I'm confused about this. I want to add a field to the com_content core component that needs to show up under the "Title" field in the administrator backend when you edit an article and of course to be it accessible site-wise in the front end in the article object.
I found this official tutorial: Adding custom fields to core components using a plugin, where it talks about the front end editing?
In fact it says to override the
/components/com_contact/views/form/tmpl/edit.php when the editing part in the backend happens in
/administrator/components/com_content/views/article/tmpl/edit.php and I'm not sure if the backend even reads the
/components/com_contact/views/form/tmpl/edit.xml that is supposed to add the field in the database.
So is there a tutorial that could help me achieve that? I'm using joomla 3.9
Note: I don't want to use the custom field feature.
