Joomla has custom fields, but I want something more.

If I add a field, lets say: colors to a category.

Is it possible somehow that a user can open an article, and add his own options? In this case colors.

So for example: a user opens an article, sees a field named colors and he adds a list himself of available colors, red, green, blue you name it.

You may create your own custom fields to use throughout Joomla. Try checking out this documentation first to see if standard Joomla functionality meets your needs. If not, you will have to write your own component/module/plugin or use an extension. https://docs.joomla.org/J3.x:Adding_custom_fields
