Inserting into multiple models and a pivot table

Posted 5 years ago by MDN

I'm trying to create a basic thesaurus. I have a words table, an alternatives table and a alternative_word pivot table.

I have a Word model and an Alternative model each with a belongsToMany realtionship to each other. My form is very simple with just a word field and an alternative field. I know how to insert using one model, but I don't know how to insert into two models and then create the pivot for it. What is the best way of handling this?
