    Hi there!

    Im quite new to both PHP and MySQL.
    As an exercise Im just trying to develop a news forum with PHP and MySQL. What Im looking for is an advise of how to layout the
    database.
    I thought about something like this:
    Key: topicID
    other columns: parent (for replys), kids (for number of kids), root (for distance to root news), and some columns for name, date and so on.
    Is that a good idea?
    If somebody could help Id be really happy

    Thanks and take care everybody!

    ------------------

    <?php
    $s = array("J","A","p","h","p","H");
    for ($i = 0; $i <= 9; $i++) { echo $s[$i]; }
    ?>
