Module Monday: Select or Other

Module Monday: Select or Other

Drupal’s FieldAPI (called ‘CCK’ in Drupal 6) gives site builders a great set of tools for customizing node editing forms and other input screens. Even for simple text fields, it provides a set of useful widgets like select boxes and radio buttons for choosing between existing options, and text fields for entering in custom values. If you need both of those at once, however — a list of canned options, and the ability to enter in a custom value as well — you’re out of luck. Unless, that is, you install Select or Other module.
