Default value not selected

I’m just curious what I’m doing wrong here. I’ve tried this with radios, selects and checkboxes and can’t seem to get a default value to be selected.


Where are you using this field? Defaults only work if a page is newly created, so it won’t work in site, for example.

Oh, so it won’t work even if the field is newly added to a page. I see now.

Exactly, if you want to set default values to already existing pages, you could:

  • enter the values manually
  • update the pages programmatically
  • use a default in your template $page->field()->or('default')
