Nice and powerful CCK!

Posted on 14 September 2015

Does what it says, works as expected. Great extension! I work with ZOO, Content Builder and Seblod, but Fieldsattach is the simplest.

Ease of use

It is very straightforward and easy to use. Clean UI. The video instructions get you up and running in minutes.


Just one word: Wow! :-D Cristian is very friendly and helpful. Even though I had some special issues with my template, he fixed it!


Everything you need for using this CCK is in the documentation. There is even docs about how to implement and output in own template.

I used this to: I use this wonderful CCK for a customers application where they can create pre-designed offers. They just have to fill all fields out and it generates the whole site. Fieldsattach was the perfect choice for this!

Works like a charm. Does not rewrite core, just extend Joomla! functionality. For me the most popular and most useful extension.

Ease of use

Simple, easy to use, user-friendly.


Surpassed my expectations.




Adding fields to articles in a category (possibly recursively) turns Joomla into an OO system with categories as classes. Brilliant.

Ease of use

Field groups simply appear as extra tabs in the article editor. You don't get any more intuitive than that.


Documentation is lacking. The only example is waaay too much Joomla! in one gulp. A "show single field value" hello world example is needed.

I used this to: Admission of bias: I HATE JOOMLA, and I only ever do anything in it when I absolutely must. I look for extensions that will make my life easier. This extension relieved me of writing the admin interface for custom fields, but the front part is poorly documented.

Excellent contribution. It works really well. And the support is the best. If I could give more stars I would ... thanks Cristian.

Fantastic solution

Posted on 30 July 2014

This is a great solution to adding structured data to Joomla. All the other CCKs duplicate large amounts of good Joomla functionality, which is just like reinventing the wheel. FieldsAttach has a much better approach in just adding a layer on top of Joomla, nicely augmenting the existing UI and features.

It's a fantastic solution, Thanks!

I came across this extension because of a presentation by Brian Teeman. He coined it "The cck that is not a cck". I think he's right, as Fieldsattach is not trying to replace Joomla core functionality, as most cck's do. It rather is complementary to the core, and in my opinion this is a very good concept.

It works pretty good as well, and I am very happy with it. For the inexperienced user, some aspects could be smoothened a bit more. Also I found a little bug when using it for categories rather than articles. The bug was solved quickly by the developer.

Which brings me to the point of support, and my experiences with that are excellent.

My overall rating of this extension is "good", not "excellent" because I think there are still a few rough edges. Yet I do hope that Cristian will continue developing and refining Fieldsattach and keeping up his high standards of support. If he does, I suppose that I will have to update my review.

Installation was completed. All settings were in place and I could see the extra filed in article edit mode. Problem I'm not seeing the content displayed in frontend. I'm not sure if i'm missing something though i believe all my setup is correct. Documentation is not helpful either.

Owner's reply: Hi, I'm so sorry for you first impression.

Fieldsattach is a extension for help you make a administrator easy and fast.

The problem with the front end is than joomla not give a type plugin for render it. Only for a com_content -> article. for others places we need other ways for render the extrafields. BUT, this ways are more powerful than automatic form.

The overwrite template and fieldsattach API is easy and it's useful not only for fieldsattach, for every component in joomla. It's a general technique, for this with fieldsattach you learn a lot of things for use in others components.


Great Support

Posted on 11 April 2014

I have been using this extension for a couple of years now and it has always been a lifesaver for making my website a lot more user friendly when the client comes to edit content.

I had an issue with the newest version on Joomla 3 but that was promptly resolved by Cristian.

I thank the developer a lot of this extension. I have used it on all 4 big websites I have built since starting with Joomla 3 when it was first out.

The updates have come out and kept it up to date. Its just nice to be able to add extra fields to the article and then put one line of php in the content article template for each field to bring it through. No need to restructure content and I can add it to old articles too.

I wish this feature was built in to joomla but thank the developer they built it.

I use Fieldsattach on my intranet website where it serves me with great forms used to enter and search data.

It is very easy to install and use. I would say that it's pure logic.

In case any problems occur. Don't worry. The support is fast and really great!

I used most of the CCK's and I can say that Fieldsattach is in my top 3.

Just instal it and use it! You won't regret it.
