Drupal Node and User Referencing - Chaining Nodes and Users
Posted on 2009-05-07
I'm new to drupal 6, and have a few questions that I just can't seem to find answers to on web.
I am messing around with a social network for musicians, where I want users to be able to upload multiple albums containing multiple songs. I have many of the required modules for this already installed, I just can't figure out how to connect a user to their albums and songs. I understand I will need Views in order to display the results, but I am confused when it comes to creating the content-types and Relationships.
Here's what I have gathered so far:
I need two content-types: Albums and Audio
Link the albums to the users with the node reference URL module?
Each song needs a node reference pointing to the album.
Obviously, I don't want users to be able to create albums under another users id, so would referencing this ID thru the Node Reference URL be appropriate?
Similarly, I don't want people to be able to insert songs into an album they aren't the owner of.
Am I on the right track? Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
