (for ex: article.php), perform your db query and output the result [echo $var;]. Be advised that this method could break ajax functionality if it exists in the module.
2- With smarty templates
This method stats the same as method 1, but instead of using an "echo" you will insert a new smarty var. This requieres changes in 2 files; the php file and smarty template.

i dont understand kaotik..im new to php and i think i should explain myself again..sorry my english sucks

what i really want to do is to post an article using the content module by formuss..

in the article i want to show a table ..the data in the table is from my db


example of my query
<?php
global $xoopsDB;
$result mysql_query("SELECT * FROM ".$xoopsDB->prefix("section_info")." WHERE Unit='Pharmacy' ORDER BY senioriti");

$count =1;
echo 
"<table><tr class='head'>";
echo 
"<td>No</td>";
echo 
"<td>Name</td>";


$style=0;

while(
$row mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
$my_id=$row['my_id']; 

echo 
'<tr class="', ++$style 'even' 'odd''">'
echo 
"<td>"
echo 
$count++;
echo 
"</td>";
echo 
"<td><b>" $row['name'] . "</b></td>";
echo 
"</tr>";
}
 echo 
"</table>";echo "";
  
?>


so how can i use the code above to post it in my content ?

You cannot execute PHP when you paste it into any content module. But you can use jquery/Ajax to do this for you. You "just" have to write an Ajax to pull some information from the database and load into a div or something else.

Should work? One obstacle could be, that - depending on the used editor - javascript might be filtered. But tinymce or tinyeditor (others I don't know) can be configured that way, that javascript is allowed.
