I need more contacts for one event - because several speakers per event needed, from the com_contact. How would you best achieve this? With a link table #_jem-events_contacts or use these "custom#-fields" and enter a heron contact-ID in one of them?
(JEM 2.2.3, J! 3.9.3)
Idea: It could be a FMR to multiple contacts for events. Only change code to select multiple contacts, and save these ids into contactid field of __jem_events table.
Custom filed are global for all events. For example if you use custom field, you custom label for this custom field. If the custom field is empty, not shown, but you need more custom field, for example 5 more for contact, I don't have or not change label for one event, if you change the label of custom fields is for all events. If you had not used custom fields, then it's a alternative solution but the speaker name don't link to contact (could be use the link to contact, but it's not the same).
Thanks to you!
The custom fields are a super-innovation and almost all of them are already in use.
I think to do this (again) like 10 years ago in the old eventList (hope I can do it again): a field with comma separated ID's from com_contact. The ID order then also shows the output of the speakers (-group of the com_contact).
Hi, I fear, I will get problems if JEM is changed like that.
Because I am using the contact for addressing attending forms for those who aren't registered in Joomla but want to participate.
How does the user knows, to which person he should contact. There must be only one contact to collect all attendings. If not there will be chaotic, I think.
