    Hello, So I'm Creating a complex plugin which, in order to work needs to save and pull information from the elgg database... how would I use my plugin to create the tables within the database? This is the code i need to put into the database:...
    • This has already been said many times, but I think that it is worth saying again:

      Adding new tables to Elgg is a Bad Idea. It subverts the whole API and means that you can't use the many standard functions for updating,  searching and listing entities that Elgg supplies out of the box.

      In every case that I have seen so far, the person wanting to do this does not understand the Elgg API and is trying to do something that the standard API can do better and more easily.

      MarkieDude, you may be the exception to this rule, but I really urge you to look at Elgg carefully before adding new tables.

    • I would agree. If you have allot of data and you determine that you need to store it outside of elgg. I would create a seperate database, expose it via a webservice or just interact directly. This will allow you to create facebook versions of your app or pure webbased versions. Since you didn't change the elgg database, upgrading shouldnt cause any issues.

      it will go randomly to all other profile page of other member, the person that drop a

      also advise that the person who will pick to develop this plugin should make it to work on

      and tagging friends on the picture.
