Fieldtype, Module


Smart members field is enhanced field type that gives user ability to relate members in same manner one can relate entries. You just need to create a field (same way you create field for relationships). Smart members field type is supported with normal field type, Grid and Fluid field types. Smart members field has beck-end from which you can assign Channel entries to any members or primary roles. So, our plugin will works in both way means you can assign members to Channel entries as well you can assign Channel entries to members or primary roles also. Front end code to populate data is same as in relationships that gives maximum control over the field type. Also use to populate data is same as Channel entries loop just need to write {exp:smart_members_field:entries} instead of {exp:channel:entries}.

Some of the features of Smart members field type is given below:

  1. You can manually choose what you want to list down in create/edit entry page field. (textbox where you can define what you want to populate in entry)
  2. Search among the members to relate them.
  3. Instantly toggle selected and unselected members in field.
  4. Support of GRID and FLUID field type.
  5. Easy (and almost like relationships field) front end codes to populate data.
  6. Allow custom field in front end to populate any normal or custom member field information of a member.
  7. Support filter by group ID or primary role ID and member ID
  8. Support order by and sort parameters to maintain flow.
  9. You can assign Channel entries to Member and render it with very simple loop {exp:smart_members_field:entries} similar to {exp:channel:entries}.

Filled our need of adding a “related author” to entries. Easy to implement and the support was quick and friendly.
