Hello all,

I add custom fields, but on the front end they don't show up.  This is probably something simple that I am doing wrong.  Can anyone help me to understand why?  When I go into the backend the custom fields option is turned off again.

Many thanks,
Eoin

Hi Eoin

Some screen shots or more info would be helpful.

What do you mean by "custom fields option is turned off again"?


Thanks

Here I set the I custom data.  I use "data-heat".  The others are things like quite spicey, very spicy, not spicey.  I followed this video https://www.seblod.com/resources/videos/playing-with-custom-attributes.  I'm not sure if I am doing something wrong, when I open up the field again the custom attributes box is unticked.

When I look on the front end with Firebug I can't see "data-heat" in my code.

Hi Eoin

First off, if I save and close the Form & Content Type, then open it again, the custom attributes checkbox is unchecked, but the data is still there ie I can see the data again when I check the checkbox.

In the 1st of the 6 boxes within the Custom Attributes section I put: data-options.

In the first of the 6 boxes within each option of my select list, I put My Option 1, My Option 2, My Option 3 for the 1, 2, and 3rd option.

And the front end worked:

My select list is:

<select id="select_me" name="select_me" class="inputbox select">
	<option value="" data-options="" selected="selected">- Select an Option -</option>
	<option value="opt1" data-options="My Option 1">Option 1</option>
	<option value="opt2" data-options="My Option 2">Option 2</option>
	<option value="opt3" data-options="My Option 3">Option 3</option>
</select>

So maybe it is a cache thing, have you tried it on a fresh install, do you get the same result?

For each item, with a radio button, only one option can be checked.

On the item content, should the custom attribute appear?
