Sounds like the field's settings have gotten mixed up at some point. I'd try switching the field to "XHTML" formatting, and select the option to "Update all existing channel entries with your new formatting choice?". Once that's done, then switch back to "None" formatting and update all existing again. Hopefully that will resolve for you.

Since Field Instructions will allow HTML and JS, you can add the following in the Field Instructions for that custom field: <script type="text/javascript"> $(document).ready(function() { if ($('#field_id_23').is(':empty')) { $('#field_id_23').val('This is the default text'); } }); </script> Just be sure to ...

There are a few possible solutions available here: 1. Global variable approach Amend your plugin so that it sets a global variable instead of/as well as returning the value directly. This ensures that it is parsed very early so you can use it as {cid} in tag parameters. You can set a global EE variable like this in your plugin: $this->EE->config->...

Use the session cache: if (ee()->session->cache(__CLASS__, __FUNCTION__) === FALSE) { ee()->cp->add_to_head('/path/to/foo.css'); ee()->session->set_cache(__CLASS__, __FUNCTION__, TRUE); } Your code will only run once per page load.

For times where the Channel module is overkill, or the random bits of editable content don't really fit the Channel mould, Low Variables is really great. It has a lot of added features beyond just making global variables easily (and safely) editable by end users. Some of the big benefits are text formatting options, custom content types for the global ...

You are hitting the limits of InnoDB. It might work to change your table to the MyISAM engine (backup before changing this), as the limits of MyISAM are larger compared to InnoDB. Note that this can cause an performance hit as table locking acts different on MyISAM. You can also replace all VARCHAR fields (with more than 10 characters) with a TEXT field. ...

This was driving me insane but I've figured it out. You need to edit the $entry object (1st parameter of the function) in order for this to work. You can, however, use the 2nd parameter, $values, for easy reading of the data. public function before_channel_entry_save( $entry, $values ) { // Set value for specific field name $entry->setProperty( '...

Yep, very simple. Just do this: {if custom_field} ... field has any value ... {/if} If you want to test if the field has a certain value, you can do: {if custom_field == "foobar"} show contents {/if}

What happens if I get rid of a field? Will that contents still be in the data base? No, if you delete a field from a field group the data is gone. Can I keep the code to display that field in place in my template and use a conditional to render it only if it exists (even though it is no longer a valid "input" field)? It shouldn't cause any issues ...

Since by default the datepicker does not include seconds, EE saves the current time's seconds (minus 1 second) to the entry date (and in fact any custom date field). So the last part of the timestamp for each of these fields is based on when the entry was created. (Looking under the hood, it appears there have been two approaches over the years to this - at ...

You should not lose any data which already exists in your fields when changing field types - but if you have anything but a UNIX timestamp stored in the existing text field, the Date fieldtype won't know what to do with the data. UPDATE: To update your existing fields from your current format (5/14/2013) to a timestamp for use with the Date fieldtype, put ...

There are a couple of bugs with publish layouts that have popped up in 2.7.1. Here's a link to one that sounds like it might be related and contains a fix file to download and apply: https://support.ellislab.com/bugs/detail/19738 Let us know if that fix works for your issue as well.

Any time i've used it P&T fields so far i've gone with this syntax: {field:preferred_position} I haven't specifically used checkboxes, but I think its worth a shot.

CKEditor (which is the editor used by Wygwam) has a feature called Templates that you can use for this. With CKEditor content writers can select a template from a list by clicking the Templates button in the toolbar. A template is a predefined piece of HTML that is inserted into a document. Using this feature, the user does not need to start ...

you can open file expressionengine/modules/channel/mod.channel.php and check function entries() you can use Channel-Data lib from Justin Kimbrell to simplify access to channel data. example $entries = $this->EE->channel_data->get_channel_entries($channel_id, array( 'select' => array('*'), 'where' => array('...

If you need to do this from the template you could use a plugin like this one: http://devot-ee.com/add-ons/create-url-title If you need to do it directly to the DB please update us so we can give you that solution as well. Note: CE String also has a custom method called url_title which will do the same thing but, it's not a free add-on.

Each field type stores it's data differently, some custom add-ons will create one or more extra tables to store fieldtype data for entries. For instance, Matrix will create a table: exp_matrix_cols and exp_matrix_data to store column settings and data that will populate those columns. Relationships (I'm assuming you're talking about stock EE) are in the ...

Have you looked at Content Elements? http://dvt.ee/ad0g9RJ

You'll need to use the Allow EE Code plugin, and wrap your field with it on the front-end: {exp:allow_eecode query="y"} {my_field} {/exp:allow_eecode}

I think this may be somewhat more simple. Can you go to your Wygwam editor configuration, under Advanced Settings, in the drop-down, choose Skin and follow those instructions. Let's see if that helps? If that doesn't work, please check your dev console for any JS errors and report them here. Thank you! Edit to add: this is quite an old post, but you ...

You can do it by using the {custom_fields} loop of SafeCraker. In case, you wouldn't like to show some specific custom fields, don't populate them using if condition. Like: {custom_fields} {if field_name != "not_show_field_1" AND field_name != "not_show_field_2"} [Custom field options] {/if} {/custom_fields} Take a reference from http://ellislab.com/...

The problem in your code stems from the placement of your conditional. Because you haven't started with a channel:entries call EE has no idea what choose_entries is. But you cant put a channel:entries call within another (nested) so you would need to do something like this. {exp:channel:entries (any relevant parameters to pull the correct entry)} {if ...

I would suggest you to use "Time Select" field type (http://devot-ee.com/add-ons/time-select) as it stores the time value as integer to orderby would work correctly with parameter orderby="start_date".

If you look within the table structure for the relationship, the relationship data is stored within database table exp_relationships so only we need to update this table for the field_id. The parent_id and child_id are already in same format required for multi-relationship. You need to follow these steps: 1) Make the "book_author" as multi-relations by ...

The first thing I would ask is do you really need a fieldgroup for each product channel? Multiple channels can share the same fieldgroup and you can use publish layouts to hide the fields that are not relevant to a particular product. Using the same fieldgroup will also force you to generalise the fields you use which can be a good thing for rationalising ...

Couple of suggestions: have you looked into using Textile or Markdown for your textarea? use a div.summary instead of a p CE String has methods to strip out tags from html, check remove_tags or remove_tags_except (I use this a lot personally - lots of other useful methods too in this plugin) Wygwam has a text-only mode that can be useful.


3

Not natively but you could throw a little JS into the field instructions as per this question. <script> $(function(){ if (document.location.href.indexOf("entry_id") == -1) { // if it's a new entry var field = $("#field_id_15"); if (field.val() == "") { field.val("Sydney"); } } }); </script> Obviously just replace that ...

Go to this field via Admin > Channel Administration > Channel Fields > Group > Field and switch the formatting back to XHTML confirm and then back again to none. When switching EE should show a checkbox before confirming asking if you want existing fields to be reformatted. Check this. Alternatively keep as XHTML in EE and use a plugin to alter the rendered ...

As folks mention above, no custom development is needed here. Just use the native Grid fieldtype with two columns - one using the File fieldtype (called, say, file), and the other using the Text fieldtype (called, say, url). Then, in your template: {my_grid_field} {if my_grid_field:file}<a href="{my_grid_field:file}">Download this file</a>{/...

This is what the var_prefix="" parameter is for. Update your code like this. {exp:channel:entries set="prod" dynamic="no" disable="pagination"} ... {exp:playa:parents channel="api" field="cf_apis_related_product" var_prefix="api"} <ul class="dropdown"> <li><a href="{path='{PROD_CHANNEL_url_title}/docs/{api:url_title}'}">{...
