ProFields: Table field type

This Fieldtype is the first of its kind in that it lets you literally define your own Fieldtype. Think of it kind of like a lean and mean repeater field, with no extra overhead.

You define the fields (and types) that you want use for one or more columns in a table. Behind the scenes, this Fieldtype creates a custom database table for storage. Each column in the database table translates to an HTML table column of inputs present in your page editor. This is ideal for things like rate tables, multi-column lists, inventories and more.

Supported inputs include text, dates, times, selects, checkboxes, radios, emails, URLs and more. Because these inputs translate directly to database columns, they are distinct other Inputfields you may see in ProcessWire. In the admin page editor, the table of inputs is sortable and an unlimited number of rows may be added.

Table is part of the ProcessWire ProFields package available from the ProcessWire Store.

Example

Lets say that we're building a website for an architecture firm. Each of the projects in their portfolio needs a section that outlines what awards that project received. We want to maintain the following pieces of information for each award:

  • Award title
  • Award date
  • Category: Architecture, Interior Design, or Engineering
  • Award URL for more info (if available)

The Table Fieldtype/Inputfield enables us to create and manage this easily, all from just one field, with no need to create new templates or pages.

Full documentation and more examples are available in the ProFields support board.

“We chose ProcessWire because of its excellent architecture, modular extensibility and the internal API. The CMS offers the necessary flexibility and performance for such a complex website like superbude.de. ProcessWire offers options that are only available for larger systems, such as Drupal, and allows a much slimmer development process.” —xport communication GmbH
