    I can do this by hand for the time being. There is an issue about “orphaning” data… long story, but I think thing is to come back to this.

    • Milestone set to 1.3
    • State changed from “new” to “resolved”

    We have added this ability for fields that DON'T already have data in use within a given topic type or content type.

    This is to avoid the potential for orphaned data in extended content. The functionality should handle the most common case where a site administrator adds a field and then thinks better of it before it is in common use or it was added by mistake.

    If you want to delete a field that does have data associated with it, you must still have a tech person with direct access to the database to seek out that data and delete it.

    Also note that #203 has been implemented and now you can switch an mapping of a field to a topic type or content type from optional to required or vice versa.
