Text module overview

Last updated on
30 November 2016

The Text module is included in Drupal core. When enabled, the Text module can be used to define simple text field types.

The Text module defines various text field types for the Field module. A text field may contain plain text only, or optionally, may use Drupal's text filters to securely manage HTML output. Text input fields may be either a single line (text field), multiple lines (text area), or for greater input control, a select box, checkbox, or radio buttons. If desired, the field can be validated, so that it is limited to a set of allowed values.
