The Collections Fieldtype in action!

Usage

This fieldtype is used to view and select from a list of Collections.

fields:
my_collections_field:
type: collections

Data Structure

The Collections fieldtype is a Relationship fieldtype, and will save the collections as their handles (the folder name).

listings:
- blog
- things

Templating

You're more than likely using this field as a way to dynamically display a collection.

Since the collection tag accepts a pipe-delimited list of collection names, you can join them together likeĀ this:

<ul>
{{ collection from="{listings|piped}" }}
<li>{{ title }}</li>
{{ /collection }}
</ul>
<ul>
<li>A blog entry</li>
<li>A thing entry</li>
<li>etc</li>
</ul>

Options

max_items

integer

The maximum number of items that may be selected. Setting this to 1 will change the UI to a dropdown.
