Custom field in module?

Post by robe001 » Sat May 18, 2019 10:24 am

How can I put a custom field in a module? Is there some extension (preferably free :) ) or some easy way to do it myself?

I don't believe you can put custom fields in modules as such.

What exactly are you trying to do - please provide details.

I don't know if anything here will assist you: https://extensions.joomla.org/tags/custom-fields/

Thank you for answering :)

With the standard custom fields you can only choose to have the field before or after the article. I would like to have a text field in a module to the right of articles, it would contain information related to the article.
