[resolved] Do I need a custom field here? (4 posts)

    So this page is rocking it and does just what I need.
    <[+itemtag+] class='gallery-item'>
    <div class='logoHolderLeft'>
    <[+icontag+] class='gallery-icon'>
    <div class='logoHolderRight'>
    The one thing I am wondering about is putting the url I want the client to link to in the caption area of the image. Doesn't seem natural. Where can I create some container where they can add a URL associated with a logo that I can call as needed in the markup? INCREDIBLE PLUGIN!

    Good to hear from you - glad things are going well and I assume you resolved the JPG thumbnail issue from a few days back (I'm going to mark that one resolved).

    As you've suggested, I think a custom field would be a good choice to allow control over the link behind your logo gallery. Have a look at this recent topic along similar lines:

    How do I use an image as a link to a page?

    If that doesn't give you what you need or you have more questions, post an update here and I'll expand on the idea.

    Thanks again for all the good words and for your interest in the plugin.

    Thanks David. Yes I got the earlier issue resolved.
    So I have added a custom field using the Types - Complete Solution for Custom Fields and Types plugin which seems to be powerful and let me easily add a field called URL_Logo. I am just trying to simply have it appear out on the page and am calling it like this [+custom:URL_Logo+] It is not appearing. I am seeing that you recommend some plugins to create custom fields over other ones. I tried the one you recommended but couldn't get it to make just a simple text custom field to appear and with limited documentation I am a bit lost. I know you are not in the market to support another plugin so I am not going to ask you how I can make it! And David, I don't know what I would be doing without this plugin on so many levels. I have so many clients that ask for repetitive data to appear. Once I get a handle on this it will open up my skill set tremendously! Thanks again!

    David, I found a plugin that made the custom field perfectly and I am home free. Consider this resolved! I used Advanced Custom Fields plugin.
