[Question] Implementation of Schema.org into Document type fields

Victor Hugo Garcia asked on February 27, 2014 11:19

Hello friends,

We are currently working on a website and initially the idea is to implement schema.org into document type fields.

I have been wondering if there is a good approach out there to implement this, however we think probably could be easy to just add a new property to the field name: Schema.org Name, Schema.org Url. if we are able to add those settings to a field into a document type, we can grab those properties I guess of that specific field.

So my question here is, is there a way to add custom settings to a field into a document type?

if not possible, which approach do you suggest for a correct implementation?

Thanks in advance

Hi Victor Hugo (really?:))

Thank you for your message.

Just to check if I understand your question -> Lets say you have a field in your document type as Textbox form control and you would like to add some custom additional settings/information to this field?

If you you could add it easily through Site manager -> Development -> Form controls -> Text box -> Properties tab. And you will see list of all settings of this particular form control and you are free to add one.

Also it could be better if you would develop your own form control instead of changing ours. You can based your form control on ours. Please see following guide for more information regarding this ->


Kind regards,

Richard Sustek
