im in the proccess of starting a bulletin system where users store their bulletins in the "bulletins" table ...now.. how would i only show the bulletins by the users' friens.. the users are stored in the table "users" and the friends conenctions are stored in the "friends" .. i want to have a query like this to show your friends bulletins:

mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `bulletins` WHERE `from` = ??") or die("There was an error showing your buletins");

i want to put seomthing that means "a friend of yours" where i have "??"

Providing you have all your frineds id's, something like this would do it.

mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `bulletins` WHERE `from` IN(3,18,9,5,10)") or die("There was an error showing your buletins");

However you would more likely want to use some sort of join to get your frineds id's and there posts into one query.
