Multi Checkbox

By Byrne Reese
Posted November 29, 2010, in Custom Fields.


This plugin provides a new custom field type to Movable Type Pro users. This new field type, called a "multi-checkbox" allows one to have multiple checkbox as opposed to a single checkbox. A new template tag will also be defined for these custom fields to determine whether or not a checkbox has been checked.


  1. Create a new Custom Field.

  2. Select "Checkbox (Multi)" as the field's type.

  3. In the Options text area that appears enter the value of each checkbox delimiting each value by a comma. E.g. "Blue,Yellow,Red".


  • Movable Type Pro

Hi Sunil, I really love the plugin, too. It has made managing my blog a lot easier. I used to get frustrated with moving things around, and clicking multiple times to basically do the same thing. Which makes me wonder why this isn’t in MovableType by default and not just Pro? For example this page was driving me crazy, for some reason it won’t let me add multiple checkboxes, even though it worked on other pages.

In recent years, fingerprint sensors have become an essential part of high-end smartphones (and some midrange), so as to unlock the terminal to make payments safer. However, almost all brands are betting on capacitive sensors that are placed on the front home button or the back, but there is a Qualcomm technology that can integrate readers most versatile form and rumored Xiaomi Mi 5s could be one of the lucky ones to integrate .
