This macro creates a form with various types of input fields. It also acts as a logical group of form fields. It's best used together with the Live Template macro.

You may create multiple Field Groups macros on the same page or template.

The latest version of Scaffolding now has a full-screen Field Group editor, which includes a toggle for full-width/fixed-width mode to better suit your page layout or your editing preferences. 

The field group macro field names have been changed. The following are the new names for the fields:

Old nameNew name
Date Date Field
Content ListPage List
Custom ListDropdown List
AttachmentAttachment Upload
TableTable Field
