webhelpus created the topic: Subform + Article Fields
Can you use Regular Labs Articles Field" with Subforms? I do a podcast of Old Time Radio shows and list the characters with the actors' names. Right now it's a repeatable field with two text fields. In the Actors name field, I use Regular Labs' snippets to create a link to the page. Unfortunately, Joomla's repeatable fields (as we all know) is limited to what fields I can use.
How easy would it be to have 2 fields, one Character name and the other Actor Name (this field would link to the Article about the actor) in the format:
Here's the catch: If you use it in a repeatable subform, you must save the article before the article selection buttons work. Not a show stopper, just don't publish until you've saved it and fixed your article links.
Now, mind you - you'll need to create an output template for this subform because the article selection ONLY stores the article ID. You can use JRoute::_('/index.php?option=com_content&catid=XX&id=YY') to get a SEF link to the article within your subform output template.
