Hey, I am building a social networking site and I have a home page where all the posts are visible. I want to create a change in the database when a post loads so that I can hide the posts that have been seen by the user. I am not able to find a way, can anyone help?
Hello @rthdvinay welcome to the community!
Backend database trigger
Create a new dB trigger event:
Select the data type
Only when: thing before change is empty and thing now is not empty
This will detect when a new thing’s entry is created in the database
Add any actions needed upon this event
Thank you for the reply… let me try this out!
Didn’t work man… any other ideas?
Oops. When I read this post I thought that a new entry was created. I see that his is not the case. Thus my suggestion for a dB trigger on a new entry does not apply.
Explore the dB trigger with a change in condition… but this may be an overkill for what I understand that you need
Explore the event “do every X seconds” and set it so that it fires when an element becomes visible. This should allow you to detect when someone has seen something and then make a change to your database.
