I want to include in my content type a CCK "Select List" field. Which module(s) should I enable so as to have it as a choice? Thanks


You have to enabled Option Widgets, as well as Number and/or Text. Required modules for question 7615

Create a new field by going to admin/content/node-type/%content-type%/fields (where %content-type% is the machine name of your content type)

Create a new field. If you enabled Text module, you have the option of Text. If you enabled Number, then you have the option of Decimal, Float and Integer.

Select the Operations you want

Clicking Save will take to the Field setting page. Scroll down to the bottom and type in the allow values for your option widget.

And you are done.


CCK is the module you need - turn on Options Widget in your modules list under the CCK category. If you're using Drupal 6, the configuration should look like enter image description here

If you're using Drupal 7, it should be even more straight forward as it's one of the options presented in the Field Type.

  • Yes,but when I choose "Text" I have not the "Select list" option.Only the Text and Text are options.Should I enable any extra modules?
