Hi Chris,

I was wondering if you will be covering the entity API in the future. The online documentation the entities are pretty confusing.

Thank you very much,

Hi Arash, No videos yet on

Hi Arash,

No videos yet on the Entity API, though it's a common request. I will be getting some coverage of it as soon as I can.

Thank you!

any entity videos yet?

I'm pretty sure I'll be working with entities soon and was surprised not to see any videos on a search for "entity". I did find this post however but is over a year old noting there'd be coverage of entities soon. Have I missed any relevant videos searching entity?

I take that back after seeing the video search box below this post where it found the video: How to use the EntityFieldQuery class to match certain criteria and display the results

Hi Bob, So far we haven't

Hi Bob,

So far we haven't covered entities, but definitely hope to before too long. I wanted to make sure we tackles some of the more requested subjects first. Thanks for putting your vote in for entity videos, though, that helps bump it up on the list.

Another Call for Entities - and possibly relationships...

Another bump for the same topic - I am currently mid project on something that involves me creating multiple entities (fieldable) with dynamic parent / child / grandchild relationships between them depending on the page I instantiate the entity creation from!

This is becoming pretty interesting in terms of module development for someone who has always taken the sitebuilder or themer route before!
