Hi guys

I'm looking to have "Field Collections" ( http://drupal.org/project/field_collection ) for my nodes - basically an array of fields which can be repeated multiple times within a node.

My understanding is that because "Field Collections" are entities, Mongo creates a new collection for "Field Collection" fields, separate from the collection for node fields. [fields_current.field_collection_item] vs [fields_current.node]

As a result, when I create a node, two mongo documents are created, one for the regular node fields and another for the "Field Collection" fields attached to said node.

I would have expected "Field Collections" fields to be stuffed into the Node fields document as array(s).

Is there a simple way of achieving this ? Any pointers would be appreciated

Many thanks

Collections are entities and so have separate storage the same is true in MySQL. Really this module only supports core features. If you want to roll a patch though obviously it would get committed if acceptable.
