Store value in database table?

Store value in database table?

Hey Stephen,

Big question for ya....Is there a way with Metamod to write a value to a table based on the category in Mosets Tree that the User Selects? 

During Registration on my site, the user will check to see if their community is listed in Mosets Tree, if not, then they create it....once they arrive at their community page I need to run a script that will store the community category into their user information.  Can this be done from metamod???

Thanks for your wonderful help as always! 

Sondra

P.S.  did I donate last time when I said I was going to???  I can't remember

I'm obviously doing wayyyy tooo much, I just ran across our conversation where you said that it would not be a good idea to write to the table every time you access a particular page.  Sorry bout that!

Re: Store value in database table?

Yeah, I stand by that... if you feel yourself wanting to write something into a database table like this, sit down and have a cup of tea till the feeling passes smile

I am sure there are times when it might be a good idea, but it's often time a poor replacement for doing things that should really be inside a component or plugin or something.
