I'm trying to query a pivot table with Kohana's ORM and I'm wondering if there is a built in function I'm missing. Currently I only have 2 models setup for the tables "categories" and "products". There is a pivot table "categories_products", but I don't need a model for it when inserting data with this:
$product = ORM::factory('product');
The above actually didn't work as predicted for me. I kept getting an error that the property didn't exist in the model. This script has been working though.
$pivot = ORM::factory('category')->join_table('products'); //pivot table name between products and categories $productsTotal = ORM::factory('product')->join($pivot, $pivot . '.product_id', 'id')->where('category_id', $id)->find_all();
