    Hi,

    I'm using repeated fields in one of my projects. Can you tell when problem with fields order will be resolved.

    Thanks,
    Adam

    Hi Adam,

    We are just working on this. We hope to have a version before the end of the month that will allow you to control the order of repeater fields.

    Best regards,
    Bruce

    This is coming in Types 1.1.5, hopefully next week. You'll have a nice drag-and-drop interface for repeating fields. Should have been there from the start, but better late than never :-)

    I'll write about this new version in our blog, as soon as it's ready:

    Sorry to hijack the thread but I see you mention that you'll have a nice interface for repeating fields. Do you plan, anytime soon, for the ability to repeat groups of fields. I find this a massive problem in the current Type plugin and I'm having to use other custom post types in order to solve these needs.

    If I have a slider whereby I have an image and caption then I would need these to be in a repeating group so I could add as many slides and captions to a slider as I required.

    Would love to hear your thoughts on this Amir.

    Types 1.1.5 will have a drag-and-drop interface for reordering repeating fields (not groups).

    In the next version, we're going to look at enhancing the field groups. It will still work with Types parent / child relationship, where field groups belong to a post. We understand the limitations of this, but it also seems that many other users are enjoying it.

    However, we are planning to make this relationship optionally hidden and transparent. Meaning, if you don't care for having a container post, Types will not bother you with having to set it up. You will be able to drag fields to a group and Types will handle the underlying container and relationship.

    From a DB point of view, we're happy with having a container for field groups. This makes querying and using them a lot easier more more robust. We understand the issues with usability and will be addressing them.

    Types 1.1.5 is scheduled to go out in about 10 days.

    The next Types version, with the other changes I'm talking about here, is about 6 weeks away.

    I hope this helps.
