The author of ticket should be determined by the first post related to the ticket.
I'm trying to build a query, which will give me ticket.*, last post date, last post author and all for the given author(user_id).
Can I make that using only one query?
Thanks in advance.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, acid.
You have written out the logic in plain text, now simply apply the SQL syntax to it. The only part missing is how to JOIN the tables based on their relation. What do you have so far?

Thanks for reply coopster. The connections as follows.
tickets.ticket_id -> posts.post_id
posts.user_id -> users.user_id tickets.assigned_id -> users.user_id last post date -> min(posts.date) WHERE user_id=<userid>
But actually I've already solved it by adding couple columns in tickets table(last post id, ticket author id), which is redundant for sure but that was the only quick way to solve it.
