Remove fields from a component

If you no longer require a field within a component it can be removed:

  1. Press the Content Types & Entries button in the sidebar. The Content Types & Entries drawer will open revealing a number of options.
  2. Open the Component listing screen and locate the field in the component that you want to remove.
  3. Press the cross on the field to remove it from the component. A Delete field confirmation screen will be displayed.
  4. Press Delete, then Save, followed by Publish to confirm your changes.

Field removal behaviour

The data associated with the removed field for an entry is preserved until the entry is updated and saved.

Any code created referencing the removed field would return null or the default value for the type through the Delivery API.
