I\'ve got a small message board on my site which gets alot of messages.
I limit the number of rows of data returned by a SQL query using the limit function, so I select only the most recent 25 sorted by an auto incrementing message id. (larger the id the newer the message)
I also have a date posted column.

I want to have a button on my admin page that will allow me to delete all of the messages which are over say 30 days old but I am unsure as to the best way to structure this query.

Does anyone have any pointers as to the best way to proceed with this?

Many Thanks,

Paul Gabbott

Check the source for something like phpbb2. It\'ll have ALL that sorta info in it. :)
