Add-On Type(s)

Extension, Module


When you need end-user friendly global variables for your sites, Collective makes it easy with a simple and intuitive interface!

Buy on

Collective is a simple system to store early parsed global variables in five different field types: Text Input, Textarea, WYSIWYG, Checkbox, and Simple Grid. You can even use character limiting on the Text Input and Textarea simple field types to keep your clients from doing something they are not supposed to. The WYSIWYG field comes in handy for those tricky global spots that need a little bit of text formatting but just isn’t the type of content you can put in a channel entry, and the Checkbox field will let you give your users control over various aspects you have designed into the site. And the Simple Grid can be a powerful tool for repeating text fields.

Easy Group Management

Collective gives you easy group management with drag and drop ordering to organize your variables into groupings that will make sense to the content editor or end user as well as give access to critical variables only to certain ExpressionEngine user groups. This allows you to divy up the correct permissions among admins, site editors, content managers and more.

Hooks Used

If the add-on is an extension, and ties into ExpressionEngine's core files, it will use ExpressionEngine hooks. We are listing any hooks the add-on uses for developers to have an easier time locating other add-ons that they can reference for their own work.
