Jake,

That’s excellent… I always wondered how the custom config files worked in the admin. I always assumed they were just tables/rows in the db somewhere.

They are stored in the config table which contains the “configName” (the name of your custom config file) and “wconfig” which is a WDDX packet containing the entire config form options. These items get “unpacked” and stored in application.config.

And you ought to see how much better this is in v5.0 :) Basically the entire formtools engine is available for custom config screens, including wizards, image/file options and more.
