In this article, we describe the directory structure used by yiiframework.com - the official Yii framework website. While this structure may look overly complicated for small projects or may not be optimal in some sense, we believe it is appropriate for medium or large projects in a team development environment. In fact, we have successfully used the similar structure in some other big projects.
I saw many posts that community newbie is confuse in image/photo upload with random name.
so I post this topic covering all useful things regarding to image/photo upload(not covering image attribute related functionality)
If you have to display a overview of related data in a table,
you can use the CListView, create your view with table/tr/td tags
and implement db-queries in the view to display detaildata of the current (master-)record.
This little tutorial explains a way how you can retrieve more parameters from Yii::app()->user by adding a component that extends CWebUser and retrieves the user information from database table named User.
These features provide endless possibilities and unbelievable flexibility, but as current documentation does not give more than a few examples, it might be difficult to fully understand their internals and requirements.
