I have a query something like this:
SELECT title, desc, date FROM tablename ORDER BY date ASC, title ASC;
Works fine when the data actually has a date. Issue is, date submission is optional, so I sometimes get 0000-00-00 as a date, which has the unfortunate effect of placing all nondated rows on top.
So, I then tried this:
SELECT title, desc, date FROM tablename ORDER BY date DESC, title ASC;
Which sort of works, but not really -- all items with dates (non 0000-00-00) get listed in descending order, followed by all items with 0000-00-00.
What I want to do is order by date ASC, title ASC, but only if the date != 0000-00-00, but if date is = 0000-00-00, then just ORDER BY title ASC on those (I think I explained that correctly).
The only ways I can think to do this are non-SQL based (either 2 queries, or, each query just populates an in-memory array, and then I sort using PHP).
Is there a SQL query that can do this?</div
