my related table is: slm_slmetiketler : it's for tags and related post ids.
Columns are:
slm_etiket: tag (primary key)
slm_postids: post ids matched with the tag
slm_idadet: quantity of post ids matched with the tag

example from current state of my table:

slm_etiket          slm_postids         slm_idadet
tag1                1                   1
tag2                1,3                 1
tag3                1,2,3                   1

Issue is: slm_idadet values are always updating with count of last tags' count of post ids. As you see true values must be 1,2 and 3.

For example the tag is : a6 in the newest post. And a6 was already tagged for 2 posts and with the new one, total posts are 3 for the tag a6. So whole tags table's count column value is updated as 3!

My code below gives no error. I am using store_result() before fetch.

What am I doing wrong? (I suspect I overwrite everything with the last foreach passage but I couldn't figure out the reason!)


  1. echo $a["tagpostids"].' - '.$adet.'<br>'; prints exactly what I require. (e.g 1 - 1 ; 1,3 - 2 ; 1,2,3 - 3. Correct post ids and correct count)
  2. I've no error_log (I also used E_USER_ERROR outputs. Again I got no warning/error.)
  3. within the 1st statement, I passed my output to an array; I freed and closed the 1st statement and then worked with 2nd one.

Best regards

/* code below tries to  update the quantity of the post ids matches*/
// update of the count of post ids for each tag (slm_idadet)
$query = "SELECT slm_postids FROM slm_slmetiketler";
$stmt = $mysqli->prepare($query);
$result = $stmt->execute();
$res = $stmt->store_result();
$bind = $stmt->bind_result($tagpostids);
$arr = array();
while ($stmt->fetch()) 
$arr[] = array('tagpostids' => $tagpostids);


$query = "UPDATE slm_slmetiketler SET slm_idadet = ?";
$stmt = $mysqli->prepare($query);
$stmt->bind_param("i", $adet);
$b = array();
foreach ($arr as $a)
$b = explode(",",$a["tagpostids"]);
$adet = count($b);
echo $a["tagpostids"].' - '.$adet.'<br>';
