The most stupid thing have done posting on radar.techcabal.com
Live editing on godaddy cpanel
what is the correct form please? enlighten me
i dnt know… so am asking
I kind of just answered.
oh yh? okay
select count(*) from (Table name)
Try to give detailed answers, a total novice might be reading this and will type X as his table name
A novice runs the risk of failure without additional traits: a taste for research, and a desire to experience the incomparable gratification associated with the act of discovery itself.
I believe @xolubi sensed your additional traits, as his response was directed to your question.
You can also use mysql_num_rows() in php or equivalent in other languages . Say you wanted to find returned rows on custom select criteria.
This info wld be obvious, except for beginners
By researching, i take it you mean surfing the internet and looking for answers .As a programmer you should know some research can be tiring and you always need the help of someone experienced . Every seconds is a chance to teach and learn
If I may ask what will it take @xolubi to type it in a very easy to understand way? Wont take anything from him so please if you are posting anything and you think it will help someone out there, please make it self explanatory .
At this point, you’re just trolling and you know it.
Oh I am? Well that good considering the fact that I am right
Not everyone is a pro like you your greatest achievement can be my own smallest achievement and vice versa…there is no boss anywhere, we are all students and teachers .
so even if you think am trolling … I am undeniably right.
Really? The entitlement is strong with this one. You asked a question, it was answered and you’re taking the piss it wasn’t answered well enough for the hypothetical newbie out there. You seem like the king of guy who would be given a wife and still ask for a matrimonial mat. A thanks and God bless would have been enough.
PDO is preferable … So you can use $object->rowCount();
Baba, I tweeted at you. Holla back. E jo.
Most stupid thing i’ve heard as a dev, being asked to develop an API using Wordpress i guess
No don’t use either of those if all you need is a count. Just send a count query like @xolubi rightly said.
Errr, since we’re on this path, I once collaborated with someone by emailing code back and forth and sending notes on the line numbers they shouldn’t change. I felt stupid when I discovered DVCS.
Shying away from regex for so long. I followed some rather silly routes while trying to avoid regex. That shit makes my life so beautiful right now.
Yeah true! … I was just suggesting a better alternative to “mysql_num_rows()”. For the count query, I think it’s better to use “SELECT COUNT(1)” instead of “SELECT COUNT(*)” … What do you think?
