Hi

Quick one for Group X

OLD WAY

fields-plug-ins/learning-fields-groupx

Joomla SEBLOD GroupX kurz erklärt

NEW WAY

field-x-with-file-upload-not-allowing-docx-and-not-displaying-on-front-end

calendar-field-in-a-fieldx

Just confirming that the process for Group X AND Field X has actually been reversed ie

NEW WAY

  1. Create Form
  2. Create Repeating Form
  3. In Form, Create Group X Field, STORAGE: CUSTOM | ARTICLE (etc) | gx_field_name
  4. In Repeating Form, for each field, STORAGE: CUSTOM | ARTICLE (etc) | gx_field_name[this_field_name]

OLD WAY

  1. Create Form
  2. Create Repeating Form
  3. In Form, Create Group X Field, STORAGE: CUSTOM | ARTICLE (etc) | gx_field_name[repeating_form_name]
  4. In Repeating Form, for each field, STORAGE: STANDARD | ARTICLE (etc) | this_field_name <- or could just set NONE

Officially there has been no change, but what you call new way is what my experiments have shown as the only way to make it work for e.g. searches, search egneric field etc and other more complex things, you should consider this more as a workaround than as the right way...

Thanks, iI think it's important that official documentation is kept updated on such importance info like fields usage. Can you forward to whom can edit it?

In general, why not having a way for community users to post request for update/change of documentation? I think many of us would contribute and we all would spend less time in trying to figure out how seblod stuff should be used...

cheers

Hello,

There has been no change on this topic. Same as before:
- if you don't need to search within group_x, you can setup fields with storage = "None".
- if you need to search for them, you should set the storage accordingly.

Regards,
Saba.

Hi Folks

- if you need to search for them, you should set the storage accordingly.

Yep, I get it, thanks klas and saba for clarifying 

It makes sense the Klas way:

GX_field field storage as:

Custom | object | gx_field_name

field_in_repeating_form_name storage as:

Custom | object | gx_field_name[field_in_repeating_form_name]
