Try using custom templates ...

Because there have been some suggestions of custom field to do multiplication or something , i want to write this.

You don't have to use the default template of Flexicontent, if the template does not fit your needs.

It just an automated way to output your item data, but not obligatory to use it at ALL.

Just put fields you need in some template position (not important in which position since, we WILL IGNORE the position), and then make a COMPLETELY CUSTOM items.php file to output your item data:

<div class='label'><?= $this->fields->label; ?></div>
<div class='value'><?= $this->fields->display; ?></div>

<div class='label'><?= $this->fields->label; ?></div>
<div class='value'><?= $this->fields->display; ?</div>

<div class='label'>Total</div>
<div class='value'><?php
$multiply_result = floatval($this->fields->display) * intval(this->fields->display);
echo $multiply_result;
?></div>

Do whatever you need at the template, use preg_match , preg_replace, explode whatever to shape the result according to your needs, of course not everything can be done at the template, but a lot of stuff anyway.\

Also you don't have to completely scrap the template, if you are strong with css/html you can shape the positions according to your needs. The positions idea, is very good, no need to scrap it completely.

Micker the:

$this->fields->display;

already contains the output of content plugins so you don't need to do anything, other than specify the triggering at the field configuration.

But some times YOU DO NOT WANT to enable plugin triggering in the field configuration, because you want to combine fields together.

E.G. You have 4 textarea fields, that you can combine with some html and then trigger a tab creating plugin ... To create tabs !!!!

THE BONUS is that the user when editing will see the tabs CONTENT seperated, so he / she will not be able to destroy the html code of the TABs !!!!!!!!!
