Toggle

Toggle is a fieldtype for storing yes/no or on/off data. On the publish form it is rendered thus:

../_images/toggle_fieldtype.gif

Field Options

Default Value

When creating a Channel Entry does the field start in the “on” position or in the “off” position?

Template Tags

This field is primarily useful with conditionals:

{if toggle_field}
  Yes
{if:else}
  No
{/if}

When used as a single variable, e.g. {toggle_field}, it will output a 1 for the “on” position and 0 for the “off” position. Handy if you are exporting channel data for later import or external use. Or writing templates for robot overlords. Or for switching between two images:

<img src="/images/robot_{toggle_field}.png"> <!-- robot_0.png or robot_1.png -->
