Directory owners often request that their listing fields be customizable. That is, they want some types of listings to have a certain field in their listing, where others do not. For example, a Restaurant might only have the field “Cuisine type” where a Hotel might have the field “Amenities.”
In version 5.3 of the BD, we have introduced category-specific fields to make this possible. Here are the steps to set a form field to be displayed only in certain categories:
– Go to Manage Form Fields and click on “Edit” in the desired field. (Note: You can also follow these steps when adding a new form field).
– Navigate to Field Display Options -> Field Category Policy option and select “Field applies to certain categories only” in the dropdown list.
– A list of categories becomes visible. Select which categories the field will be displayed in.
– Click on “Update Field” button to save changes. Now the field will be rendered for specific categories in submit, main and listing views.
