Text Field


The Text Field allows single line text data entry.

Field Creation

Special options within this field are:

  • Filter Allow the system to save certain html tags or raw data. Use the raw filter to ensure that html code is preserved when the form is processed.
  • Maximum Length The maximum number of characters that can be entered.
  • Prefix This appears before the text in the Article output. Example: £.
  • Suffix This appears after the text in the Article output, Example: EUR.

Data Entry

Simple: Type in your text.

Data Display

The following Site screenshot shows the field displayed in an article. The option Automatic display is responsible for the position of the field and your template is responsible for the design of the field.

Look for the Price item.

Display of all fields

The field Text follows the field Label. And notice that the £ symbol was set as a Prefix.
