  • elgg.developer commented on a page titled creating a new entity type
    the pages are used for content consumption. a user can be a 'friend' or a 'follower' of a page and then get updated about events on the page. the page does not belong to a user like a blog or a file. by using elgg object i am bound to save my data...
  • elgg.developer created a page creating a new entity type in the group General Discussion
    Hello everyone, Iv'e searched for a similar topic but couldn't find any. In my elgg community we are in need for business pages. I want to create a page entity which will be the main entity in the site. This entity will have grater value...
    • Use an ElggObject. This is exactly what they're for. What is your hesitation on using metadata?

    • im afraid it will affect performence when selecting from a huge table.

      in addition - it doesnt seem to be the right architecture. the page is the main entity of the site - it shouldnt derive from elgg object. it should have the same hirarchy as elgg user.

    • there's no real 'right or wrong way..' ;-)
      ... 'friend' or a 'follower' of a page and then get updated about events -- can be done for any entity type.subtype.
      for performance issues - you should research intio the approrioate metrics before getting too worried or afraid about 'a huge table..' mySQL (can) use(s) the B-Tree (multi balanced structure) indexing mechanism and so access for huge databases.." is catered for ! B-Tree is 'mature' enough (since the 1970's.. until now) to be more than robust for any situation.. there's never been any replacement.

      The cost of going a new entity route -- will all be the class/ library code that you will need to write to manage your new entity ;-oO There seemsm to have been no ready-made working 'plugin' design example to easily follow except the  built into the core :- users-entity & groups entitity ;-( You have a choice...;-)
