Hello - Was just looking to add custom fields to my site and realised that it won't allow to create multiple select fields.

For example, my site is for cycle touring events. One of the custom fields I'm looking at is to show the accommodation that will be used. So we can pick between hotel, camping, hostel, etc.. people quite often use more than one, so I would like to have a multiple select custom field.

Hope that makes sense. I'm also hoping that I have been blind as usual and you will reply and tell me the function already exists! If not there, can it please be added. For now, I just keep adding the detail to the event description manually. In the future I would like people to be able to search custom fields like this. that would be good .

cheers Pete

Hey Pete,
You've correctly identified this. Our customfields currently don't support mulitple select. I'll try to add this option in the near future. We have a lot of custom fields stuff to add :)

Regards,
Daniel

Hi Daniel / Yves,

Is multiple select on custom fields going to be possible? Could really do with this one to make them work for me.

thanks Pete

wow, is it really been a year already. Time flies.

We should add this, together with some other custom fields.

Tell me about it - be Christmas soon!

Yep, if you could add this and other custom fields that would be great.

If you could also have an option to place custom fields into their own box that blends with event page, then that would be great too. https://compojoom.com/forum/107-wishlist/21354-custom-fields-box

Hi Peter,

we are currently investigating moving to custom fields of Joomla 3.7.. That would offer a lot more fields types and flexibility. But there are also downsides like search / filtering and migration path.

Best,
Yves

Hello Yves & Compojoom,

could you already investigate it?

Hey,

as they are doing one query per item (e.g. event / comment etc.) i am not sure if we want to go that way :-)

The increased number of fields would be great, but not sure if that is a good idea for sacrificing performance (and flexibility on positions)

Best,
Yves
