Additional fields for static collections

You can add additional fields on your static collections such as categories and tags. When you're setting up the content of your collection control, make sure the content is marked as Fixed. This lets you set Additional fields for your fixed collection.

 

CollectionControl01

 

You can give these fields the name you wish, they will be required fields for each of the collection items. The content of these fields is hidden on your published site. You can use this extra field for filtering results in the search control.

 

Say we have a collection with the information of three credit cards a Bank uses and we want to add the card's franchise. For this we created an additional field named Franchise.

 

CollectionControl02a

 

Now, when we edit the items the franchise appears as a required field.
