Hi, i have this code that makes a search in a table called "contenidos" in the cell "title_contenidos" it works fine but i would like to make it search also in another table and cell:

$not_query_raw = "select * from  contenidos where  title_contenidos like '%" . $_GET['q'] . "%' and id_lang='".$id_lang."'  order by order_contenidos,id_contenidos "    ;

Open in new window


i would like it to also search in the table "proyectos_detalle" and in cell title_proyectos

$raw = "select * from contenidos,contenidos2 where contenidos.id = contenidos2.id and title_contenidos like '%" . $_GET['q'] . "%' and id_lang='".$id_lang."'  order by order_contenidos,id_contenidos "  ;

contenidos2 is the another table
contenidos.id is the example of column name in contenidos,same as in contenidos2.
the value of id is same in two tables.

the search should look in 2 tables and 2 colums

1. TABLE= contenidos COLUM = title_contenidos
2. TABLE= proyectos_detalle COLUM = title_proyectos
