Question Question Regarding Data Management with Kunena

8 years 8 months ago #1 by GlobeOfGeek
Hey, I have a quick question regarding the management of data with components such as kunena.

How does Kunena make it's own tables in mysql that contain information found in the user tables? For example: When you install kunena forum, their is a new bunch of tables in the database that hold user information from kunena, but they got the information from tablename_users.

I'm wanting to make my own component from scratch, and I'm needing to have this component pick up information from other tables in my database, but I don't know how...

Thanks for the help :) Liking Kunena very much!
