query syntax with LIMIT

Recommended Posts

I'm trying create a query that pulls data that fit certain criteria but only pulls so many at a time. I know this means using the LIMIT statement but I don't know what the exact syntax would be. Right now I have:

$queryImg = "SELECT * FROM images LIMIT $limitValue, $f_limit WHERE subID=$subID AND imgFeatured='no'";

I'm getting an error thought so I need to figure out what's wrong with my syntax.

Any suggestions?

Just put it at the end. You may also want to use an ORDER BY clause. You can do ORDER BY RAND() if you want to display random images.

[code]SELECT * FROM images WHERE subID='$subID' AND imgFeatured='no' ORDER BY RAND() LIMIT $startrow, $rows_to_return[/code]

Also watch your quoting, leaving $subID bare could expose you to an SQL injection attack, even with magic quotes turned on.
