// Example extended class

buildForum() {
$sql = "SELECT * FROM `forum_cats` WHERE `PID` = '{$this->data[$this->pointer]['ID']}'";
$this->object[$this->pointer]['Forum'] = new forumObject($sql);

// Make sure you connect to your database first.
$id_link = mysql_connect("localhost", "user", "password");

// ------------------------------------------------

// Example Recursive Forum Builder.
function buildForumCategories($forums) {
// Build a container so the child boards indent.
echo "<div style=\"margin-left: 10px;\">";
// We can use foreach to increment the internal pointer on the class.
foreach ($forums as $key => $forum) {
// Echo the forum name. (The field name is the MySQL row or whatever you specified in the query.
echo $forums->name . "<br />";
// We can see if there are any child forums using count.
        // $forums->Forum will invoke PHP 5's magic method "__get"
        // SQL_Object also implements countable interface so we can
        // override the count function with our own.
if (count($forums->Forum) > 0) {
// Call child boards.
// We can also manually do it with a for:
    // Example: for ($forums->rewind(); $forums->valid(); $forums->next())
    // We could use the internal objects, but the methods work just fine.
echo "</div>";

// Do you're normal query for the initial boards.
$sql = "SELECT * FROM `forum_cats` WHERE `PID` = 0";

// Pass the query to the extended class.
$forums = new forumObject($sql);

// Build the forum
