Custom fields

Article Details

Profiles Joomla 3.7+
The package Article Details Profiles supports most of the Custom Field types (the relevant ones) introduced in Joomla! 3.7.

The supported types are:

  • calendar
  • checkbox
  • integer
  • list
  • radio
  • text
  • textarea
  • url (http, https and mailto)
  • editor

Once the fields are created in the content component, they are made available in the information blocs:

Custom fields information type

When selected, the field's value will show for the article, if the article has a value for the field.

New v5.3

Adding third-party custom fields

Select the custom fields you need Article Details Profiles to be compatible with in the global configurations of the extension (Shared options tab).

From that point on, those third-party custom fields are also visible among the standard ones.

You still need to create a layout for those fields, determining how the values will look like. To do so, copy any of the already available layouts as a starting point. Add the layout to the template overrides (see the layout overrides section) and follow the naming convention.

For instance, a third-party custom field Authors will need a layout called adp_detail_jfield_authors.php
