What are your thoughts on the best way to add extra fields to forum sections (/nodes)? They will contain a short string. And could you call these values in templates easily - perhaps with something like; node.my_field ?
Also, is it really hacky to simply create and set new columns in the DB directly via mysql prompt?
Thanks Marcus. I think we'll need to keep the node descriptions tho. I know it's hacky but I might just add them to the table - I just need to make sure I can call them easily with something like node.my_field
