Doing this is actually rather easy.
SELECT e.id, e.title, e.subheading, eta.start_timestamp,
eta.end_timestamp, e.zip, e.bold, e.outline, e.color, e.subheading,
COUNT(esa.id) AS subcat_count
SELECT COUNT(e.id) AS count
Or am I completely missing the point?
I've tried that. It doesn't work for two reasons:
1) the ORDER BY subcat_count in the original query would cause an error in
2) removing that ORDER BY clause to make valid SQL still results in a set of
rows - one for each of the original rows - rather than a single COUNT value
for the entire query. The values for COUNT range from 1 to 4 depending on
how many subcategory ASSOC records (esa) are connected to a particular e.id.
Ah - that would be the group by doing that.
GROUP BY eta.id ORDER BY subcat_count DESC, eta.id
Does that get you what you want?
If it gives you one result - make sure it's right. Change a few id's,
make sure they match up to what your other query returns.
