dynamically changing a link reference

Am not really sure how to explain this but here goes:

On a clients site, I have created a testimonials pag and am using a recordset to draw the relevant info from the database to display for the relevant testimonial.

Part of each testimonial includes a modal to pop up the actual testimonial.

What I am struggling to achieve is, if I am using a repeat region using 2 or more records, then the pop up 'breaks'

The pop up when using just one record is fine and looks like this:

html:
<a class="poplight" href="#?w=700" rel="popupreference">testimonial</a>



which then displays the following

html:
<div class="popup_block" id="popupreference">Content to go here</div>



What I have been trying to do is to use the content value from the database to dynamically change the 'popupreference' bit using the Content Value from 'Popup Name' eg,

php:
<a class="poplight" href="#?w=700" rel="<?php include('WA_CMS/addtosite.php'); echo str_replace(array("<p>","</p>"),"",WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection$PowerCMSConnection'Clients''Popup Name'false$row_ClientsRS['ContentPageSetOrder'])); ?>">testimonial</a></div>



php:
<div class="popup_block" id="<?php include('WA_CMS/addtosite.php'); echo str_replace(array("<p>","</p>"),"",WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection$PowerCMSConnection'Clients''Popup Name'false$row_ClientsRS['ContentPageSetOrder'])); ?>">Content to go here</div>



Is it possible to achieve what I am trying to do uising this method and if so, what am I doing wrong please?

Thanks

Jamie

It is posible, but not simple.

the second recordset would need to placed inside the repeat region, and would need to use the first recordset as a filter.

if you need help with this, it goes beyond what i can do here in the forums, i would suggest signing up for a premiere support appointment.
