I have a lot of trouble in understanding the database/model structure and how to work with the query builder. I tried playing a bit with leftJoins but i cannot seem to make complex queries in craft 3. I would like some help with a query.
The matrix field is as follows:
- audience (block type)
- targetName (field type: category)
- points (field type: dropdown)
We use this to segment entries for certain users so we can show users that are segmented more relevant entries
Before i'm running the query i have the ids of the audience.targetName i want to favour in a variable let say $mainSegment.
What i am trying to do:
I want to query entries with the default order "postDate" but i like to place the relevant entries first. so all the entries that has the category id i specify must be first.
For example when a user is segmented on targetName(category) with id 2. I want to favour all the posts that has a block type with segment 2 selected on the matrix in my order by.
I could not find a lot of craft examples with complex queries so it would be very helpful if someone could give me some examples.
