I understand that the current platform API allows us to view Extended Attributes of objects (i.e. groups/posts) but not add/modify them. Will this functionality be added to a future version? Is there a recommended use case for extended attributes or is this something that should be avoided?
We are re-working some of our site's features - and I would like to stay on the correct course of working with the platform. Extended attributes appear to be a nice choice as the data I am looking to add is extremely small and very simple. It would also mean that I would not have to create custom tables to store this data.
Any help is appreciated.
Ron, support for adding/updating extended attributes was added to the public APIs in the 6.1 release - hot off the presses!
Extended attributes are a good option for storing custom data along with a post, section, group, user.
Dan - you have totally made my day! Now I am off to download the latest version....
