Using Count on 'Joined' tables

Hi there

I have two tables, pages and sections, of which pages are a subset of
sections. I'm listing out the sections in a list and want to include a
COUNT of how many pages each section has within it.

Pages contain a 'sectionid' field to join it to the 'id' in the seciton
table but im unsure how to join, and group  to get a count of the
number of pages in each section (i.e. in each result row)

If anyone can point me in the right direction, id be eternally greatful

not sure if this is what you need exactly, but if your running two
separate mysql queries on the same page just:

$totalrows = mysql_num_rows($query1)+mysql_num_rows($query2);

the syntax will be along the lines of:

select s.section, sum( from sections s
left join pages on p.section_id = l.section_id
group by section_id
