Disable nodes for list field


Is it possible to disable nodes for a list field the same way it’s possible to disable them for the writer field? Without disabling them, users can convert a list field into a text field, which is not the idea. (Also, it defeats the whole point of a list field in my opinion.)

The documentation says you can disable marks but no mention of nodes.


I always prefer Structures to Lists for this reason. There may be a way to disable the nodes (prevent from removing them), but I like the UX (add/remove/reorder) of the structure better even for single column structures:

Hm, how do you manage to enter other nodes than lists in a list field? Can’t reproduce this?

They are just there by default.

Maybe I should clarify I’m on Kirby 4.

Right, that information would be helpful right from the beginning.

In Kirby 4, you can set nodes to false.

I get this:

Then try limiting the nodes to lists:

        type: list
          - ul
          - ol

Same error. :frowning:

Strange, this worked for me with K4 Beta 1 without issues.

I’ve downloaded the latest K4 Beta 1 just to be sure it’s not an old bug, and no, I still get the same error. :frowning:

I’m gonna go with the structure solution for now. Thanks, @Thiousi!
