Allow content editor to add select options

Recommended Posts

Hi folks.
I have a taxonomy of photographers to use in photo credits - the content editor simply picks the correct one from a SELECT element after she's uploaded a photo.
I'd like to allow the editor to add a new name to this list when she's uploading the photo, without having to switch gears and visit the options list on the field page.
Is there a module to enable something like this? or any clever ideas?
TIA...

There is an option in field settings input tab:

This option isn't present for a Select (Options) element.
I'm going to rethink the setup - probably make each Photographer a page, and then use a page reference in the Uploaded Photo template.

Yes, that's the prefered way for those use cases.

@Smoo that's what I do on my site. When I create a tutorial post, I can tag it with either existing options, or create a new one:

create_new.jpg

Each one of those is page:

create_new_tags_pages.jpg

This way has the additional bonus of allowing me to show all posts by tag at URLs such as '/tags/ckeditor/'. Works really well :)
