Use WordPress as a Collection Manager. Customize WordPress' post edit screen by creating your own metadata schema's.
Meta Collections is developed to turn WordPress into a Collection manager. Beside 'Posts' and 'Pages' you can add your own custom post types (a Collection e.g. 'Films', 'Recipes' or 'Products'). For that particular post type you can add you own Metadata schema (custom fields: For 'Products' a price, image and manufacturer field). For example, if you want a Dublin Core metadata schema you can. That schema can be a mixture of system and custom fields or a completely customized metadataschema. You can intuitively compose the user interface for the post type in a preview screen by dragging and dropping metafields in the right places using neat metaboxes. Fields can be validated and can consist of multiple instances (e.g. more dan one ingredient field with a custom post type 'recipes'). You can add metafields in the post overview table.
Wishlist * File * multiple checkboxes * ask/request!
Shorcodes is still quite simple you can add the follow shorcode in your posts description in order to use the fields
[collections metafield="identifier" instance="all" seperator=" - "]
The shorcode analyzed: 1. 'collections' to identify the shortcode for the collections plugin. alwya begin the shorcode with 1. 'metafield= metafieldID' you can look a metafieldID up by editing a metadataset and then a metadatafield. 1. 'instance = number' to enable use of multiple values in a metafield. use 0 for the value for instance 0 or 1 for instance 1. Default if variable is not used is 0. Use 'all' to return all the values. 1. 'seperator = 'number' if you use 'All'for 'instance' then you can define a 'seperator' which seperate the values.
The plugin is published in a language supporing two languages, English and Dutch. Feel free to translate it to another language.
