You may want to read up on switch (http://php.net/manual/en/control-structures.switch.php) you should only need 1 switch statement to do that.

Hi Will,

I took a look at that and rewrote the code the way you said this time adding the break; statement and it works great.
Thanks for all your help. It's great to get something to finally work but even better when you know it's been done right :)

function NewsList($num=5) {

      switch($this->PageColor) { 
      case 'Gold': 
      $color = "LstGoldPage"; 
      break;
 
      case 'Purple': 
      $color = "NewsPurplePage"; 
      break;

      case 'Magenta': 
      $color = "NewsMagentaPage"; 
      break;
 
      case 'Blue': 
      $color = "NewsBluePage"; 
      } 
       
       
      return DataObject::get($color, "", "StartDate DESC", "", $num); 
      }
