Fields, Fieldtypes and Inputfields

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

    The Options Fieldtype provides single and multi choice selectable options in ProcessWire, as an alternative to using Page fields.
  • Images

    This page outlines using and manipulating image fields — one of the most commonly used in ProcessWire.
  • Multi-language fields

    ProcessWire supports various kinds of multi-language text fields. This page outlines how to use them.
  • CKEditor

    CKEditor is the rich text editor used by ProcessWire via the module InputfieldCKEditor. On a default installation of ProcessWire, there is typically a “body” field which uses CKEditor.

“To Drupal, or to ProcessWire? The million dollar choice. We decided to make an early switch to PW. And in retrospect, ProcessWire was probably the best decision we made. Thanks are due to ProcessWire and the amazing system and set of modules that are in place.” —Unni Krishnan, Founder of PigtailPundits
