Select Field w/ PHP Generated Groups

  • Small bug with the way select fields are being generated in the admin UI for fields and field groups created by php.

    I’m seeing instances where the ‘default_value’ option gets rolled into the ‘choices’ option.

  • Hi @jwss76

    Thanks for the bug report, but I’m not sure I understand exactly where the issue occurs. Any chance of a screenshot?

  • Just looked in… I’m guessing it was a caching issue since it seems to have cleared up… If I notice it again I’ll post a screen shot.

  • Oops, Spoke to early on a solution, Here’s the screen shot:

    Display of select field default_option populating select field choices.

    Here’s the code that is creating the field:

    array (
    	'key' => 'field_538f375f143cb',
    	'label' => 'Show Related Posts',
    	'name' => 'tmv_related_posts',
    	'prefix' => '',
    	'type' => 'select',
    	'instructions' => '',
    	'required' => 0,
    	'conditional_logic' => 0,
    	'choices' => array (
    		'none' => 'Do not show related posts.',
    		'category' => 'Show posts from Category.',
    		'tmv_feature_type' => 'Show posts from Features.',
    		'tmv_topic' => 'Show posts from Topics.',
    		'post_tag' => 'Show posts from Tag.',
    		'tmv_today_type' => 'Show posts from Today.',
    		'cl_category' => 'Show posts from Classifieds.',
    		'cl_job_field' => 'Show posts from Job Type.',
    		'tmv_sport_tax' => 'Show posts from Sports.',
    		'tmv_sport_team_tax' => 'Show posts from Teams.',
    		'tmv_business_news_type' => 'Show posts from Business News.',
    		'tmv_business_field' => 'Show posts from field.',
    		'tmv_fr_lake' => 'Show posts from lake.',
    	'default_value' => array (
    		'none' => 'Do not show related posts.',
    	'allow_null' => 0,
    	'multiple' => 0,
    	'ui' => 0,
    	'ajax' => 0,
    	'placeholder' => '',
    	'disabled' => 0,
    	'readonly' => 0,
  • Hi @jwss76

    Thanks mate. I’ve added this issue for v5.0.1


  • Hi @jwss76

    Thanks again for the bug repot.
    The issue is a miss-use of the default_value setting.
    Please change 'none' => 'Do not show related posts.', to 'none',.

    The issue here is that the default value is meant to be an array of values, not labels.

    Hope that makes sense.
    Changing the above will fix the issue!
