A field will not display in the control panel, it has a class of ‘entry-type-hidden’ set against it, however it has not been set as hidden.
I’ve tried creating a new tab and dragging the field into that from the Toolbar but even the new tab doesn’t appear for other users (I selected All users and published it).
The field only appears for me as Super Admin a when I have the Toolbar open, and even the new tab doesn’t appear unless I have the Toolbar open !
I need this field to be visible to other users.
It’s possible the layout is corrupted and that’s a really old version of EE. What I’d do in this situation, delete the layout. Then rebuild it, completely fresh.
But first, I’d just start over fresh building out the layout you want.
I pressed ‘Reset Layout’, so no there is no layout.
Unless the Toolbar is open the field has the class ‘entry-type-hidden’ added and is hidden.
Unfortunately only I as Super Admin can see the Open Toolbar option so I cant even ask content admins to use that as a solution, I will have to make any changes that are required to that field and there is a lot of content on this site.
I did do a project search on entry-type-hidden in 2.11 to see what’s determining that style, but it didn’t come up.
There is a third party fieldtype called ‘entry-type’. Any chance you have that installed? I believe it conditionally hid a field based on the value of another field? I wonder if that might be what’s going on.
Whew! Because I was out of ideas.
I haven’t used the field myself, but my understanding is you’d use it to show/hide fields based on the value of another field. So like ‘Have you been to Florida?’ If you say ‘yes’ a field opens up to ask how you liked the beach or something.
I’m betting if you go to the field settings you’ll probably be able to spot what determines whether it shows.
