php How to link comment sql to the blog sql

first time here and I hope you guys can help me further.

I have created a blogging system to use by mine employees via an admin login system. As well a login system and registration system to use by my customers/viewers. So now I created a comment section for the blog system where people can commenting. The problem is that on each blog the comments are the same. How can link the comments to each blogID?


     $id = $_SESSION['user'];

     // if session is not set this will redirect to login page
    if( !isset($_SESSION['user']) ) {
    $buttonlog = 'Login';   
    $smglog = 'Log nu snel in!';
    }if(isset($_SESSION['user'])) {

        $smglog = ' Logout';
        $buttonlog = ' Mijn account';

     // select loggedin users detail
     $sql = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `userlogin` WHERE `id` = '$id'");
     $userRow = mysql_fetch_array($sql);

     $sql1 = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `comments`");
     $userRow1 = mysql_fetch_array($sql1);

    <?php require('includes/config.php'); 

    $stmt = $db->prepare('SELECT postID, postTitle, postCont, postDate, imgBackground, imgNewspost FROM blog_posts WHERE postID = :postID');
    $stmt->execute(array(':postID' => $_GET['id']));
    $row = $stmt->fetch();

    //if post does not exists redirect user.
    if($row['postID'] == ''){
        header('Location: ./');


function setComments(){
        $id = $_POST['id'];
        $username = $_POST['username'];
        $date = $_POST['date'];
        $message = $_POST['message'];

        mysql_query("INSERT INTO `comments` (id, username, date, message) VALUES ('$id','$username', '$date', '$message')");


function deleteComments(){
        $id = $_POST['id'];

        mysql_query("DELETE FROM `comments` WHERE `comments`.`id` = '$id'");


if (isset($_SESSION['user'])){

echo            "<form method='POST' action='".setComments()."'>
                <input type='hidden' name='id' value=''>
                <input type='hidden' name='username' value='".$_SESSION['user']."'>
                <input type='hidden' name='date' value='".date('Y-m-d H:i:s')."'>
                <textarea name='message'> </textarea>
                <input style='' type='submit' name='commentSubmit' value='REAGEER'>
    echo " Log in om te reageren";


    <div class="reacties"><br></div>


 $sql = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `comments`");
 while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($sql)){
        $id= $row['username'];
        $sql2 = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `userlogin` WHERE `id` = '$id'");
        if ($row2 = mysql_fetch_assoc($sql2)){
                echo "<div class='commentsDiv'>";
                echo "<img style='margin: 5px; left: -25px; width: 100px; height: 100px; border: 1px black solid;position: relative; display: inline;'src='".$row2['image']."'>";
                echo '<p style="color: #b73a09;font-size: 16px; font-weight: bold; top: 120px; left: 0px; display: inline; position: absolute;"> '.$row2['uname'].'</p>';

            echo "";
                if($_SESSION['user'] == $row2['id']){

                        echo "<form class='commentDelete' method='POST' action='".deleteComments()."'>

                        <button type=''>Reply</button>

            } else{
                echo "<p class='commentMessage'> Je moet inglogd zijn om te reageren! </p>";
                        echo "</div>";




When you are entering users’ comments in the comments table of your database.Send the blog-post-id(unique for every blog post) along with rest of the form. you can accomplish that using a hidden input like this

<input type="hidden" name="blogpost_id" id="blog_entry" value="<?php echo $postId; ?>"/>

and when you are loading comments on a blog-posts page select comments from comments table and sort them using that blog-post-id. like this

$query = "SELECT * FROM blog_comments WHERE blogpost_id='{$postId}';
$result = mysqli_query($connection,$query);
