Installing and Updating

Requirements

Make sure your system meets the minimum requirements:

Installing Field Pack

  1. Upload the ee2/third_party/fieldpack folder to system/expressionengine/third_party/
  2. Upload the themes/third_party/fieldpack folder to themes/third_party/
  3. Go to Add-Ons → Fieldtypes and install whichever fieldtypes you want. Field Pack fieldtypes will be prefixed with “Field Pack”.

Updating Field Pack

Updating from an earlier version of Field Pack 2

  1. Upload the ee2/third_party/fieldpack folder to system/expressionengine/third_party/, overwriting the old one
  2. Upload the themes/third_party/fieldpack folder to themes/third_party/, overwriting the old one
  3. Clear your browser’s cache

Updating from the old Dive Bar fieldtypes

Field Pack is the successor to seven separate add-ons, availabe from the old P&T Dive Bar:

  • P&T Field Pack
    • P&T Checkboxes
    • P&T Dropdown
    • P&T Multiselect
    • P&T Radio Buttons
  • P&T List
  • P&T Pill
  • P&T Switch

If you have any of these installed already, simply install Field Pack 2 per the instructions, and then delete the old files. You won’t need to worry about converting your fields or uninstalling each of the old fieldtypes in the CP; Field Pack 2 manages all of that for you when you install the new fieldtypes.

Here are all of the folders that are safe to delete once Field Pack 2 is installed:

  • system/expressionengine/third_party/pt_checkboxes
  • system/expressionengine/third_party/pt_dropdown
  • system/expressionengine/third_party/pt_field_pack
  • system/expressionengine/third_party/pt_list
  • system/expressionengine/third_party/pt_multiselect
  • system/expressionengine/third_party/pt_pill
  • system/expressionengine/third_party/pt_radio_buttons
  • system/expressionengine/third_party/pt_switch
  • themes/third_party/pt_list
  • themes/third_party/pt_pill
  • themes/third_party/pt_switch

If you’re using Expression Engine 2.7 or later, you might have to delete these folders before you’re able to install the Field Pack 2. Don’t worry, though - you will not lose your data!
