[resolved] adding a second field to each post (3 posts)

    Where would I start if I want to allow submission of an additional field for each comment? That is, each user-submitted post would come in pairs and text would be stored separately. As an example, a user would submit text in a box called "What I want" and also in a box called "What I got."

    This plugin already has one user submission box and I could perhaps change the name of it from "Post Content" to something appropriate to my site. How would I then add a second field?

    Ultimately, I want to display both fields together on the main page, but just getting the submission aspect of this to work is enough to tackle for now. I appreciate any suggestions.

    It's possible to add additional custom fields but it requires a series of modifications to the source code, so not recommended. It's a good idea though and something I'll try to implement on the next update.

    Thanks for the response and for considering this for the next update.
