View Full Version : Resolved Adding a tagging feature to blog

01-02-2012, 05:45 PM

I've been trying to figure out how to implement a simple tagging feature to my blog script, but for the life of me, I can not figure it out!

I understand how to actually add the tags to the database and each entry, but not how to retrieve them.

For now, all I've formulated is this:

Create a table called blog_tags add a tag_id field, tag_blog_id field and tag_name field.
The tag_blog_id field will hold a blog ID - each tag a blog is given will have one entry in blog_tags: so, if an entry has 3 tags, it will have 3 entries in the blog_tags table
Get a list of matching blog entries using a JOIN statement, joining blog_entries table and blog_tags table

So, to make a long story short, I need help with the JOIN statement...any suggestions?

Sorry if this post is a bit confusing, I've tried to explain it the best that I could :confused:

I've seemed to have found a good solution, problem resolved!
