I'm just wondering is it possible to have nested Fields inside of a Custom Field type.

So if I create a custom Field type. I wish for it to contain all of the following. So it will contain multiple fields inside of it.

  • Asset
  • Matrix
  • Entry

Is this something that can be achieved.

Appreciate any pointers.

  • carlsc, I don't think that is the same as what I'm asking. That is to add an assets field. I want to add multiple fields inside of one custom field type. So they'd all be nested within the one. I hope that makes sense. – andrew-caulfield Apr 12 '17 at 10:18
  • "custom field types hold several different form input fields. For example the field may be called video and contain a title field, caption field, video slug field and a thumbnail field." – sounds very similar to me – carlcs Apr 12 '17 at 11:00
  • Dude, that is from the question. There is also no accepted answer on that question. Pointless linking that question. – andrew-caulfield Apr 12 '17 at 14:02

    Heh, so you’re saying that it is pointless to make you aware of a question basically asking the same thing? – carlcs Apr 12 '17 at 14:15

I don't believe you need a new custom field type for this. What your describing has been accomplished quite well already by the Neo plugin...


Additionally, the Super Table plugin has similar capabilities...
