I am trying to update a record with a few user maintainable fields as well as some fields (creation & update timestamps and created_by & updated_by fields) that are set programmatically.
Yii’s default behavior is to resave the record and reset the update timestamp and the updated_by fields whenever the “Save” button is clicked even if none of the user enterable fields have been modified.
I wish to change this behavior. I can think of many ways to do so, but I am wondering what the preferred method would be among more experienced yii programmers.
Thank you very much for having mercy on me.
