Support » Plugin: Wordbooker » Custom field values showing

  • Nice plugin, but I have a couple of suggestions.

    1. The Wordbooker custom fields are visible as you haven’t added an underscore to hide them. This is most annoying as it clogs up the Custom Fields meta box, when all the options are already available in the Wordbooker meta box. e.g. wordbooker_extract should be _wordbooker_extract, wordbooker_options should be _wordbooker_options to hide them from the custom fields meta box menu.

    2. Is there any way of controlling which users can have access to or see the Wordbooker options? i.e. to have only editors see options while authors and below don’t see anything?

    Many thanks.

    I think it adds three fields which is hardly “clogging” up the Custom Fields Meta box. I can look at changing that for V2.

    Setting “access” levels is also something that is pencilled in for V2.

    Well, it adds unnecessary clutter then. The problem arises with clients whom one has set up intentional Custom Fields for. Once other unnecessary custom fields appear it starts to confuse them, and there is always the opportunity for them to play with the wrong custom field. Best just to keep things neat and focused.

    Besides this, when the plugin is deleted it does not remove any of this meta data, which persists (along with the keys) in all the posts that used them, even when the plugin has been deactivated and deleted. Again, leaving behind unnecessary clutter.

    Thanks for looking into it anyway.

    I also had a problem with the custom fields displaying on the site. Not sure what the problem is. However, it was occurring with the Products posts using WP E-Commerce. We had to disable the plugin and delete the “wordbooker_option” custom values. Any idea when V2 will be coming out?

    Post Meta should not just be randomly displayed by plugins because that is NOT what its supposed to be used for: the post_meta is there to store additional details about a post – may I suggest that WP E-Commerce is displaying post meta that it should not be doing and you should take that problem up with the developer of that plugin.

    Steve, a very useful plugin indeed!

    Somewhere I read that you are including a feature of avoiding the wordbooker_options meta appearing with other meta. I have upgraded the wordbooker plugin. However, I can’t see any settings to do this. Could you please tell me how to do this?

    Thank you in advance

    It looks like something odd is going on as I renamed all the new meta with the leading _ but they still show and no-one seems to know why.

    Hope someone comes up with a fix for this one
