Hi,


I have created a field (as a simple select) for adding the country to an article item. I have further added the country abbreviation as the storage rather than the full country name (e.g. Austria=AT). 


Now, to my problem, I want to display the full country name in the simple select, but in the list, i just want to display the country code. Is there some easy way to do this?


Help save my day!

Hello Filip,

when you want to display the value instead  the text ou have 2 solutions:

  • create a Text Alias of the select field (a text field with the same storage). It will only display what is it stored.
  • Add a typo HTML on the field with this code " $cck->getValue('name_of_your_field'); "


Regards.

Lionel
