Ordered Custom Fields v1.0.1

By Jay Allen
Posted July 22, 2011, in Custom Fields.

Details

An plugin for MT 4.3x and Melody installations with the Movable Type Commercial pack (or better) installed which allows for ordering and persistence of custom and native fields.

FEATURES

  • Users can reorder native and custom fields for each supported object type and save that preference on a per-object, per-blog basis.

  • System and blog administrators can additionally save the field order as the blog's default order for each supported object type.

    • The default is used by any user who has not already customized their field order for the object type and blog.
  • Currently supported object types: Entries and Pages

    • Each object type has its own storage space for user preferences and blog defaults meaning entries and pages no longer clobber each other!

PLUGIN REQUIREMENTS

INSTALLATION

Unzip the download archive. Move the resulting folder to $MT_HOME/plugins/ (where $MT_HOME is your MT or Melody application directory).

If you use Git, you can do the following:

cd $MT_HOME/plugins
git clone git://github.com/endevver/mt-plugin-ordered-cf.git

CONFIGURATION

There is no configuration for this plugin.

USAGE

Go to the editing screen for any object of a supported object type. All supported object types will have a Display Options panel located on that page.

Using the options on that panel, you can reorder and hide/show fields and save that and other preferences. Preferences are usually specific to the user, object type and blog.

System administrators and administrators of the current blog can opt to save the preference as a blog default for that object type.

LIMITATIONS

The plugin currently only supports entries and pages since those two object types already have Display options panels.

FUTURE PLANS

Support for all other object types CustomFields supports will be added soon.
