I cannot figure out how to do this with cake - would not be an issue to me using plain old SQL but that’s boring so I thought I would give CakePhp a go. I have tried to follow the book in the Associations section under Using the ‘through’ Option.
I have these tables
I can get and contain the data I need from the Associations and Members tables without issue and the join table does it things and retrieves the correct members for the association. Where I run into an issue is when I want to get to the position data.
At the end I want to be able to return the position name of each member of the association. A member may be joined to multiple associations and have a different position in each association.
All my models are baked with cake and at the moment I don’t get any of the position names returned.
What is the correct way to do this as I uses these sorts of structures with join tables and associated data frequently.
Hope you can help.
