Hi Sebloders

Any body experienced extra fields in their admin form?


EDIT: I have discovered that the addition of PayPlans causes this odd behaviour (not saying anything bad about payplans)...


I created a Content Type based upon the "usergroup" object.
In the "Admin View" I have ZERO fields assigned.
I have ZERO position variations in place or overrides.
If I create content in the back end, I see the fields:
{"Title", "Alias", "Parent", "Status", "Access"}
I assume it is showing the Standard Joomla view.
This applies if I add fields, too.
Is this a world first?
Any tips or suggestions on where to look?

Hi Bucklash,

thank you for your involvement in the forum and the support provided to the community.

Here I'm not sure to follow you.

Basically in fresh SEBLOD installation, there are 5 fields related to the User Group Content type :

  • User Group Id
  • User Group Parent Id
  • User Group Tags
  • User Group Title
  • User Group Title (Back-end)

So if you have more than that, it's because you have certainly added them.

You can add any custom field you want in administration / Site form of the User Group content type. Just respect the storage to "User Group" object.

And more, if you need a content view, you can activate the bridge in the plugin CCK Storage Location - Joomla! User Group, like for Users.

Hi Lionel

EDIT 1: I have found that a category form is being loaded, these are the extra fields... this category is ALSO being loaded when adding new users in admin area...trying to find out why
EDIT 2: I have also found that in extensions/manage/manage I can only view unpublished items, any filtering doesn't work... damn it, something in my Joomla site is amiss. It's not to do with Seblod.... digging deeper

I answer questions to help me learn, purely selfish reasons :) and because Seblod is ... amazing!!

In answering another post I noticed that I couldn't see the list of content based upon usergroup object when placed in a module. However, in another test site I can. I can not see any difference between any configuration or db setting, so as an example, if I remove ALL fields from the content type, I still see the fields mentioned in the post above.

I know I have changed/altered something, but can't work out what.

I stared at the db tables and compared them with my other test site for hours but no joy...
