content type with multiple input entries
Hello, I hope someone can help me. I am trying to build a new content type. One of my questions within the content type is a grid entry type. Basically it asks the individual to list companies they are qualified to sell insurance for. basically each would be a little sub-input form asking the following questions for each:
- Name of insurance company
- Type of Insurance you are allowed to sell (drop-down)
Then I imagine the information will go to a grid display. And the user could click a button that says "Add Another" and they would be asked the same qustions above, until all of their insurance companies are added to the line.
Keep in mind, this insurance section is in the middle of a much larger form that is gather all sorts of details from the user. e.g. Business name details, address details, etc.
Does anyone know how I can create a sub-section within that will allow multi entries within an bigger form?
I have tried googling words like "grid", "matrix" but haven't found anything. The closest I have found was a multi-step (FAPI) discussion, but I really don't understand how to implement it. http://public-action.org/content/drupal-7-form-api-drupal-7-multi-step-f...
Ultimately all of this information needs to be collected in the database as seperate entries under the same business (e.g. node), so I do not think Webform module will work because it does not save entries as different fields.
Any help is much appreciated.
