Entries Subset Overview

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


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 Release" entry type.

You might want to limit selection of entries only authored by users in the "Development" or "Copywriters" user groups, this is now possible.

Using Entries Subset

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

Entries Subset Roadmap

Some things to do, and ideas for potential features:

  • Tidy all the things
  • Make it more obvious what the criteria is when selecting entries in the ElementSelectorModal
