Repeater Fields


Repeater fields are a set of subfields (text, images, etc...) that can be easily repeated as much as needed when editing your content.


1. Create your Repeater field

Before using the repeater fields in your contents you will have to define a structure based on at least field type. A structure is like a model that you will be able to repeat in your content as you wish.

To create a repeater field structure:

> Open the “CONTENT” menu in the admin
> Click ‘Repeater Fields’

On this page you can view/edit/delete your already existing Repeater Field structures or add new ones:

Repeater fields Menu

> Click ‘Add new repeater Field’ to add a new Repeater Field structure

Repeater Fields Information
In this first tab you have to put the basic information that will be used to identify your repeater field structure.
> Title: Name of your repeater field. For admin purpose.
> Identifier: Unique ID to identify your repeater field.
> Default status: status of the repeater field structure : enable or disable.
> Description : for admin purposes.

Manage Fields

This is the part where you will be able to add some custom fields within your structure of repeater field. For example if you add an image and a text area you will be able to repeat this exact structure (a field image and a field text area) in your contents as much as you want.
The principle is the same as when you manage the field of a content type.

In this example we added two input types : “my_image” of type “image” and “my_area” of type “area”. Later, we will be able to repeat these fields over and over in differents content types.
You can click  on save and you own now a Repeater Field structure.

2. Add the repeater to a Content Type

Now that we have our Repeater Field structure ready, we have to add it into a Content Type. A Repeater Field structure works like any other custom fields. Once you have your Content Type created, you can manage its fields and you can also add a repeater field structure.

To add a repeater field you have to click on “Add New Field” and select for “Input Type” => “Repeater Fields”. Then select for “Repeater Fields Type” the Repeater Field structure you have created previously.

3. Create your Content

After creating your content type and adding a repeater field into it, you can create a content and finally use this repeater field.
If you are new to ACM2 you should check how to add a content first.

Now that you have your content you can see that you you have a button “Add field” that will allow you to repeat the structure that you have previously made (ie : an image and a text area).
