A Joomla Custom Field like Joomla Tags?

Postby Sukinoz » Tue Mar 06, 2018 2:09 pm

Hello,

I need to create a Joomla Custom Field where the user can select from a dropdown with predefined values, but also someone can add their own values. (The same way as the Joomla Tags)

Is it possible a Joomla Custom Field like the Joomla Tags?

Thanks in advanced.

What is available is mentioned and if it is not mentioned it is not available.

This can be realized with a custom form created with Breezingforms and add the form to the article with {loadmodule} functionality https://crosstec.org/en/downloads/breez ... oomla.html

Hello,
Custom fields can be extended to add more features, so if you have some coding skills you can create your own custom field.
Joomla extensions, tutorials and blogs
https://www.joomreem.com

Custom development is available.

Thanks mabdelaziz. I will look for someone with this skills...

...maybe the List Field can be duplicated and extended with this: https://magazine.joomla.org/issues/issu ... -tag-field in order to add it the option of "add new values" and create a Custom Field called Tags Field...

...or maybe this is not possible... but as this the "New to Joomla! 3.x" sub-forum , and I am not developer... just let me dream... :p
