Custom field question

    Just to know if this scenario it's possible:

    1) We have a custom field that accept a number (year). Can be a dropdown (begin 1970, ends 2016).

    2) Output will be print according to the year:
    if 1970, output is "70's period"
    if 1979, output is "70's period"
    if 1986, output is "80's period"
    if 2010, output is "10's period"
    It's possible without custom work?

    You could use the Value Display HTML for that field (General Options tab of the field) to get CLOSE to that.


    "{$choice}'s period"
    That would (should) produce "1970's period"

    Thanks @Bob but is't the solution I'm trying to find. Works well with 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000 and 2010 but not to all the years between: 1971, 72, 73....

    Why all those options when setting 1970, 71, 72, 73, 74 etc are all going to display "70's period". Why not just create periods and have them set the period instead of a year. What is the purpose of 1971 of the OUTPUT is going to be "70's period"?

    Because I like to alias a name to some generations/period: "golden era" insted of 70's perĂ­odo, "neoclassics" insted of 90's period, etc. And them make a filter by that alias name.
