Custom Code Field API No Field Showing in Manage Fields

The only thing required for your field to show up in your "Manage Fields" page is to create a field with field_create_field(), you may define the field using hook_field_info().It can be cumbersome to those settings arrays from scratch. I would recommend this approach. Build your field using your field UI, and install Devel.Then view this blog post:

http://steindom.com/articles/exporting-and-creating-field-definitions-drupal-7What you really care about in that blog post is:

field_create_field($info_config);So in short:

In short: I want to create a field 'Referenced Content' that links to /node/add/content-type/. My actual question is: Why is there no option ( see my hook_field_info() function) in my select list in Manage Fields?

Basically I'm just learning the beginnings of module development and I'm trying to make small steps. So the first thing I want working would be to add a field width a widget that would be part of the configuration options in in admin/structure/types/manage/content-type/fields

I looked at the field_example module that is part of the examples module and here's my code so far (why I think custom code is needed look below).

array( 'label' > t('Referenced Content'), 'description' > t('A button that allows content author to add new content that is referenced.'), 'default_widget' > 'entityreference_add_new_button', 'default_formatter' > 'entityreference_add_new_button', ), );

function entityreference_add_new_field_formatter_info() return array( 'entityreference_add_new_button' > array( 'label' > t('Simple HTML link'), 'field types' > array('entityreference_add_new_button'), ), );

function entityreference_add_new_field_formatter_view($entity_type, $entity, $field, $instance, $langcode, $items, $display) $element array(); switch ($display['type']) case 'entityreference_add_new_button': foreach ($items as $delta > $item) $element[$delta] array( '#type' > 'html_tag', '#tag' > 'a', '#attributes' > array( 'href' > '#', ), '#value' > t('This button is currently linking to @code', array('@code' > '#')), ); break; return $element;

function entity_reference_add_new_field_widget_info() return array( 'entityreference_add_new_button' > array( 'label' > t('Button to make new referenced content'), 'field types' > array('entityreference_add_new_button'), ), );

I left out the validate functions and the is_empty() functions thinking that they have no influence on showing up in the Manage Fields configuration page or not.

In case you're wondering why I'm thinking custom code instead of just adding a field with some markup here's the end goal:

An example is that there is a contenttype 'transfer order' that is referenced to contenttype 'transfer file'. There is a one to many relationship between a transfer file and transfer orders respectively. I have a view setup for the content type 'transfer file' that lists it's title, date and edit field. Added to this view, I will be needing a field that is a link to a node edit page. Like this node/add/transport-order/. needs to be the id of the transfer order content type. The idea then is that fields in the new transfer order would be already filled in with content that comes from a transfer file that is referenced.

note: I posted another question where I initially thought I needed to do something that the references dialog module would already do. So I guess now this doesn't seem to be the case and should call for some custom code.

Update: So I tried reducing my code to just the hook_field_info() to feed the field_create_field() function which should get me started getting the field into my Manage Fields page as a babystep.

code in my .module file would be like this:

function entityreference_add_new_field_info() return array( 'entityreference_add_link' > array( 'label' > t('Entityreference link'), 'description' > t('Entityreference link'), 'default_widget' > 'entityreference_link_widget', 'default_formatter' > 'entityreference_link_formatter', ), ); field_create_field('entityreference_add_link');

This doesn't put anything in my Manage Page table under 'Field' (Should be an option in my drop down list, right?).

Music Only Plays for a Second and then Ends?
An incomplete song play is mostly due to the corrupt file which you have downloaded. Although it may show around 7Mb for a file but if the file is corrupt then it won't play any part of it or in some cases just plays the start and skips to the next.What exactly a corrupt file isA corrupt mp3 file means that some audio bits and tunes are missing or contain some bug. The mp3 player usually plays these bits if all are there in the proper order. If some bit of data is missing then it simply skips to the next track.The corruption of the file can be judged by the amount of file is playable. If you can only play the start then the whole mp3 is corrupt. It is waste of trying because some times you could get only till the middle and later by default it skips.Detect a corrupted mp3 or mp4 file:-The best way to check a corrupted file is to do a simple fast forward(don't do a 4x fast forward for you will not know when the file is fast forwarded very fast) till the end of the file. In fast forward it will skip to the next available data point. As you are able to only fast forward till the middle then the remaining portion of the file is missing/corrupt. If fast forward jumps directly to the last then the whole song is corrupt and needs to be deleted.For an mp4 file when the video turns pixelated during a fast forward instead of the smooth audio/video then that video is corrupt. A complete video plays the audio and video with ease even if you fast forward.Let the file be partially or completely corrupt you have to delete it because corrupt file will never play completely.How to avoid a corrupt file1)Always download files from a reputable source. Some sites don't have proper files to which many fall trap to. If you download from good sources then you will not have that issue at all.(My suggestion is to avoid using free downloads as far as possible as it's against the law-piracy issues and also you got cheap audio with these kind of issues)2)There are some download managers which check for the link, file before download. If the link or file is missing/corrupt then you can avoid this issueWhen I successfully copy my music to my SD card, each song only plays for a second and then continues onto the next song. I was able to remedy this by copying each song over individually, but obviously this is untenable in the long-run. Might this be an issue with my new SD, am I copying too fast, or what else might it be?I was able to replicate this for skipping to the center of a song. I can't hear an entire second, but it does seek to the center of the song and play a bit of it. If I try to go back to the beginning of the song after every skip, the Music Player eventually crashes.For any of the mp3s with these issues, if I restart my phone it deletes these songs.·OTHER ANSWER:When I successfully copy my music to my SD card, each song only plays for a second and then continues onto the next song.
