Association UI for Symphony: Editor


Editor offers an interface to open and edit existing or create new associated entries. It is a companion to the Selector interface and works with core select boxes and tag lists as well as with Association fields.


  1. Upload Editor to your extensions folder.
  2. Enable Editor in the backend.
  3. Add an associative field to your section and choose one of the editors.

Please keep in mind that interface are only available in combination with dynamic values, if you are using default select boxes or tag lists.


There are two modes:

  • Editor: open and edit
  • Editor (Create New): open, edit and create new

Open, Edit and Create New


Each associated entry will offer a page icon that opens the editor on a separated page on click. If you've enabled entry creation an additional button will be added for that purpose.

Editor supports nested associations.

Please note: It has been reported that browsers might not display the Editor icon in the interface. A solution to this problem is documented in issue #17.

Close Editor

In order to close the editor you can either hit the close button in the upper corner of the page or you can click outside the Editor page.
