Add-On Type(s)



ExpressionEngine fieldtype, almost identical to the native text field with the added benefit that it will search previous values and autosuggest them to the editor.

This free fieldtype is useful in situations where your clients have text fields which hold complicated or easily forgettable content. The fieldtype will search for other data entered on the field and autosuggest it back to the editor.


  • Version 1.0
    • Initial release
  • Version 1.1
    • Added separate theme files
  • Version 1.2
    • Fixed bug where multiple SuggestFields on an entry would use the same datasource due to typeahead.js being instantiated using a class selector, solved this by using the “name” selector. (Thanks to amphibian)
