Display page comments on seperate pages

Display page comments on seperate pages

I want to display my page comments with the page the user is commenting on only, right now I have it set up so it displays on every page in the recordset. The way I plan on filtering is by having the date under the comic page being entered into the database, in the comments table, then I want to filter it by the creators ID (this works) and the date entered which will be identical to the exact time the page was uploaded shown in the date field below the comic.

I am trying to write the proper query where comments.date = uploads.date , right now I am getting zero results. The query I wrote looks like

SELECT comments.*, uploads.date
FROM comments, uploads
WHERE USERIDENT = colname AND comments.date=uploads.date
ORDER BY comments.ID DESC



Examples can be seen at web_comicX.php?ID=6
and web_comic.php?ID=6

The first one has the database query above, the second one works but with the comments on every page.

are you positive that there are results in the database for the USERIDENT you are testing where the comments.date = uploads.date?


I find it helpfull when troubel shooting SQL Queries to take the web page out of the mix and go do the query right in the database. If you have a local database, use a tool like the MySQL GUI Tools query browser or SQLYog to access the database and run the query.


first try with just the date aspect:
SELECT comments.*, uploads.date
FROM comments, uploads
WHERE comments.date=uploads.date


see if this returns a result, if so make note of one of the USERIDENT values and try the query with one of those values:
SELECT comments.*, uploads.date
FROM comments, uploads
WHERE USERIDENT = <value from precious query> AND comments.date=uploads.date


if the first query does not return a result, double check the values being stored in the comments.date and uploads.date columns.
