Fields are truly the heart of SobiPro. Each section within SobiPro provides its own fields manager where you create and edit the fields that will be included
with each entry or category. SobiPro comes with 12 core fields implemented and a bunch of installable fields available.
Fields are the reason why SobiPro is a CCK (content construction kit). By using the different fields, you can create (construct) your own entry or category form to let your users or administrators enter the data structured into specific fields.
Since SobiPro also supports fields for categories, there are two tabs in the fields manager to choose if a field should be added to the entry form or to the category form. The process of adding, editing or deleting fields is the same for entry fields and for category fields.
The fields manager shows a list of all fields you added to a specific section. Each section has its own set of fields. Fields can be shown for the entries of a section (Entry Fields) and for the categories of a section (Category Fields).
The position column lets you set the order of the fields as they are shown on the front-end of your site. You can set the position in two ways. Using the up () and down () signs to move them one position at a time, or enter numbers in the box to change the order of several fields at the same time. The second option requires you to click the reorder button () next to the word 'Position' at the top of the column for the positions to be saved and ordered properly.
The position column is visible only if the ordering of the fields is set to Position ascending or Position descending.
To add new fields to a section, just click the Add Field drop-down button on the toolbar on top. You will get a list of all field types available in your SobiPro installation. Select one, and you will be directed to the field's configuration page.
SobiPro comes with 12 core fields implemented and there are several additional fields available.
You can re-order the fields in the list according to different criteria. Just click on thedrop-down button above the fields list.
You can save the chosen ordering by clicking on the disc symbol () at the top right of the list. SobiPro is remembering your choice for the next time.
