By default, Joomla provides few types of fields that could be used as repeatable custom fields:

  • editor
  • media
  • number
  • text
  • textarea

I want to have more fields like boolean, or maybe even more rich like "select article".

I know that there is the possibility of overriding the files, but I am a bit scared of losing them after update.

For example, I managed to add checkbox fields by adding new string to file located at:

<option value="checkbox">checkbox</option>

How can I achieve this in an update-safe way?

  • Make copy of the full plugin, rename it and add your own fields and layouts. Jul 13, 2021 at 17:33
