I'm trying to create fontend channel form page with a Grid field that has 3 columns. I've tried different variations but don't seem to get it working correctly. I have the css linked in my header

<link href="{path='css/_ee_channel_form_css'}" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" media="screen">

The docs say to use


or if you are using {custom_fields} it says to use {if grid} {display_field} {/if}

But then it says "Manual construction of grid type fields is not supported. Most customization of grid fields can be done by overriding the CSS."

  • I think I narrowed it down to the fact that EE doesn't like jquery-3.1.1, because if I load jquery-1.11.2 the grid seems to work and has a "add new row" and then my fields show up.

I added jQuery's migrate file so I could still use latest jQuery 3x and that seemed to solve the problem when using {field:my_field_name}. My Grid shows up now with functionality. Some styling issues but seems to be working at least.
