Inline linking field for Silverstripe

This module provides:

This module is under active development, pull requests are welcome.


Rather than taking our content editors to a new data entry screen for the purposes of adding a link to a record, the field allows a link to be added to the current record within the context of that record.

The link can be added using one of the provided fields:

  • Enter an external URL
  • Enter an e-mail address
  • Select a page
  • Select a file asset
  • Enter a phone number

Upload field example

The object of this module is to:

  • allow editing and creation of links within the context of the parent record
  • have no Javascript dependencies, beyond those provided by core framework fields (we tried)
  • act as a drop-in replacement for the LinkField provided by gorriecoe/silverstripe-linkfield (NB: for has-one relations only)

Elemental inline editing

This module supports inline editing in Elemental. The field will detect whether it has been loaded in an inline editable context and makes allowances for this.

Rather than create a React component for the field, we use the standard MutationObserver API to detect field changes in the administration area based on an HTML5 data attribute attached to the relevant fields.

A source file is provided in client/src/js/app.js for reference.

A future goal is to decouple the administration (entwine) event detection/handling and allow the field to be used outside the administration area.
