Post by: Chip on November 19, 2019, 03:15:51 AM


Allows to add different groups of custom fields to forum posts and filters for fields of posts.

A group of fields can be of type:

Fields loose: Its fields are added to a post to provide extra information. In seeking data into fields loose of a post is gets a list of posts.

Record: It is a set of fields that represents an independent entity of the post. In seeking data into fields of a record is gets a list of records. The post body can not be left empty but a post with record does not need body. If the user will add a record and the post body is empty, the system writes a period (".") on it and the user does not need to write anything
Fields with several values per member: It is set of fields where several members can insert different values. This can be used for members to make comments or valuations about the post. If these fields are located in just the first post of a topic can be displayed as belonging to the topic.

Filters: This is a special type of group without fields. Used to enable a set of predefined filters that can be used on topics and posts.

The available predefined filters are:
Start of the subject.
First character of the subject.
Date of topic / Date posted.
Date of last reply / Date posted.
Posted by.
Topic with new posts / New.

The actions to be performed on a group of custom fields are: view, add, modify, delete and move.
