JoeyH3 posted a topic in PHP Coding HelpHi all! I'm working on a simple script to manage a webcomic, which will have multiple pages in each chapter. I'm trying to create an archive page which will show thumbnails for every comic, organized by chapter, such as: Chapter 1 Title - Page 1 - Page 2 - Page 3 Chapter 2 Title - Page 1 - Page 2 - Page 3 Etc In MySQL, I have two tables: Chapter (ChapterID, Name) Page (PageID, Chapter, Image, Thumbnail) The only method I could find for achieving this on Google suggested using a query to obtain all of the chapters from the chapter table, and then while looping through the results, use a second statement with a WHERE clause to select the comics for that chapter. However, that just seems like poor practice and sounds horribly inefficient once too many chapters are added. I'm wondering if there's a more efficient way to approach this, so that I can organize my results into groups? If someone could simply give me the logic to use or nudge me in the right direction, I'd gladly appreciate it Thanks, Joey
