Editor's Pick
Each month the devot:ee staff picks an add-on that's especially well thought out, well built, and useful. They're add-ons that we love and think you will too!

Matrix was chosen in March 2013.

There are times when it doesn’t make sense to confine your content to a limited number of static fields. Let your content break free with Matrix.

Endless Possibilities

Matrix has been used for photo galleries, restaurant menus, TV programming guides, video transcripts, agendas, and much more. It makes no assumptions about your content, so you’re free to mold it into whichever shape you desire. The possibilities are literally endless.

Cell Types For All

Matrix comes bundled with Text, Date, Number, and File cell types, and it’s compatible with over 80 others, including EEHarbor’s own Field Pack, Wygwam, Playa, and Assets.

A Breeze to Set Up

Setting up a Matrix fields couldn’t be easier. Columns can be added, edited, sorted, and removed right from the Edit Field page.

Simply the most important add-on ever created for ExpressionEngine.

Still essential to most of the sites I build…

If there were an EE add-on hall of fame, this might just be the first one voted in.

Expression engine is simply uselesswithout this addition. Being able to give your website structured entry is the essential point of difference between an ee site and the ‘other’ popular choices. Why hasn’t ee made this a default pack?

Almost needless to say at this point, but Matrix has become an essential add-on for every site I built. The additional level of flexibility it adds to your custom fields is without parallel. Classic Pixel and Tonic.

Before converting to EE in 2010, I was very concerned about the CMS’s ability to handle complex arrays of data, media and relationships.

Once I saw Matrix (and Playa) I was completely re-assured.

EE wouldn’t be where it is today without P+Ts premier add-ons. Rock. On.

Absolutely essential add-on with a critical UI flaw. Removing rows is hidden and confusing for clients and content editors. Without any competition, P&T have put off an update until the next version. Unfortunately we have clients using this today and leaving blank rows whenever they edit content.

This is one of those Add-ons that goes in every install of EE I do. Works flawlessly, and is practically essential. Worth every penny.

Everything that’s been said above is true, this is a key feature that any site should use.

I have a page showing latest design and technical changes on my site, witch I used to maintain using tables and other horrible, manual code.

With Matrix it’s not only intuitive but easy, thanks guys!

Simply a great plugin! Perfect for a situation where you have a field with a variable length and/or you want to see all of your data at one time, like an image gallery.

Awesome plugin, i can not imagine building an EE site without using this plugin now. Definitely worth every penny.

If you have any complex data save yourself the headache and buy Matrix. Tabular Data, photo galleries, events, bios, videos if you can dream it Matrix can help you implement it.

This is the first add-on I purchase for most of my projects. Not only does it give you incredible flexibility, but it does it with a gorgeous look. It’s true value goes way beyond it’s actual price.

I have definately added matrix to my initial purchase list for new projects. It turns seemingly complicated tasks into ridiculously simple set-ups that clients love.

As said previously, how did we ever build sites without this? Brilliant add on, the first thing I install on any project.

There was a time I actually built sites without this add-on; yet I can’t remember how I did it. This plugin is an incredible asset to Expression Engine and more than worth the price. Probably my favorite add-on as a developer.

I’m embarrassed at the sites I created before I found this gem.  I used to use relationships and multiple weblogs to acheive the same effect.  The end result was bloated and confusing.

Matrix is just one of those tools that you can’t build many sites without these days.

Incredibly easy to set up, easy to use, and totally indispensable add-on. Can’t recommend it enough.

Matrix is critical to my workflow.  It increases the flexibility of EE exponentially and allows my clients to easily add photo galleries, menu items, employee info, and so much more to their sites effortlessly.  I love Matrix!
