After 5 Episodes in the Joomla Community Magazine about Custom Fields in Joomla core, obviously you know how powerful they are. But as a human being, you always dream of more...
After a series of 4 episodes published in the previous editions of the Joomla Community Magazine, hopefuly you already know a lot about Custom Fields.
But learning is a continuous process and it is always nice to learn from each other. This is exactly what I like about the Joomla Community: the fact that many people share their knowledge and enthousiasm.
In our Explore the Core series, experienced Joomla users help you find your way through Joomla's powerful core features. In this month's issue, Marc Dechèvre shows us what you can do with Joomla's built-in custom fields (spoiler alert: a lot). Dive in and explore!
In this 3rd episode about Custom Fields: (1) we will first cover in detail all the possible parameters (2) then we will give an overview of some new exciting features which will ship with Joomla 3.9 (3) and finally, we will end up with an example of site making an interesting use of Custom Fields
Do you have a project idea where Custom Fields would be useful ? Excellent, in this second article (Episode) in a series on Joomla Custom Fields, we show you how to manage and display your own Custom Fields.
As you may know, Custom Fields were introduced in 2017 with the release of Joomla 3.7.
Many of us are aware of their existence, but not everybody has already realised how powerful these are or had the opportunity to exploit them. The idea of this article is to present a few recent projects which have used Custom Fields. Hopefully this will stimulate many of us to give it a try and to start to play with them.
And I think it is really worth it : Custom Fields bring Joomla to another level.
