Get content from Database when relationship (pivot table) exists

Posted 9 months ago by Kunzilla

Hi there,

i build a small project to post as post, follow other users and see them posts - when they are friends / follows.

I have three tables (simplified)

// posts
id
user_id
content

// users
id 
username

// relations (i create two inserts a -> b, b -> a)
user_id
friend_id
is_active (the requested user must approve the request)

To get the posts from one user is no problem. But how can i get the data when these relationships are "active"? Keep in mind: The relationship must be approved. I know how i setup the database etc., but i stuck on the part when i check "these two users are friends, get the data".

When a user have 100 friends, it must get the posts from all friend, there are active.

Hope you can help.
