Restore fields form database


Recommended Posts


I have managed to delete my templates in my database. I am quite unhappy with myself.


Now I have to rebuild them and I stil have the fields with content.

Can I somehow restore them on my site? And how do I link them to right field in the database?

The fields in the database have pages_ID....how can I Connect them?


Thanks for any help

Did you just delete the template table and nothing else? This should be relatively easy to rebuild manually because it links to the fieldgroups and fieldgroups_fields tables which actually contain the details of the fields that belong to a template. The main thing you will have to do is to recreate template permissions etc once you have the basics set up.

If you look through the columns of a templates table from another install you should be able to figure things out. If you have a lot of templates it might be easier to write a script that queries the fieldgroups table and rebuilds the templates table from that because there is actually some duplication of content between the two.
