Additional documentation and details on using various different kinds of field types and input fields in ProcessWire.

  • Introduction to fields

    Fields are where the content is actually stored for pages. This page provides more information about Fields, Fieldtypes and Inputfields.
  • Field dependencies

    Input and field dependencies enable you to specify the conditions under which a particular field in the page editor is shown or required.
  • Repeaters

    The repeater fieldtype enables you to create a group of fields and make it repeatable in any quantity on your page. This opens many new possibilities with how you might manage and structure data.
  • Textarea

    The Textarea Fieldtype is designed to hold any amount of text. Typically Textarea is used for multi-line text values. It is also used for rich text (CKEditor) fields.
  • Select options

“We were really happy to build our new portfolio website on ProcessWire! We wanted something that gave us plenty of control on the back-end, without any bloat on the front end - just a nice, easy to access API for all our content that left us free to design and build however we liked.” —Castus, web design agency in Sheffield, UK
