I have a question! I am using the extension on a site under construction. i've added some fields, but what if i want to change something about them? there only seems to be a delete option, am i right?

You're right: At the moment the interface to edit fields is missing - you could edit the fields directly in your database

thanks for the answer :) i don't have that many fields so i can also just delete and re-create, but it's good to know i can change the db as well.

Hm.. I'm somewhat confused: I expected to define some tag so i can access the image from a [[smarty tag ]] ?
HOw can i embed the field dynamically, i.e. as a background for a div?

Well, [[$entry.extrafields.internalname]] pretty much is a smarty tag, isn't it? It's not available in your CSS stylesheet, but neither are the other smarty tags. Anyhow, you could still put something like:
Code: Select all
<div id="[[$entry.extrafields.internalname]]">Bla bla</div>

in your templates, but it's beyond me why you would even want to do something like that. If you want to use the extra field as a background image or something, you could still do that with inline css in your template though, like so (I think):
Code: Select all
<div style="background-image: url([[$entry.extrafields.internalname]])">blabla</div>

Would it be possible to have the option for a 'checkbox' field in the options for field types?
