I have a handful of groups with a large number of subgroups. Many of the subgroups share a name/title with subgroups under other parents. Upon entry each group gets a 'Code' based on it's title so I now have multiple groups with the same 'Code' in my database.
Can anyone tell me if this will create a problem? I haven't come upon any issues yet but still need to give it a full testing.
Hmm AFAIK code should be unique (kinda like URLs), I guess most modules should use IDs rather than the codes so you should be fine. The 1 place where you would have trouble is the functions addToGroupByCode which would of course cause issues.
Ok, great, that's exactly the info I was looking for. I'll jump into the db and make sure the groups all have unique codes (for this site once the groups are setup they'll be pretty static), as a 'just in case' kind of thing.
Is this a bug then? Should there be some sort of validation here?
