How to customize the submission data on a single post. (3 posts)

    I've been reading through the f.a.q. and I'm not seeing where it explains how to customize the data that is displays on a single post. I actually only want to call the data to single post template myself. For instance I allow file uploads of videos and I need to add the url of the file upload to a script so I can play it. And I want to call the title in a special place and nowhere else and exclude all these things like user IP address, and timestamp. Is there a tutorial for that because what I saw just looked like how top customize the data shown in the summary for the admin.

    Ok from what I understand I'm suppose to use the summary-multi to setup the layout of how the data is submitted into the post. So I've basically erased all the for a custom template. I found a function to get a value but it isn't working in my single.php.

    <?php fm_summary_get_item_value('song-mp3'); ?>
    (And if this is the value for a file upload is it just suppose to return the url of the file because that's all I need)

    Also maybe I'm completely missing this but how do you allow the user to enter their own title for the post?

    If you want the user to make their own post titles, first give the field for the post title a nickname, like 'user-post-title'. Then go to the 'Advanced' tab, then under 'Publish Submitted Data' there is a field for the post title. Put in a shortcode to grab the user entry:
    [item user-post-title]
