Hi,

I have a blog category with date of birth as an extra field. This is a text field and the format should be dd-mm-yyyy. I have two questions on this extra field.

1. Is it possible to run a validation on this extra field tthat the format is dd-mm-yyyy?
2. I also want to create one computed extra field from this date of birth field. In the computed field I want to keep the same information but in mm-dd (no yyyy here) format. This field will be used for sort and search.

Any pointers will be of great help.

Thanks,
Nikhil

Hello,
I would suggest looking into JoomReems's - joomreem.com extrafield related extensions which provide chained fields.
The alternative would be using a custom built extension which loads the validation scripts and manipulates the data.

Thanks for the reply.
I will reach out to 'joomreem.com extrafield related extensions' support to evaluate whether that extension will work for my use case.
