    Ok, i haven't databased in awhile so help me out. I have two tables, forum_posts and forum_topics.

    i want to count the total number of entries made by a single user_id in the tables, with one query.

    To be clearer, this is my current implementation:

    SELECT COUNT(*) AS c FROM `exp_forum_posts` WHERE `author_id` = 'X'
    SELECT COUNT(*) AS c FROM `exp_forum_topics` WHERE `author_id` = 'X'

    how can i get the same results with one query?
