Support » Fixing WordPress » Custom Fields, A series of keys inside a key.

  • Hi,

    I am in the process of creating a website for a client, though I have stumbled upon a really annoying thing. It just seems impossible to wrap my head around it. I am trying to make it easy for my client to add a series of photos to the portfolio, these photos need to be categorized by photographer. Each photo has to have a description with the credits for the photo. I succeeded in creating this page, but it was painful to manage. I’m now trying to solve this using custom fields, but I have arrived at yet another boundary.

    I want to link multiple keys to a certain key. This may seem strange but it’s the same way making a post works. But I can’t do this with the way the custom fields work, my question is if there is a way to do this with a plugin, or if I can do this in another way, maybe through the new post feature.

    Example of what I mean:

    • Photographer(John)(Or Stylist, Model etc)
      • Image
        • id(0) (auto_increment?)
        • url(
        • Photographer(John) (maybe this one is not needed)
        • Stylist(Joan)
        • Model(Maria)
        • Clothes(Vintage)
      • Image

    I hope you can see the similarities with the new post feature, and above all that you can understand a bit what I mean, because I can see that it could be confusing to understand. Hopefully someone can help me with this, THANKS IN ADVANCE !
