The custom fields component is quite simple, you just need to add the fields using the custom fields component then whilst editing your article you wish to display these cusotm fields with, simple click the button at the bottom of your editor and a popup will guide you to adding values to these custom fields. Then finally using the content plugin or module for the custom fields, you can then display them on your website front-end.
You will need all 4 extensions (2 plugins, 1 module, and 1 component) for this to work as expected.
I hope you enjoy the extension and find it useful, any bugs of the component please either comment on my website or direct it to the forum on my website.
* No longer errors or "fake saves" when the article isn't yet created/saved.
* No more mysql errors if there is no current fields added.
* CSS fixed for component backend for IE7 where button dissapeared.
* THIS IS BETA, PLEASE BE PATIENT *
I tried mod_custom, but that's a pain, because I need to have a module for each article that I want to supplement. Awkward. With this extension I can keep all relevant info with the article, making it much easier to administer.
Thanks for sharing your ideas and your Extensions.
