Database Type
« on: October 16, 2013, 11:16:33 am »

A PM with an important question
hi sir!
i've installed your component and have a feeling that it will do the best for me and i'll try to do something good for you back ;)
but here is the thing, in order to make component to work, i needed to change Database Settings from Mysqli to Jdiction_mysqli.
is that ok? what if tomorrow i'll have to install another component, which will want it's own database type too, what is then?

thank you in advance,
best regards

You can't install another component that needs a different database driver. The problem is that jdiction, like other multilang components, intercepts the database queries and modifies the query and or the result.

I don't know any other component that need its own database driver, because there is no need to ;-)

But if there is really an awesome component that is a must for many people, I will try to support this component too.

hello again,
i just ment, what will happen if any other developers will do such thing,
but now i understand: in order to be able to translate EVERYTHING in joomla (this component can do it), you should integrate your component a bit deeper than usually :)

thank you for great job and fast support!
