I’m building a type of CMS and have a question about sharing code/
tables. So i have a typical blog setup with a ‘posts’ controller
which has many comments. I need to also make an ‘article’ controller
which is similar to posts but different enough that it needs its own
controller. Comments though will work exactly the same. Rather than
remake the comments table/code (i.e. ‘article_comments’ controller),
i’d prefer to just share the general comments controller/table. Is
there a way to do this?
Table schema for comments table would then be something like:
BelongsToType (i.e. category ‘article’, ‘post’, etc)
ParentID (i.e. a specific ‘articleID’, ‘postID’)
(BelongsToType column wouldnt be needed if I could make the post or
article ID unique across both of those tables though).
Thanks so much,
