I posted this on PHP help too, not sure where it should go. At second thoughts it probobly suits MySQL better...

When I use the following code it doesn't error, but instead brings back something that I don't udnerstand.

The code is meant to pull the first post of each topic located in the news board of my phpBB forum.

phpBB uses 2 tables to store its posts. I made this code originally to pull code of SMF forums, and it worked, but SMF only used one table.

$result = mysql_query("SELECT Distinct post_id FROM phpbb_posts where forum_id='1' order by post_id desc")
or die(mysql_error());

echo "<table boarder='0'>";
echo "<tr><th>Subject</th><th>Message</th></tr>";

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) {

$result1 = mysql_query("Select * from phpbb_posts_text where post_id=".$result." order by post_id asc limit 1")
or die(mysql_error());

while($row = mysql_fetch_array( $result1 )) {

echo "<tr><td>";

echo $row['post_subject'];

echo "</td><td>";

echo $row['post_text'];

echo "</td></tr>";



echo "</table>";
echo $result1;

I put $result1 at the end to see what it returns, it should return nubers only, sinse only numbers exist in that table. However it replies with 'Resource id#4'.

It currently does reveal the newest post of the newest topic twice in the table, then stops.

It is against the Board's Guidelines to create multiple topics dealing with the same issue.
