CakePHP – Accessing an un-related model from a controller action

Written by James McDonald

November 14, 2011

Check point 9 here => http://nuts-and-bolts-of-cakephp.com/2008/06/09/15-essential-cakephp-tips/

This didn’t work for me:

$this->load('IgnoreList');

I got this error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined method EdiRecordsController::load()

This worked

$MyModel = ClassRegistry::init('IgnoreList');		
$ignore_list = $MyModel->find('list');

CakePHP version: 2.0.2
