  • Copy ft.cki_sitelist.php to your system/expressionengine/fieldtypes/ folder.
  • Select CKI Site List as the field type when creating a new custom field type

How to use

The field type supports single tags only.  Use the tag on its own to return the selected site short_name_

Simple Example

Lets say you have defined a custom field with a field label of Site list and field name site_list and through the publish form selected a site with an short_name of “default_site”.  You can produce the site short name of the selected site by simply calling the field name tag on its own:

        {exp:channel:entries channel="blog"}
            <p>You selected site short name is {site_list}</p>


<p>You selected site short name is default_site</p>

Parameter Example

Using the same site you have selected in the above example, we can retrieve different site attributes by using the display parameter:

        {exp:channel:entries channel="blog"}
            <p>You selected site ID is {site_list display="id"}</p>



<p>You selected site ID is 1</p>



Allows you to specify what site attribute to return.  This parameter is optional, and if not used, the tag will return the site short name by default.

Accepts the following variables:

  • id – Return the site id
  • label – Returns the site label
  • short_name – Returns the site short name
  • description – Returns the site description
