Add-On Type(s)



Develop fieldtype add-ons in EE1 with as little effort as a plugin.

Easy as a Plugin

Developing a fieldtype extension in EE1 used to be a painful undertaking. Thankfully those days are in the past now, because FieldFrame does all the heavy lifting for you. It provides a rich API that makes developing fieldtypes as easy as plugins.

Five Bundled Fieldtypes

FieldFrame comes bundled with five simple fieldtypes to get you started:

FieldFrame Links

Hooks Used

Not only does it allow for a standardization of field types, but it makes creating stand alone entry forms a snap.

Let it rock your world. Just install it already and feel good about doing the right thing.

There are very few extensions that I can’t (or don’t want to) imagine living without. This is one such rarity.

So good I no longer lie awake at night weeping silent tears of terror when faced with the prospect of building a custom EE field type.

This blows everything away. It’s more than the sum of its parts. Just install this and let the custom field types come to you like sweet sumer rain.

Unbelievable. Fantastic. Gnarly. Gamechanger.
