This article shows how to add foreign key constraints to concrete5 packages or blocks by using db.xml files or a package controller. Using foreign keys is important to help ensure data integrity in the database.
It is often useful or necessary to include parameters in URL addresses. Many people use one of PHP’s superglobals for this, but that is not a pretty approach. In this short article, you will learn a better solution while maintaining pretty URLs.
Displaying the advanced TinyMCE editor in your concrete5 forms is very easy, but finding the documentation on how to do it is not so easy. In this short article, we will show you how to accomplish it with just a few lines of code.

Using a modular directory structure can logically separate parts of an application. By default, a Zend Framework application does not make use of such a structure, so in this article we shall see how to easily change this.
It is often necessary to add data to form elements from outside of the form. Examples of scenarios where this would be useful include data fetched from a data store or data saved in sessions.
