Properties widget to edit properties on a piece of content


Provides a dynamic properties field that allows to store product properties or similarly structured information. A property consists of an attribute, the name of the property and a value. It belongs to a category.

Properties are stored in a structured way so that they can be compared, indexed, processed and displayed in different ways. By default, a table and a definition list formatter is provided.

Separate modules allow to compare properties of different entities and and to create templates consisting of categories.


  • Maintain categories and attributes through an
    administrative user interface
  • Provides a dynamic properties field that can be attached to any entity
  • AJAX-ified table widget allows to easily add properties to content
  • Properties can be displayed either as a table or a definition list
  • Compare properties of different entities
  • Create templates which can be selected when creating new content
  • Fine-grained permissions systems allows users to freely choose categories and attributes or just select from pre-defined templates


Properties is for Drupal 7 only.
