Provide access to a model from a Component
Say you have a model called FoosFum in a file called foos_fum.php

$this->FoosFum = &new FoosFum();

Limit the size of your controller

If you only use a model in certain circumstances do not use the $uses array, use loadModel where you need it.

    This sounds like a configuration issue or something. Try the Google Group or CakePHP website for a solution… Sorry, I don’t have any ideas.
