I have to write some PHP backend code for a threaded message board. The db has a message table, and each message has a parent id.
Does anyone have any advice for someone whos never done this in PHP? I'm currently thinking that I write function that takes a db row as an argument, and initially, it is passed the root node of the whole tree. It is also probably passed a string variable. The first thing it will do is append the code for itself to the string. Then it will query the DB for all its children (with an order by post timestamp), and for every child, it will call itself on that child row. Am I on the right track? (I've done simmilar things in C++, just not in PHP)... td -- Publish technical articles @ skilledwords.com and get 100% of the ad-revenue! http://www.skilledwords.com
