Using LIKE statement but excluding rows


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I have a site that displays a product, then shows similar products based off the name of the first (like a 'You might also like...' list). However the original product keeps appearing in this similar product list. I need a way to exclude that product.


You can see this here:




Notice how the Reno Stool also appears in the suggested items list.


Can anyone help me out? Heres the SQL:


$sql = "SELECT * FROM product WHERE " . implode(' OR ', $searchTerms) . " AND product_id != '$prodid' LIMIT 3";


The .implode() just splits up the name of the item whilst $prodid is the items unique identifier. I have also tried NOT LIKE, <> and != $productname as well.


Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
