A Fluid field is a collection of fields. A Fluid field can contain any native field type except another Fluid field. The fields assigned to the Fluid field can then be used multiple times in the same entry when creating/editing the entry. The author also has control over the order of the fields.
Fluid fields give the author control over the structure of their content, while ensuring the final output uses the correct design elements. All that is done without the author worrying about markup or html. They simply add content to the fields, and template can wrap each field in the proper markup.
Select all fields that you want available in your fluid field on the publish page. All native fieldtypes except another fluid field are available.
A fluid field is initially displayed as a simple dropdown ‘Add’, populated with the field names assigned to the fluid field. When you choose a field from the dropdown, it adds it to the page, maintaing all of the field’s settings, instructions and requirements.
Fields can be used more than once and in any order. They can be re-ordered within the fluid field by dragging up or down.
The frontend will output the various field contents in the order specified in the entry.
