|MYSQL: how do I select rows where a column contains a certain string?|
| 8:37 pm on Nov 7, 2004 (gmt 0)|
SELECT * FROM blog_posts WHERE keywords CONTAINS 'design' ORDER BY timestamp
but that gave a query error

You need somthing dealing with the mysql full text searching I believe.

oh well see I need to have it find rows where the keywords column *contains* "design" but may also contain other stuff
so say I have a row where keywords = "ewoinfd cweowm wo design fwpom dwopkjo weo"
I want the query to return that row

SELECT * FROM blog_posts WHERE keywords LIKE '%design%' ORDER BY timestamp
