Use 1 Datapage And 1 Table For Both Logged-In And Unlogged-In User?



I have "user_table" and "item_table" and both have the field "user_id" which is unique in "user_table" but not in "item_table".


I have "sell_item_datapage" which was going to require auth for members.


**How can I allow both logged-in users and unlogged-in users to submit an item to sell?**


Do I need 2 datapages?  


Also, do you think I need an additional table or additional fields?

Hello Jason,


Welcome to Caspio forum!


As far as I know, it is better to use two DataPages, one with an Authentication and another without it.

You can use the default user, for example, "guest" and display default login-password under Login fields, but I am not sure that it is the best idea.


If all items are sell together, I mean, it is not important for a buyer who sells an item (an authenticated user or not), I would like to recommend you to use one table.


If you want to work separately with both kinds of items, you can create Views that filter items by the "user_id" field - "is blank" and "is not blank" correspondingly.


I hope, it helps.
