Hi,

I'm a noob to ocPortal, but I have advanced html/css skills and basic php/mysql skills.

I'm creating a site where users can create reviews of products already in the database, and can also add new products that they encounter.

What is the best way to link the reviews database (catalogue) to the products catalogue? I read over the custom structured content tutorial but it didn't seem to point me in the right direction for this problem.

If there's a tutorial that covers this, or if the answer already exists somewhere, I'd be happy if someone could direct me there. Otherwise, should I go in and edit the tables in the database manually?

Hi,

There isn't really a direct answer, as there's currently no way to link catalogues without custom coding. However, entries can already have reviews (like comments), so maybe you just need one catalogue after all.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
