Additional fields for taxonomies? (3 posts)

    Say I've got a Post Type that I created called Movies. It has a taxonomy I created called Actors.

    I want to associate additional fields with Actors. So if I assign Tom Cruise to this taxonomy, and it hasn't previously been added, then there are fields that I fill in for it. For example, "male," "http://www.tomcruise.com/," "Syracuse, New York," "47," etc.

    Those additional fields would be standard across that taxonomy. There also needs to be a way of editing existing fields, so I could update if the website's URL changes, for instance.

    There are two key details that complicate this:

    1. These fields need to be set within the WordPress UI, not in the template files.
    2. It's not enough to simply put "47" as a child taxonomy of "Tom Cruise" and call it a day, given that these different fields will be displaying differently, so it's not just enough to output the text of all child elements.

    I should probably include a question, heh.

    Can I actually do this? I've searched for plugins and came up empty. So developing myself, where should I be looking?

    As an example, does anything like this exist in WordPress, where you can attach multiple sets of data to a single object? Or, could this be something I create with a plugin? If so, where would I start?
