  2. Hello,

    Thank you for this tutorial. I wanted to ask you if you ever used entity reference and if there is a significant difference between field collection and entity reference?

    1. Hi Traian,

      Field collection and entity reference are very different modules. And yes I do use entity reference a lot.

      Field Collection

      You would use field collection to group a bunch of fields together (simplest explanation). 🙂

      For example, let’s say you want to create an author field on an article content type where you’ll store a first and last name of the author.

      Article (Content type)
      - Title
      - Body
      - Author
      - - First name
      - - Last name
      

      You can use the field collection module to group first and last name field as a collection.

      Entity Reference

      The Entity Reference module allows you to create a field that references other entities like node, user or taxonomy term.

      Hope this helps.

  3. How can i add Comment section for each Field-collection sections ?

    I have Step1, Step2,… etc.

    Now user want to add comment for any steps.

    Thanks in Advance.

    1. If I understand you correctly, you want to display comments on specific “field collection” fields?

      The core comment module only works with nodes. Look at the Reply module (https://drupal.org/project/reply). I have never used the module, but it looks good.
