I'm going to be inserting some data into a channel via a custom Add-on. It looks as thought I should be using the Channel Entries API in order to do this, which is fine.
What I need to do first though is select some supporting data from some existing Channels. There doesn't seem to be anything in the above API to fetch existing data unless I missed it. What's the best way to accomplish this? I'm happy to use the DB Class, if that's the only way of doing it. I just wanted to check there wasn't a preferred method of doing this before I go re-inventing the wheel!
Any help, gratefully received.
