I'm building a homepage for our actors group. I've got a page class ActorPage on which I display a list of the plays this actor has been in. To do this, I've installed a many-many-relation to the PlayPage class.
So far so good, this works.

But now I would like to add additional information to this relation: Which was the team members role?
I have no idea how to achieve this. I guess the information should be stored in the playpage_actorpages table in the database where the relation is stored. But is there a way to write to that database?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks, Nicolas

Hi Nicolas, you need to store the additional data using DataObjects, look in the tutorial for dataobjects - relationships

good luck!
