Meta Extension

Allows adding custom form fields to posts, storing them in custom meta fields. Integrates NGG, WT, and WP-DM.

This plugin takes a simple concept of giving you fields to enter information that use the meta tags built into Wordpress and expands on it. Modifying conf.txt in the plugin directory will allow you to enter custom fields to the Posts pages to add textfields, textarea, dropdown selections, checkboxes, and radio selections.

On top of all this simplicity, it also integrates several popular WordPress plugins. With gallery selection for NextGen Gallery you can select a gallery to save the id to a meta field for your post to pull in your theme. Support for WordTube video selection is also added. WP-Download Manager is also supported in this initial release to get ids for downloads as well.

Now while that may seem enough to make this a popular plugin, there is more. Meta Extensions allows you mark the fields to auto add tags based on field title or content (explained in the readme). It also allows you to set up checkboxes to add a post to/remove from a category automatically as wanted. All from the single conf.txt file included with the plugin.

One of the latest features is the ability to place conf.txt in your current theme's directory. By placing conf.txt in the theme directories this allows you to run the plugin with multiple themes on your site and have custom conf.txt per theme to only show the specific fields needed in that theme. If the file is not in the theme directory, it pulls from the default conf.txt in the plugin's directory.
