Hi,

The query is quite simple. Play with Count() and Group by (with parentpostid) options in the SQL query. Give your best try and let us know.

Thank you,

This should do it (replace table_name with the name of your table):

SELECT count(ForumPostsId) as posts, ForumPostsId FROM table_name WHERE parentpost=0 GROUP BY ForumPostsId
