Advanced Configuration

Simple Grids & Tables was designd to be simple, hence the name, however there have been many requests to add more configuration options to the columns in a Simple Grid field. Instead of a large refactor, and complicating the UI of a Simple Grid field configuration screen, you can now manage the configuration options of each column by adding an array to your site's config.php file. You can define global options that apply to every column type, or define the options of a specific column in a field. Since this is an advanced configuration you will need to inspect the HTML and find the IDs, or take note of the IDs in the URL when editing the fields.

Support is not provided to help find the IDs of your fields and columns, but here are some examples of how to find them:

Finding the IDs in a standalone channel field
Finding the IDs in a Bloqs field

Example Config

$config['simple_grid'] = [
// Examples of global overrides for each field type with their default values and possible options.
// These settings will be applied to every instance of the field type, regardless of where it appears.
// You can define field specific options (examples below), then default all remaining instances of
// a column type to the global settings if defined.
'file' => [
'allowed_directories' => '', // [int] (ID of upload directory)
'field_content_type' => 'all', // image
'num_existing' => 0, // [int]
'show_existing' => 'y', // y, n
],
'text' => [
'field_content_type' => 'all', // numeric, integer, or decimal
'field_show_file_selector' => 'n', // y
'field_text_direction' => 'ltr', // rtl
'field_maxl' => 256, // [int]
