Content type Table

For what is the "fields" field in the content_types table?

Anybody have a add-on using custom content types and would share this?



Well-known member
Take a look at the "xf_content_type_field" table.
The xf_content_type.fields field contains a serialized array of all the available fields for a particular addon.

As a developer, there are various handlers available to you: Like, Search, Alert, Attachment, News Feed, Abuse Reporting, Spam Cleaner, etc. A total of 10 handlers in all. You can add each of these features for your content type by implementing a handler class for it.

Whatever class you create as a handler, you need to add its name to the xf_content_type_field table, and rebuild the fields cache. This would update the serialized info in the xf_content_type table.
