We have several content types (features) on our Backend, now site Administrators (authors) and content managers need some field to be disabled when creating content. How I can manage it? I heart about the 'field_permission' module but I'm not sure if that module can solve my problem. What could be the best way to disable these fields? Is there some module or could some one explain where I should start? Pseudo code are Welcome Thank you in advance Hermann
Here's what I usually do.
- Find contents that have data for those fields you want to delete.(You can easily find it in DB)
- Delete all contents found in step 1 or remove data from those contents.
- Remove the field from content type.
It really depends on your setup. If you dont want those fields anymore you can simply delete them off content type but if you want those fields to be available for certain roles then go with something like field permission module. Also, if you have those content type defined in features, I would recommend making changes to it first and then rebuilding the features.
