I was reading this article and, man, did I do the right thing with Custom Field GUI?
I’m second guessing. No, I think it’ll better if I put the label above each control, instead of currently to the left of the control and right-aligned. Imagine, currently, those controls would shift to the left or right depending on the length of your labels; not the case when you have the label above the control. Hmm.
Also, don’t you think it’s better for the workflow if we can put those buttons (“Save and Continue Editing,” “Save,” and “Publish”) below the custom fields?
Custom Write Panel is another WordPress plugin in the work. It is a plugin that will allow users to create custom write panels, alongside the existing Write Post and Write Page panels.
This custom write panels will appear under the Write panel, as Write Book Review, Write Aside, or Write [fill in the blank]. When a user chooses to write post under, say, Write Book Review, the write screen will be pre-set with the assigned category (Book Review). It will display certain set of custom fields (Book Title, Author, ISBN, etc).
Screenshot coming soon. Follow updates in Custom Write Panel section. For those of you who’ve been using Custom Field GUI, get ready to ditch that plugin.
I have updated Custom Field GUI plugin to resolve the issue of custom fields being deleted after a comment is posted. The issue is reported after the release of WP 2.1
Download Custom Field GUI 1.5
Good news! This plugin is compatible with WordPress 2.0-beta-1.
I actually finished coding the GUI for this plugin. (I believe. Hmm, it’s been awhile.) I just need find the time to test it and that’s it.
I’ve been trying to add admin panel for this plugin. It, so far, adds up to so many lines of code. But once the feature is available, there’s no more need to edit the
conf.ini via FTP. This admin panel will allow the creation of a new GUI and deletion of currently available GUIs.
