Fully integrated ACL

DPFields uses the native Joomla permission and access features to restrict content and actions for your visitors and site members. The permissions are inherited form the component and do define who can do what with the fields. Access control is also implemented on a per field basis. Like that you can restrict who can see the values of the field.



DPFields uses the Joomla native language features to support your multilingual website. Every field can be assigned its own language.

All texts in DPFields are in a separate Joomla language file, which can easily be translated into your native language. To have permanent language translations in DPField, you can publish your translation on transifex, which we will ship with all future releases of this Joomla custom fields extension suite. You can find the full documentation here.
