[resolved] Possible to add custom fields input? (8 posts)

    Hi, I just installed this on WP 3.4.1 and all seems to be working so far (thank you!)

    Would it be complicated to add custom fields to the form? I need to add input for telephone number and email address and if possible a checkbox list with 4 or 5 options to choose from.

    I will have a look at the code to see if I can figure it out although I don't have any real plugin editing experience so hopefully someone else could shed some light if possible?

    Many thanks

    The plugin does not provide built-in way of adding custom fields, but I can do it as a service as time permits. Contact me at http://perishablepress.com/contact/ for more information. Thanks.

    Does anyone know of a plugin that allows you to create custom fields and display them with some flexibility?

    No plugins come to mind, but WordPress' built-in custom-field functionality is super flexible as-is. There are plenty of tutorials if it will help, including two of my own:

    I ended up hard coding my own form, similar to this tutorial:

    You can add whatever custom fields you need then, but it is a bit more complicated than using a plugin.

    Hi Everyone
    I tryed adding a new custom Field to the plugin. And it does show up in the backend and the form «user_submit_mail» but I cant figure out how to send it to the database. Can enyone refere me to the right place of the plugin code?
    till now I edited user-submitted-posts.php and submission-form.php but I cant find what I am looking for? Or do I need to edit the tables first? in phpMyAdmin?

    Sorry, my querstion seems a bit stupied. But I just cant figure it out rightnow. Could anyone help pleaase?
