Allow site administrators to switch a field mapped to a content type or topic type from optional/required

Reported by Honiana Love | May 28th, 2009 @ 05:53 PM | in 1.3 (closed)

Is there any way to remove or change the settings for a field once it is in the Current Form Fields without deleting the entire content type setting? I would like to reset the manditory and optional settings on some fields.

    Hi Honiana,

    There is a fairly simple wait to do it for programmers. If you send me a list of the changes you would like made I can take care of it.

    That said, this is a long standing request. There are some technical hurdles mainly related to existing data that have made me put this aside repeatedly.

    Perhaps in 1.3 we'll get to it.

    • Title changed from “Deleting fields in content types” to “Allow site administrators to switch a field mapped to a content type or topic type from optional/required”
    • Milestone set to 1.3
    • State changed from “new” to “open”
    • Assigned user changed from “Kete” to “Kieran P”

    For now lets limit the scope of this to changing whether a field is optional or required. This is pretty straightforward to implement.

    Essentially it will tie-in to the existing for reordering the field order.

    This work has been completed. You can delete a field if it doesn't have any data associated with it (see ticket #9). You can also switch fields from optional to required and back now. Resolving ticket.
