Add-On Type(s)



Countree is a fieldtype that helps ease the pain when dealing with countries in ExpressionEngine 2 by providing numerous display options and tags.



  1. Copy the “/system/expressionengine/third_party/countree” into your third_party addons folder.
  2. Copy the “/themes/third_party/countree” into your third_party themes folder.
  3. Navigate to the Add-Ons => Fieldtypes page in the Control Panel and click the “Install” link.
  1. Once you’ve installed the fieldtype, you can click the “Countree” link on the Fieldtypes page to create and manage “country groups”.
  2. When you add the fieldtype in your channel, you can then “quick choose” any pre-selected group.
  3. You can choose groups or individual countries to show or exclude in your country selection dropdown. Note: If you choose any to “include” then the exclude settings won’t be observed.

People complaining about “no download link” are probably not aware that this is a paid plug-in. You can download it right after you complete the payment. The plugin works like a charm! Well worth the $ 8 and would definitely recommend it.
