[resolved] CMS overlay for Easy Columns or another method? (2 posts)

    I have used the Easy Columns plugin to format the information on http://townofwaterfordsd.com/meetings/. This page will be updated monthly by the client. I am concerned she will not like the fact that she has to search between the coding for the place to insert the new information. (My initial instructions will be to copy the top section of code and paste it before itself to add a new monthly line).

    Would there be a way to either create a simple form that she could fill out with the date, link to Agenda, Link to Minutes?

    Or, is my choice of Easy Columns my problem and there is a way to format items pulled from child pages nice and neat like it shows now?

    Blondie,
    As much as I love my plugin, I think using Easy Columns is a hack to get the data posted in this situation.

    If you're adding data monthly, then it sounds like you might want to have a custom post type just for that data and then have your client add a new post every month.

    Then you could have a quick shortcode on a page to pull and display just those post types with specific formatting.

    That'd be a custom plugin, but if you'd like something like that created, I'm open for freelance!
