Using the Configuration class with multistore

You are probably asking yourself what about the Configuration class? We used it to store the module configuration, so what do we need to do if we want to make different configurations for each shop? The answer is: nothing.

The Configuration class is natively compliant with the multistore feature. If we look closer to the code of this class, we will see that the loadConfiguration method retrieves configuration values and splits them as per the shop:

if ($row['id_shop'])
self::$_CONF[$lang]['shop'][$row['id_shop']][$row['name']]= $row['value'];
else if ($row['id_shop_group'])
self::$_CONF[$lang]['group'][$row['id_shop_group']][$row['name']] = $row['value'];
  self::$_CONF[$lang]['global'][$row['name']] = $row['value'];

In fact, for modules that only use the Configuration class method (such as mymodpayment) and no custom MySQL table, they are automatically compliant with the multistore feature.
