I am trying to insert blog entry-type data into a database but I keep the tags in a separate table. The post table has an auto incremented id field which needs to also be the the value of a field in the tags table. I saw there was a way to do this a while ago but I can't remember where I found it. Any help is appreciated, thank you!

Code:
$this->db->insert_id()
