I'm having trouble getting a query to work


mysql> SELECT thread.title, thread.threadid, thread.postuserid, attachment.attachmentid FROM thread LEFT JOIN attachment ON (attachment.userid = thread.postuserid) WHERE thread.forumid = 4 ORDER BY threadid DESC LIMIT 7;



Code:
---------------
Code is only visible to licensed users, and only when logged into the forums.
---------------



The above query stumbles when it hits the NULL.. I've tried several other queries here and it either shows only topics from a forum with attachments or only topics without attachments - I want it to show both!

What I wish to acheive:
On a non vB page grab the last 7 threads from a specific forum and output the results with the first attachment then the topic title next to it BUT if one of the topics does not have an attached image in the first thread to still output the post title -

example:


Code:
---------------
Code is only visible to licensed users, and only when logged into the forums.
---------------



Desired Query:


Code:
---------------
Code is only visible to licensed users, and only when logged into the forums.
---------------



Thanks for any help -
