Configuring OSF Entities Field Widgets

From OSF Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Once all the bundles and fields have been created in Drupal using the OSF Entities mapping process, you can continue the configuration process of these fields by specifying the field widgets you want to use for each of them, and then to configure each of these field widgets such that they behave the way you want them to behave.

The first thing to do is to click the field widget's name that appears in the WIDGET column of the list of fields in the bundle you are editing.

Then you will be prompted with a list of field widgets that you can use for this field type. Select the one you want to use and save your configuration option. Then Drupal will prompt you with a series of additional configurations that you will be able to configure for that given field widget.

Here is the list of all the field widgets, by field type, that are supported by OSF Entities:
