    I'm trying to use the new filters... there is no documentation anywhere on them and also the names aren't being properly assigned... the filter should be based either on column name or the field id of what's being pulled in... I'm getting things like


    What's the point of column-meta-1, it's much more useful to filter based on the ID of the field you're pulling of what's either stored in the postmeta table or column name... I don't even know what column-meta-1 means... please explain asap...

    I have added the filters so you can hook into them as you like without messing with the plugin's code. I haven't found the time yet to document each filter, maybe I will put this example in the FAQ if it works out for you.

    But I will try to help you here. In some cases it can even be easier to just use the wordpress core hooks and filters to control the value output of each column. My plugin uses the same.

    What would you like to be the output of column? and what is the input exactly?

    If you want to change the output of any custom field column you can also use another build in filter. Here's an example:

    add_filter('cpac_get_column_value_custom_field', 'my_custom_value', 10, 3);
    function my_custom_value( $meta, $fieldtype, $field ) {
        // change output on custom-fields KEY
        if ( 'my_custom_field_key' == $field )
            $meta = 'my custom text';
        // change output on custom-fields VALUE
        if ( 'my_custom_field_value' == $meta )
            $meta = 'another custom text';
        return $meta;

    Hope this can help you get started :)

    Hi Bart, Good News. I have made adjustments to the filter to give better control. There will be an easy to understand example in the FAQ section.

    The release is not out yet but the fix will be included in v1.4.6.3

    If you need a beta release just send me a PM and I will send you one!
