I want to be able to create a content type with a number of fields (naturally). One section of the content type needs to be like the attached image with the ability to:
- group items together (e.g. an 'ingredient' in a recipe' - "2 cups flour, sifted"
- link (via autocomplete) to existing nodes [INGREDIENT NAME field below]
- add multiple items with a "more" button

Below is a screenshot from the 'Recipe' module. Is it possible to create this structure with CCK and can this be then added in a feature? content group

Use field collection to make a group of fields, then set that group to unlimited entries, simple.

    thanks that worked a treat! I also used field_collection_table to make adding content easier Mar 19, 2015 at 3:46
  • needed to apply this patch to field_collection_table to make it work correctly - drupal.org/node/2104475 Mar 26, 2015 at 22:51
  • Good work! Did you need to add the extra bracket as per comment #12? If so it would be useful to let others know on that thread that you found the comment to be correct.
