    php / mysql help with new script

    What i'm aiming for is a mysql driven database script that will allow clients to post an anonymous comment in the database and then give them a random link to that comment. So this random link is like /comment.php?=687687 or something like that.

    I'm not sure if there is a function in php that does that or even how to go about starting it... I'm kinda new to php and just looking for help.

    thanks alot.

    This is kind of a general question and involves more then a few ines of code + how to do it is cvery application-specific. What always will be envolved is inserting the post into a table with an autonum primary key --< it's this value that is appended to the querystring.

    To build the links, you select this records PK value and append it. like
    PHP Code:
    $sql="select messageID, messageTitle from messages";
    $result=mysql_query($sql) or die ('Queryproblem');
    if (
    mysql_num_rows($result) >=1){
       while (
    '<a href="yourpage.php?message=' $row['messageID'] . '>open message "'$row['messageTitle'] .'"</a>'
    'No messages found.';
