I want to show some fields depending in the category selected for the entry but within the editing stage. is it possible?

If not, then how can i check if the entry is in a category in the template and output a field group.

thanks ahead!

Could you use the entry types to achieve the same thing? https://buildwithcraft.com/features/entry-types

  • Yes, but why are Categories for then?

  • Categories would be used to simply classify your content within the system. Unfortunately I don't know a way of having conditional logic in the CMS where you choose one value to display an appropriate field.
