Database Normalisation - El Forum - 09-03-2009


I need some help with database normalization. Basically I have five/eight pages where content will be brought down from a database. I'm not sure if the way I've set it out is the most efficient way of doing things.

I have all the results grouped into a table
Quote:ID Object_ID Value

1 contact hello, lorem ipsum
2 about bonjour, lorem ipsum

I am then using a MYSQL WHERE statement to use the Object_ID to determine which page the result is displayed on.

Is there a better way of doing this?

No, you have no more data that needs to be normalised. I would recommend giving your fields more meaningful names though.


Quote:id, uri, body


Quote:id, slug, content

Those were just for example. I'm using different names for them.

Thanks very much though.
