[resolved] Commands For Custom Fields (4 posts)

    This first link is with us publishing a post via Postie:

    This second link is how a post is supposed to look on our site, when you post the normal way, via the WordPress platform:

    So, you see the first link is submitting an error line on top because it needs a "Magazine" field, and we do not know how to write the command for the Custom Fields called "Magazine" and "MagazineColor." Notice in the second link, the "Magazine" field has been entered as "Fashion" and the MagazineColor field has been entered as "color2" (MagazineColor just tells the website what color to highlight this article in, when the article is displayed on other areas of the website...we have color1, color2, color3, up to color7 as options--but it doesn't actually MATTER which color is picked).

    Question here is: how do we write a command in email so that we're able to enter the custom fields, Magazine & MagazineColor, in the same way we do for posts on the WordPress platform (per the attached screenshot for the second post)?

    Second question is, how do we keep the post's image from appearing in the body of the post? (It's fine appearing on top and in the thumbnail area, above "Small Bite," but we don't need it to appear a third time in the body of the post, as you can see it's doing in the first link done with Postie).

    Thank you so much, and we hope to be able to use this great plug-in!

    By the way:
    This is a screenshot of what the WordPress post from the second link looks like, when we're editing it in Edit mode in WordPress. You'll notice that the Custom Field Templates, "Magazine" and "MagazineColor" appear at the bottom: http://www.thedailymocha.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/screenshot.png

    You'll also notice, by looking at the published article here on top, http://www.thedailymocha.com/2013/09/06/kim-gets-new-blond-hairdo-kanye-approves/
    that we entered "Fashion" for the custom "Magazine" field and "color2" for the "MagazineColor" field.

    (Not an expert at all...don't know coding, just trying to use the plugin! Please help ;-))

    OK, solved the second question by selecting "Yes" for "Use Custom Image Field."

    So, only have one question now, which is how to write a command for Postie to recognize the "Magazine" & "MagazineColor" custom fields ;-).

    You will need a Postie AddOn created to update the custom fields. See http://postieplugin.com/extending/
