I'm working on migrating an existing project, that is currently made in CodeIgniter and I'm trying to port it to Craft. Everything is great except...
I'm running into two issues:
- Have a page counter (view count)
Looking at things, it seems any add/update functionality needs to go via a Plugin. Is that correct? For a simple update:
update results set clicks = clicks + 1 where id = ".$articleID."
I need to write an entire plugin/module?
- I'm using MySQL's NATURAL LANGUAGE SEACH, which just changed the Query a bit, which is nothing more then:
HERE MATCH (title) AGAINST ('super keywords' IN NATURAL LANGUAGE MODE)
I need to also make a Plugin?
I'm a bit in a hurry and don't want to completely dive into plugin development for these quite forward issues.
Can anyone tell me when I'm using pluginfactory.io - to get started - which of these settings I have to switch on? Controllers? Elementtypes? Records? Services? Tasks? Utilities?
I hope I'm wrong and could implement these things more directly...
