SD Field Concat – A SEBLOD Field Plugin

Features of SD Field Concat include:

Joomla 2.5.x and SEBLOD 2.2 Compatibility – Now only supporting SEBLOD 2.2 >

Now support for values or labels of multiple checkbox, multiple radio and multiple select fields

Getting the NEXT AUTO INCREMENT value of ANY table in your database. This will solve many of your problems when constructing unique titles, as you can now get the new articles ID before it is saved.

Choosing to have no value separator – ideal for constructing plugin syntax.

Choosing to have either the value OR text when using checkboxes, selects, radios etc.

Using native JText functionality to translate text on the fly based on user language.

The SD Concat Field can now be rendered as a normal field inside intro and content views. This is great for making plugin syntax based on other form fields.

A common usage pattern emerging in the SEBLOD community is to build a meta field based on the values of ‘x’ amount of fields in the content type, and then to search against this field. This provides a simple ‘global search’ facility to SEBLOD content types.
