We are using TC 9.2, Please let me know if it possible or any suggestion on workarounds
Have to save the widget configuration data to a custom table, that is when widget is opened in edit page mode. On clicking save on widget configuration the data should save in custom table. Any string, blog, group extra taken input in widget configuration.
Why do you want to do this???
There are number of blogs in a group. There are two pages, first would list few blogs(it would be set through widget configuration) and second page would do the same. Have to save mapping for each page.
That is for individual page from that group which blogs are listing on the page.
Can do through widget, with each hit to page saving the data through to custom table, but looking for a better option. There would be number of user accessing the page, want to avoid unnecessary connections to DB.
Hope, made me more clear on objective
Objective is not quite clear.
OK, let me try it again ,
Using widget configuration, listing different blogs of a group in different pages.
Have to keep a mapping page-> Groups -> Blogs on the page (selected through widget configuration) to create a report. The blogs would be changed frequently by content managers.
Hope this clears
There is no reason to do this in a custom table, you are simply duplicating what the widget already does. That being said implementing as configuration is not super simple. Our API does support doing this, but creating a control is not easy as you have to create a sortable list. We already do this in the forum-Browse Forum widget.
We should extend this everywhere, we just have not yet so I have filed it:
