Hello @Victor !
Thank you for your Clone App, I appreciate you taking the time and effort to explain things. Now I understand how to make a nested list- to add a new list under component of the first list. The moment that was done, the properties with relationships start to be available for adding via Magic Text!
Here:) Please ignore the vote count, I know they do not tally with the number of users, because the vote count was done before I start signing users in.
With this, I proceeded to make the app I had in mind. It’s a simple app. I have a predefined database. Meaning the information is already in the database for simplicity. Like this:
These data are in the database. The app I have in mind, takes sign in users to a home page like this:
So in the home page there is this list that you see, you choose your teacher(not real names shown). Let’s say I am a 5th Grader, I want to go to check out my teacher’s page. I will click on Catherine James. This list is not an issue. Very straightfoward.
After you on Catherine James, you should get a page like this, let’s call it “teacher’s profile”:
I thought I could use a simple list to do that, Victor, I was wrong again! If I use a list, they will just display for all the teachers. So the page “teacher’s profile” I actually made using text component
The text component did allow me to display properties that are under Character Teacher. It worked as intended, but I prefer to use a list because if I use a bunch a text components, things will start to get messy once my property list grew.
Another gentlemen in the forum suggested to use a nested list, I appreciate the advice but if I have more properties under a teacher, this would become nightmarish.
First of all, I would like to know Adalo sees all these data- I thought the data I have in the database under Category teacher is very straightforward and I should be able to display an individual teachers property with a list ( like for the case of Mrs. Catherine James, displaying things that SHE and ONLY SHE likes.). Moreover, this time there is no “relationships” involved. Alas, I haven’t been able to at this point!
Secondly, if I want to display a list for Mrs. Catherine James, my guess is that I need to somehow create another category in the database, unfortunately I am pretty confused at this stage as to what category of data and what property to create.
Another question that is not list related ( you probably could send me a video link of this), let’s say Mrs. Catherine James likes Starbucks, and this is shown in her profile under Favorite Coffee, how do I make “Starbucks” a clickable link and have it go to a giftcard page of Starbuck? Well, you do not have to find me the link of Starbucks, my point is - how to I make a text a clickable link? Especially this text is pulled from a category under database.
Thank you Victor! I eager to demystify all these List related challenges:)
