Farm database question

edited October 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi Im new to Vanilla but getting my head around it - my PHP skills are intermediate. Quick question: What is a Farm connection? Is it for connecting to a database other that than the default? If so I think its what Im looking for - but how do I implement it in my code? I basically have a second database sitting beside the vanilla db. It houses a list of 6 digit codes. Im building an extention that functions like so: 1. Adds an extra field to the application form (for the 6 digit code) 2. checks the 6 digit code against codes in the database and returns validation error (along side Vanilla's default validation) if not found Any help or pointers appriciated! Cheers L

    The Extended Application Form add-on does add fields to the regular Application Form. If you look at that, you should be able to figure out how to make an add-on to add your field.

    thanks for feedback jimw - I can add a field no problem. What I really want to know is how to use the FarmDatabase function and what it was intended for thanks L

    Its a way to get replication across multiple databases--something most people won't have to use.

    Add an AddWhere call to every DB access? # 18
