make a list simple to multiple ! was created by Alaabouch
Hello,

I have an additional field in the form of a simple list and which contains names of drugs that I use them from the back office of the platform to create articles but over time I realized that the selection of these drugs must be multiple. my question is can we make this multiple field select without I start again from the beginning. that is, do I have to fill in the field with the names of drugs ?

Change the type of the extra field. Simple.

Hi,

how to do it ? I point out that the field has been created and I don't want to start all over again from the beginning. if you mean change it from the database and replace "Select" with "multipleselect"! I already tried with an additional test field but it didn't work. the number 1 is always displayed instead of the terms added in the field !

Edit the extra field under "Extra Fields" in the K2 backend. Can't get any simpler...

Hi,

Yes I have already tried this method but it did not work for this field exactly. when I change to multiple list and I click on saved, it fails and it leaves the K2 component! I have tried for others and it works well. but there is a particularity in this field, it is that it contains almost 7305 line. it is the only one that contains so many words. I wonder if there is a possibility to modify from the database? so we can force it to modify for multiple list !

Using phpMyAdmin or some similar tool, locate the #__k2_extra_fields table and the relevant entry for that extra field. As you can see, there is a "type" column. Change from "select" (or whatever you have) to "multipleSelect".

Hi,

it worked from the database. except that the field is not displayed to the user if and only I open the article and I re-choose the selected word from the administration page. knowing that I have almost 7000 thousand article !!!

I would like to know how can we widen the multiple list fields a little, it's too tight to choose between the lines

You should actually be seeing this: jmp.sh/cGQoZ9a

So something (another extension or custom CSS added by someone) is probably attaching/changing K2's styling. In any case, it's a matter of CSS styling for select elements with the attribute "multiple".
