Need some guidance - Database Driven Joomla 4.x Modules

Post by TruthSword » Fri Jun 24, 2022 8:43 am

Hey everyone,

Beginner PHP/MariaDB Coder (I have achieved a basic "CRUD") using PHP tutorials (Not Joomla Related I know). I have several Joomla Installations on my web projects that I have been working on since 2012, 2016.

I have finally got my server running to a point where I need to delve further.

I found this link here: https://docs.joomla.org/J3.x:Creating_a ... e_Database

I don't see this type of documentation for J4.x: However I have found these in the following:

https://docs.joomla.org/Category:Joomla!_4.x

1) https://docs.joomla.org/J4.x:Inserting_ ... _JDatabase

2) https://docs.joomla.org/J4.x:Selecting_ ... _JDatabase

Do these work the same way with Modules? I am trying to achieve something like the following:

I want people to be able to access my website; setup their account (which includes their location), and then build the logged in homepage around their location with database aggregated modules, search, drop-downs, etc. and have them populate data dynamically from the database based on variables.

Once I can work my way to this point; I want to be able to allow each user to change their location (not from their profile location), but to virtually go elsewhere and see the data from that region/location as if they were there.

Any sort of guidance to help me achieve such a thing would be greatly appreciated.

I will read and walk through any guide (on joomla.org) or elsewhere if it can key me in to what I need.

Thank you all for this great CMS and Community Forums.

;)

Per Yngve Berg,

Thank you for your reply Sir. I don't know much about API's or how this would assist me in learning what I aforementioned.

I do appreciate the link and the knowing it exists for when I am no longer just a beginner learning the proper path to achieve my goals and conquer my obstacles.
