dear chris,

mysql does not support 'in' clause at the momment...
the only way to this is to use the loop to generate the sql syntax..
orr.. use the implode function... to join the array into 1 string separated by
the first parameter...

$catsql = implode("or cid=", $catids);
$catsql  = ((strlen(catsql)>0)? substr(catsql, 3, strlen(catsql)): "");

$catsql = "select * from categories where " . $catsql;
