Extend custom field meta data to include order aspect and field type

  1. youngmicroserf

    Hi, I think it would be great if WP could include an order aspect for multiple custom fields with the same key and information about the intended field type.

    Ideally, there would be a core UI mechanism for custom fields beyond the current text input field that would allow easier management of custom meta data (like plugin "simple fields" or "verve meta boxes"), but giving standards for the saving structure of different types of custom meta data would at least make custom field meta box plugins compatible with each other (eg, making the field-type "file" use the WP upload mechanism).

    This seems particularly useful given the increasing use of custom post types.

    I have seen a plugin doing this, but it would be great to have it by default!
