CB - How can I create multiple entries to a tab?

11 years 4 months ago #151876 by xbumble
Hi there,

I wonder if someone could please assist me.

I am creating a system for a client and they want to be able to store information against a registered user in Communnity Builder 1.3.

This is fine and I have created a number of new tabs, each with the relevant input fields for the information they want to collate inside the relevant tab.

However, one other thing they want to do is to store the date, amount, benefactor and notes for a user each time that user donates money to charity.

Now I could create a 'donation' tab and add a date field, donation amount field, benefactor field and a notes field but that would only let the client enter one set of information when they want to be able to continuosly add more information for the same field sets each time the user donates more money to chairty.

In a normal database I would have a second table linked to the first via an ID and then I could keep adding new data which is linked but can also be dealt with seperately and critically, have multiple records.

Is there a way I can build this relationship inside CB 1.3, and if so could someone please let me know how I can go about this. Also, if this is possible can I create a MySQL statement that would add up all the donations to display the grand total at the bottom.

Many thanks for any help given.

You'll need to develop a new plugin to accomplish what you're wanting. I recommend using ProfileBook and ProfileGallery as examples to base your development off of as well as other available plugins.

If your donations were coming from CBSubs you then could of course use professional subscriber CB Query Field incubator project to display total donations (the plugin allows displaying result of a query as a field on users profile).
