Subject: [PHP-DB] Theory help needed

Hi there everyone,

I have a messageboard which works, but what I need is some kind of threading
for it.  Right now I have EXTREMELY basic threading, where you can reply to
a message, reply to replies etc ..... and they'll appear in the correct part
of the messageboard.  What I need though is to be able to do proper
threading, where each reply appears under the original message and not all
over the place, but i'm confused as hell.

Anyway have any experience with this kind of thing and can give me a push in
the right direction?  I know I need to store the original ID, the forum ID,
the message ID of the current message and the ID it relates to, but it's
getting confusing :-)
