im making a website where visitors can comment on essays that they read. i have a
table that contains every comment written and each comment has its own ID for primary
key and articleid column for which essay it is written for. now, i want to be able to
tally up how many comments there are for each particular article on a page that sums
up all of the essays for a user, so that you can tell which ones have had new comments
and which havent. its quite basic, but im stuck as far as what to do. any help would
be great, thanks.
