Single Entry

EE Version Support

  • ExpressionEngine 2


If an item is crossed out, it might be untested, not applicable or incompatible. Contact the developer to be sure.


  • jQuery for the Control Panel

Add-On Type(s)



Have you ever had a channel in an ExpressionEngine installation that required its own set of custom fields, but only needed one entry? Perhaps a homepage or an "About Us" section that needed its own custom content but wasn't a traditional list of posts? Single Entry can help. With a few simple settings, your control panel can be set up to easily create and edit these posts without the risk of adding new and unnecessary entries to these channels.

Once configured, Single Entry moves your single entry channels out of EE’s standard publish and edit workflow and into a new section of your content dropdown.  From there, you’ll have quick access to creating and editing the individual entries in those channels without the hassle of navigating through the standard EE edit workflow or accidentally creating a new entry in a channel that can’t use one.

Best of all, your data and development workflow aren’t changed in any way. Single entry channels are still completely native and can be assigned custom field groups, category groups and statuses, and used in templates just like always. And through the configuration panel, even the name of the new section in the content dropdown can be customized.

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.

A slick little extension.  EE3 has this built in (as of v.3.4.0) but for any legacy 2.x builds this works a treat.

Love this add-on. I have found that I use this more often than I originally thought I would.

A rather elegant solution to a problem. Hat tip to Viget Labs.

Would have rated five if it has MSM support but still excellent.

One of my favourites! Should be included by default with EE.

Only wish it would support MSM.

Cures a common pain point, essential for most sites!

Can not recommend this highly enough. It is perfect for most jobs and those that quite often don’t require the vast array of Structure’s features.

This is a no brainer; get it and save yourself.

I’ve been looking for something like this for a very long time. I always have single entry channels to control things like site settings, home page content, etc.. Works amazingly. So simple. This will be a standard plugin for all of my EE installs. Highly recommended!
