I am frustrated to no end. I absolutely cannot find the solution to paginating a search result that pulls info from two tables. Everything seems fine at the start. I get a page with the correct number of results (2) and the correct number of page links on the bottom (2-3) But when I click on one of the bottom links, it seems as if the code has thrown out the original query and just pulls the entire database. The number of pages at the bottom match the total entries in the database (19 pages) and shows two random entries. Continuing on to the other links, I see that it's just going through the database and pulling every entry. Not just the 6 entries from my original query.

I'm posting the entire script here, because I have no idea where the problem is. I've tried a hundred changes, and rewritten the script. I still get the same problem.

<?php
	
$host = "databaseconnect.js";


$select = mysql_select_db($db, $con);
if(!$select){
die(mysql_error());
}



	// How many adjacent pages should be shown on each side?
	$adjacents = 3;

	   First get total number of rows in data table. 
	   If you have a WHERE clause in your query, make sure you mirror it here.

do you have a demo link to your page so I can see the output of the above script?
