Take your content to the next level with custom fields!
Ever wanted your visitors to see additional attributes in articles, users, and contacts? Through custom fields, you have a seamlessly integrated way to show them on the front end.
Custom fields offer up to 15 different type such as lists, text fields, and dates ... The site administrator will be able to create them for articles, users, and contacts. When editing an article, the fields show up in a separate tab and can be filled with data. Through field groups, it is possible to group the custom fields into their own tabs. ACL, multilanguage, layouts, and various other options are available to tailor them to your needs.
Through some plugin events, 3rd party extension developersare able to easily integrate the custom fields feature into their components. They will appear as if part of their extension, similar to categories, tags or history.
A new plugin group, “Fields”, allows you to define new custom field types. For example, a Twitter plugin can show Tweets on the article page for a given hashtag.
