In my mind this binding of the data to the template ^could just be a custom snippet in the template head. TBH I don't know what 'bind' truly means, how low-level that connection must be made, but it seems to control the template rather than be in some sense subordinate to the template. A solid bit of php should be fine to get the job done, whatever values or restrictions can be imposed.

Now when you have what seems to be dozens of them, you have to approach it in a more orderly fashion of course. And that would seem to involve digging into the underlying structure of those multiple...sets of data. Can or should they be broken apart into separate factors?

MIGX may be attractive, but there are many tools, just thought I would overshare a bit]]>

It would take some custom code to search for and display the records with a particular attribute set value.

[update] On second thought, the getExtResources snippet might do that for you.]]>

Using ClassExtender, is it possible to bind sets of resource fields to templates to create what Magento calls, an 'attribute set'? (so I'm not binding all 75 fields to every resource)

Will the extra resource fields be available to Importx?]]>

maybe one tv to determine the appropriate attributes for a given session makes the most sense here, or even possibly broken up into groups]]>

LK: I am a bit unsure of the relationship between MIGXTV and the issue that Bob mentioned. Does MIGX help or not help with this issue? Does it help a bit or a lot?

There is no relationship - It doesn't help. TVs are never really a good idea to search and filter resources by. A repeating MIGXTV with a heading for the attribute and an input box for the attribute value is probably just an easier way to go (as you suggested in your post) when it comes to importing with importx.

The preferred way would be to extend the resource object or create custom db tables and write your own import script to map the data.

Does it matter what number the resource IDs start at?

Resource ids start at one and go up, never repeating

Usually we end up using a tool to re-write the url into the alias, so the alias is a bit more important

Bob: What's preferred if there will be too many tvs?
