Hi guys,

I'd like some helps with Model Inheritance. I have a SpecialTextRecord class which has different of TextType. To make the implementation clear, I create Testimonial extends SpecialTextRecord with the TextType is set to 1 whenever a new manager is created. The new record of a new manager is inserted inside SpecialTextRecord. 

Orchard nicely creates a SpecialTextRecord table inside the database for me. However, when I run the application, it asks for the Korchard.Testimonial which does not exists.

Is there a way I can tell Orchard that this table should be recognized as SpecialTextRecord?

Please help

Thanks in advance

I'm not sure. Orchard favors composition over inheritance (a lot) and I'm really not sure how well that plays with that sort of pattern.
