Entries Subset plugin for Craft CMS

Craft field type plugin that extends the core Entries field type to give extra settings



To install Entries Subset, follow these steps:

  1. Download & unzip the file and place the entriessubset directory into your craft/plugins directory
  2. -OR- do a git clone directly into your craft/plugins folder. You can then update it with git pull
  3. Install plugin in the Craft Control Panel under Settings > Plugins
  4. The plugin folder should be named entriessubset for Craft to see it. GitHub recently started appending -master (the branch name) to the name of the folder for zip file downloads.

Entries Subset works on Craft 2.4.x and Craft 2.5.x.

Entries Subset Overview

This field type is an extension of the built in Entries field type. It allows you to specify extra criteria (currently only EntryType) in which to restrict the available entries for selection.

As an example you might have a News section which has a few entry types. One of the entry types is "Press Release", you may then have a block where you would like the user to be able to select a "Featured" press release. With the standard Entries field type they would be able to select anything from the News section, with this plugin you are able to only allow the selection of those with the "Press Realse" entry type.

Using Entries Subset

When creating a new field the extra options for EntryType will appear when selecting EntriesSubset fieldtype
