I have a Channel Entry field that contains a table. I need the caption to contain the title. I tried:


Thinking it would work, given that it's within the scope of the Entry, but that didn't work.

What would I need to write?

  • You'll need to provide some more details. Is {title} within a channel entries loop? May 13, 2013 at 15:11
  • Hi Jason, I don't mean within the a template. I mean within the Entry editor itself. May 13, 2013 at 15:20

You can use the Allow EE code plugin to... allow EE code within your fields.

You'd do something like this in your template:


If your custom field has {title} in it, it should be processed.

Of course, you need to be careful with this because they could potentially enter any EE code.
