ExtendedAttribute v1.1.0

Posted December 2, 2002, in MT Tags, Templates, Widgets.


This plugin gives you a new template tag: <$MTExtendedAttribute$>. This tag allows you to associate additional fields and values with Movable Type Blogs, Categories, Entries, and Authors. These additional fields and values can be stored either in a data file in your file system, or in a Template Module. The format of the stored data is standard CSV (Comma Separated Values), so you can edit it by hand, or use a spreadsheet program like Excel or OpenOffice Calc.

For example:

  • You could define a "long" blog description and a "short" blog description, so you can show the long description on your index page, and have the short description on your archive pages.

  • You could define multiple icons or pictures for each category. So you could have a small category icon beside each entry on your index page, and a larger version of it on the category index page.

  • You could flag certain entries in your blog as extra special, by defining a stylesheet that only gets attached to the archive pages for these entries.

  • You could define additional style attributes on a per-author basis, so that posts by different authors show up in different colours or fonts.

  • ...And much more.
