[Enhanced] Custom Fields


Staff member
There are a couple enhancements to custom fields in SC 2.0.0

Display Location: Own Tab

This allows you to add additional tabs (over and above the 5 content tabs). A Tab can only hold 1 Field Type (best used for Rich text box Field Type).

Field Type: Rich text box

This field type uses the redactor editor for data input.

Category Management

Available Fields are now listed in the Category Edit (and create) for quickly adding (or remove) custom fields for that particular category.

Custom Fields Exposed outside of item view

Custom Field data for each item is now exposed where ever items are "prepared" (which is pretty much everywhere, lists, blocks, widgets etc). They are exposed as $item.customFields <--- an array, so to access a specific element, it would be $item.customFields[fieldId] where as fieldID is the unique ID of that field when you created it.

  ["customFields"] => array(6) {
    ["_owntab1"] => string(14) "test test test"
    ["_owntab2"] => string(0) "some test text"
    ["_owntab3"] => string(0) "weeeeeeeee"
    ["_owntab4"] => string(0) "nom nom nom"
    ["selfplace1"] => string(6) "Pizza!"
    ["tab1_field2"] => array(2) {
      ["COLOR_1"] => string(7) "COLOR_1"
      ["COLOR_2"] => string(7) "COLOR_2"

Phrases are cached and now use Helpers, so to properly display COLOR_1

The first one is for the TITLE and the 2nd one is for the VALUE

{xen:helper showcaseFieldTitle, $fieldId}

{xen:helper showcaseFieldValue, $item, $fieldId, {$item.customFields.{$fieldId}}}

You can now easily add/remove existing custom fields to a category without having to edit each custom field itself to add/remove from the category list.

The Custom Field Options Tab will list ALL showcase custom fields that are in the system. They are broke out by Location (sidebar, Tab 1, Self Placement etc) and include some basic info like the TYPE of field it is and the field_id (as well as if the field is required).
