Re: Database for playbook


The database support in WebWorks is seamless, it works exactly as it would in a regular web page. There are no special config.xml entries to enable it.

Google around, there are plenty of examples you can draw from. And if you want to make your life easier, check out persistence.js Smiley Happy

Re: Database for playbook

This is by far the best example on the forum. Have tried all the suggested ones but the DDLUK one explains the basic concept and serves as a great start project to modify.
