This plugin creates a user-object relationship table and a user-object relationship metadata
table. Relationships between a user (logged-in or IP) are created and added to the relationship
table; metadata (ex. votes, flags, and ratings) is attached to that particular relationship
via the metadata table. This is a framework; it is intended for use in voting, flagging,
and similar user applications where a user-affiliated metadata is attached to an object.
Supported object tables include wp_posts, wp_comments, wp_users, and wp_bp_activity.
Functions are provided to add/get/delete relationships; metadata is added via the native WordPress
Functions provided by this framework include:
ucc_uof_object_reference()returns an array of object-integer assignments. Use this to look up the
appropriate value for $object_ref based on the object table (wp_posts, wp_comments, wp_users,
wp_bp_activity are currently supported) to which you are attaching a user relationship.
ucc_uof_add_relationship( $user_id = 0, $user_ip = 0, $object_id, $object_ref )adds a relationship
to the relationship table if none exists and returns the relationship id for that user/object pairing.
ucc_uof_delete_relationship( $user_id = 0, $user_ip = 0, $object_id, $object_ref )will delete a
relationship if there are no metadata entries left for that relationship.
ucc_uof_get_relationship()returns the relationship id for that user/object pairing.
ucc_uof_get_user_id()returns the current user id or 0 if not logged in.
ucc_uof_get_user_ip()returns 0 if the current user is logged in, or an ip2long() if anonymous.
// Create or get the user-object relationship. $relationship = ucc_uof_get_relationship( $user_id, $user_ip, $object_id, $object_ref ); if ( empty( $relationship ) ) $relationship = ucc_uof_add_relationship( $user_id, $user_ip, $object_id, $object_ref ); // Add user_object_meta. if ( $mode == 'delete' ) delete_metadata( 'uof_user_object', $relationship, '_your_meta_key' ); else update_metadata( 'uof_user_object', $relationship, '_your_meta_key', 'your meta key value' );
