Hi

I have 2 tables, faq and faq_categories...i have a join that work, and so far, I was a happy camper.

But...requirements change, and i have to change the join, but i don't know how to do it

Here is the current code that works just fine:

Code:
SELECT faq.* , faq_categories.categoryname 
                                      FROM faq 
                                      JOIN faq_categories
                                      ON ( faq.catid = faq_categories.catid)
So far, all faq belongs to one category...but from now on, there will be faq which will not belonng to any category....and that complicate things, at least for me.

How should I change this code in order to display the faq which does not have catid?

Here are my tables:

Code:
CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `faq_categories` (
  `catid` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `parentid` int(11) DEFAULT NULL,
  `categoryname` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
  `categoryname_en` varchar(255) DEFAULT NULL,
  `description` text,
  `description_en` text,
  `metatags` text,
  `metatags_en` text,
  `sorder` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `visible` tinyint(4) NOT NULL,
  `categoryphoto` varchar(255) DEFAULT '',
  PRIMARY KEY (`catid`),
  KEY `parentid_fk` (`parentid`)
) ENGINE=MyISAM  DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8 AUTO_INCREMENT=204 ;


CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `faq` (
  `faqid` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `catid` int(11) DEFAULT NULL,
  `question` text NOT NULL,
  `question_en` text NOT NULL,
  `answer` text,
  `answer_en` text,
  `metatags` text,
  `metatags_en` text,
  `sorder` tinyint(4) DEFAULT NULL,
  `visible` tinyint(4) DEFAULT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY (`faqid`)
) ENGINE=MyISAM  DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8 AUTO_INCREMENT=6 ;
Any help will be deeply appreciated.
