[resolved] How to add new text fields eg "uploaded by" (7 posts)

    Hi, I have been wondering how to add a new field which says uploaded by and then the username of the uploader.

    Can anyone help? I have a feeling it's got something to do with custom fields? I have never used custom fields before and inexperienced...

    Could someone kindly tell me how to add new fields like the plugin creator has done on his site.

    Thanks

    I mean I want to add a new field saying "Uploaded By" in the downloads page. For example you have version, date posted,tags etc. Where as HERE he has extra fields like "Licence" and "documentation" etc.

    How can I add new fields like he has done?

    PS: Here is my downloads page: http://www.yourdubstep.com/downloads/

    Sorry I know I'm not replying to your post, but could you tell me how I can see the downloads page from the front end? I have it all set up in the back, I'm just not sure how to create a page for it to show up in the front.

    Thanks in advance

    @dpDesignz,

    Create a page or post and add this shortcode: [download_page]

    That will show the frontend.

    Ok well I figured out how to do it (Missed the last bit of the faq).

    Is there any way to add a shortcode to a field? eg. GD Star Rating Plugin short code.

    Also is there any way to edit the downloads page template? I would like to add some php code to each download. Is this possible?

    Thanks in advance.
