What I'm trying to do is make a really wacky counter. If those details are required for answering my question, let me know.

My database is setup with three fields: id, pid (profileid), and ip (ip address). What I'm trying to do is display them on their profiles.

$query = mysql_query("select COUNT(ip) FROM table WHERE pid='$id'");
$row = mysql_fetch_array($query);
echo("
<b>Profile Views:</b> ".$row['COUNT(ip)']."
");
That obviously displays however many rows there are with the same pid. What I want to do is make it so if the ip field is the same, it will only count it once so that only unique ip addresses are shown, but all views are actually recorded.

Can anyone help?

think you wanna throw a GROUP BY ip in there
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

Not sure what you mean.
$query = mysql_query("select COUNT(ip) FROM xb9_pviews WHERE pid='$id' GROUP BY ip");
$row = mysql_fetch_array($query);
echo("
<b>Profile Views:</b> ".$row['COUNT(ip)']."
");
This gives the exact same answer.

select COUNT(DISTINCT ip) FROM table WHERE pid='$id'
If you are still using mysql_ functions, STOP! Use mysqli_ or PDO. The longer you leave it the more you will have to rewrite.
