Thanks for any help with this.
My client has a cart for which I've made a custom homepage.
We use this query to display the 3 newest items on the homepage:
$query = 'SELECT * FROM `tbl_item` GROUP BY `item_id` ORDER BY `item_id` DESC LIMIT 3';
Now, my client has several categories which he does not want the items of to be displayed on the homepage.
In the database the column is "category_id" which is within the same table as in the query shown above.
How would I exclude several categories from being displayed via the query above? Thanks.
edit: I found this code will exclude 1 ID, but I need to exclude multiple ID's, not sure how.
$query = 'SELECT * FROM `tbl_item` WHERE NOT (category_id = "138") GROUP BY `item_id` ORDER BY `item_id` DESC LIMIT 3';
Ideally, I would like to exclude a whole parent ID, so I just have to put one ID in the query, but the parent_id is in another table, the "categories" table, not the items table.
I believe I have to do a subselect, but I don't know how.
