This is part of discussion with Georgios
"if it is possible to group FLEXIcontent fields and also maintain all configuration and other features"
"if it is possible to chain selects field for cascading changes while fields are inside a field-group "
This is his reply (implementation)
New field grouping supports
- ALL of the multi value fields
- can group ungroup existing fields without data loss
- Frontend FACETED filtering continues to work
New Cascading not only supports select fields but also supports
- ALL FC indexable fields: select, selectmultiple, checkbox, checkboximage, radio, radioimage
- supports multi-value fields in any order (selectmultiple, checkbox(image))
- No redudant server calls, and has friendly/smart messaging
- support fields with/without JS (e.g. with/without select2)
- smooth re-loading of existing values, showing ALL dependent values and not only the last selected value
- support both Fixed fields and DB modes, mixing them in any order
- AND finally it is usable inside field-grouping (this is not demo-ed on the video below)
Peter Bui of Joomlabeat done an interview about FLEXIContent team
"This week I finally have edited and put together the interview I did with the team from FLEXIContent at J and Beyond 2014. This was the first time the entire team had met face to face. Emmanuel, George and Akarawuth speak about their experiences in Joomla, how FLEXIContent came about, and how you can use it within your organisation, business or for your next site build."
