Im about stumped here, Im running v6.1 and I created some custom fields in the Item from. I can enter data no issue, but the fields are only visible is Edit mode. As soon as I save the data I enter is no longer visible, as soon as I go back into edit more the data in the fields are there.....

Quick update, it seems that data is not being held in the fields, if I close and re open the data is no longer in the field.

Can anyone point me in the right direction and let me know what Im doing wrong here.


Hi Trip, How did you do the customization? I would suggest you to do the customization by creating custom modules. Please do not add/modify fields through the User interface. Because It would be a temporary customization. When you update the modules, you will no longer see the customization that you have done already.
