Support » Plugin: Custom Content Type Manager » [Plugin: Custom Content Type Manager] get_custom_field(image) When image field empty

  • Hi, first of all i would like to thanks the creators of this marvelous plugin. I’m really fan.

    Now with the matter: When creating a custom content type, in a custom field image, when i call on the template the function get_custom_field(‘image4’)and the image field was let empty, it return the url of the content type page instead of an empty string.

    It would be more logic to return an empty string or a ‘false’ so we can check easier if the field was empty.

    It’s that a bug ? or it has a meaning i dont catch ?

    Hey, thanks for the kind words — I really hope the plugin is useful, but it has been a humbling experience for me to realize that no matter how hard I try to eliminate them, there are always bugs in a dev project.

    That sounds like a bug — I apologize that I’ve been working on several non-WP projects the past month so I haven’t had much time to spend updating CCTM. Would you mind filing a bug report?


    Hi! Well i was really in need of a custom content type that can handle image fields. So i’m very glad with yours.
    The amount of work is not small so is normal bugs appear.

    Right now i’m working on modifying the plugin to solve the “delete” boutton to erase lines on wp_metapost, and made a cheap arrangement for the bad return of the get_custom_field when field its empty.

    I fill that last one on a bug report.


    Bug repaired, there is just a simple check to do on he functions.php inside the plugin folder. The only lines modified are those with the /* FIX */ comment

    here is the fix to this problem as i posted on the custom content type manager bug forum:

    Ooops — looks like the forum stripped your code from the post. Could you post this fix in the bug tracker? Many thanks.
