Im using Computed Fields to get a node's menu weight as a CCK field available for View's sorting. Im using the method from post 28 here:
The only problem is that if the menu changes then I need to update all the node's CCK field. One solution is to manually edit and save each node, but this is impractical for a large site. So how can I update my computed field for all nodes of a certain content type?
Ive done some reading and it seems this can be done with php code, views bulk operation or rules. Ive no idea which method to follow. Im making this site for a client so either the updating needs to be automatic or their could be a 'button' they click.
Assuming I used rules to edit and save all nodes of a certain content type whenever a new node is created or a menu is edited. Would that be OK? How many nodes can you edit in this way without overloading the server?
