Thanks, I will keep that in mind.
OK, I removed connections and hours then installed and activated connections-dev, then installed and activated hours-dev. I do see the hours thing in the Manage -> Edit entry also in the Add entry page, however it does not show in the form that the client would be using.
I don’t see how this helps? I don’t know where or what I do to modify this thing to do what I want it to do (add an extra field to the connections form and use it throughout connections)?
This is getting way to complex for a simply adding an extra form field. I think when I mentioned ‘hidden’ field you misunderstood me, I was describing possible options not that field had to be hidden. Sorry for the confusion if so.
I think what I will do instead is use the ‘notes’ field and change it to ‘keywords’ or ‘tags’ as a workaround. If I go this route, is there a way to make the field ‘text’ only (no formatting allowed)?
What I really want is to have a sub-region field ex:
Address Line 1: 123 fake street
Address Line 2:
City: Thunder Bay *
Province: ON *
Region: North West Ontario *
Postal Code: H0H 0H0
* I suggest being able to choose the field type to use in the form (text, selection, or combo-box) as text is too open ended for search ex: in province people may possibly use ON, Ontario or Ont. for a single province, this poses a problem for filtering and/or searching.
Using the short-codes I can then make it so if somebody goes to my site for example:
mysite.com/nwo that page would show only entries that have sub-region of North West Ontario.
Note: I noticed the categories drop-down in the form is no-longer a drop-down selection in the dev version of connections. Might I suggest you set it up like you did with the other boxes (keep the drop-down selection and have a ‘add category’ button) or a multi select drop-down.
