Hi i have tried this a few ways and no results and no errors either. Im getting really tired so thought would ask for some help here.
The original query that works perfectly was
$iscomment=mysql_query("SELECT * FROM profile_comment WHERE com_memid = $USERID AND com_approved = '1' ORDER BY com_time DESC",$link);
So that will grab all the queried comments left by users and list those comments on the USERID profile (USERID is a copy of SESSIONID)
and that works fine but what i want to do is not list the comments from users who have hidden their profile.
So i need to do an INNER JOIN i think. I need to grab two other values from another table called adverts adv_paused and adv_approved
Here is my latest attempt and i will try to doc for you as we go.
This does not work by the way lol
// get all the fields needed from the profile_coments table
profile_comment.mem_id, profile_comment.com_memid, profile_comment.comment, profile_comment.com_approved, profile_comment.com_time,
//also get the values from the adverts table for paused and approved
INNER JOIN adverts ON(profile_comment.memid = adv_userid)
//grab advert for whoever left the comment
// memid is the person who left the comment, so grab the matching adv_userid from adverts table
WHERE profile_comment.com_memid ='$USERID' AND com_approved = '1'
//now locate the profile for the signed on member in the table to pull their comments if any match their id. USERID is a compy of SESSIONID so we want the locate those USERID records and make sure the comment has been approved.
ORDER BY profile_comment.com_time DESC",$link);
//now order by com_time in desc order
Seems simple but i cant get it to work lol
thanks in advance.
