Fields considered critical

Bèr Kessels's picture

I am trying to weed out the many broken or duplicate flexinode fields.

The first differentation I want to make is between critical and non-critical fields. With a new release (4.7 and 5.0) the critical fields should all be released and working. Non-critical fields can be updated later.

I want to know what you consider critical fields, my personal list is included below.

  • textfield
  • textarea
  • datefield/timestamp
  • number
  • image
  • general file
  • selectlist
  • checkbox
  • url
  • email
  • multiselect

Please leave your list in a comment.


Thanks for developing flexinode!

You could help test the upgrade

See also on how to mail me a dump of your flexinode data, in case you don't know how to test an upgrade yourself.

Thanks for the time.

Critical fields for my site

In addition to those in your list, I actually use the "url" field a lot. I have nearly 1000 links to documentation that were created with flexinode. I am willing to help out if I can, my coding skills are not that strong. Unfortunately my data is confidential and cant be shared outside the building. Let me know if there is anything I can do. I have a live 4.7 site and also a 5.0 test site to play with. The 5.0 site database includes flexinode data.

Thanks for your work on this module!

url field added to the list

It is indeed a trivial and often used field. I will include it in flexinode 'core'.
