Support » Fixing WordPress » Adding a 2nd tag field in P2 theme

  • See the image I linked to via Google Drive. This explains what I mean. I know the WP back in 2009 or so spent a huge amount of time developing P2 and I still use it to take notes in instead of Evernote because I just think it’s fast and easy.

    That said, I ALSO want to use it as a quotes database now and I’ve created a second taxonomy called “People” and I’d like to be able to quickly tag them from the front end as I added the quotes just like I do when I tag a thought or idea. Have two taxonomys also would allow me to categorize the type of quote in the normal tags while tagging the person in the other like tags: positive, sales person: Norman Vincent Peele

    Question is: Anyone either 1) Know of an existing solution that will do this for tags and autopopulate just like the default version does (not categories. I already added a cat dropdown addon.) 2) Know how difficult it would be to engineer this, if there isn’t a solution 3) Any interest in helping in this effort?

    P.S.: I’ve tried upgraded to Automattic’s efforts with the Oxygen plugin but, for some reason, I still prefer their initial effort when they had it as a theme so I continue using it. I just updated the theme to be mobile-friendly / responsive. That’s it.

    Not off the top of my head, I don’t.

    2) Know how difficult it would be to engineer this, if there isn’t a solution

    It sounds simple but then again when you say that you spend three years trying to remember where that time went when all you wanted to do was create a checkbox for form. Wait.. Wrong experience. Sorry. It does sound simple in that you could add an input and an AJAX call.

    3) Any interest in helping in this effort?

    I’m sure there would be somebody out there who may have already started something similar but I haven’t run into them yet.

    Thanks for the response Jose. Yeah, it’s easy to think it’s going to be easy, for certain. I hear you.

    If anyone out there has developed anything like that let me know!
