It's very common to see new Yii users confusing the relations HAS_ONE and BELONGS_TO, and getting it wrong means you won't get proper values back. And though we'll talk about HAS_MANY as well, we're specifically omitting the MANY_MANY relation because it's a whole different animal.

Getting to Understand Hierarchical RBAC Scheme

Created 3 years ago by daemonsTutorials19 comments – viewed 75,155 times – ( +59 ) – version 1.1
Authentication and Authorization is a good tutorial. Among other topics, it describes basic aspects of Yii's RBAC implementation. But however hard I read the tutorial, I couldn't understand how exactly the hierarchy works.

Use shortcut functions to reduce typing

Created 5 years ago by qiangTutorials8 comments – viewed 40,986 times – ( +56 ) – version 1.1
Because Yii intends to be integrated nicely with third-party libraries, it does not define any global functions. Everything in Yii needs to be addressed with full class name or object scopes. For example, to access the current user, we need to use Yii::app()->user; to access application parameters, we need Yii::app()->params['name']; and so on. While editors like textmate can help alleviate the problem of these lengthy typings, it is worthwhile to define global shortcut functions to some commonly used method calls. They will make the application code look cleaner.
