[Plugin: Custom Field Template] How do I use this? (5 posts)

    I can not find any thorough tutorials or explanations on how to use the Custom Field Template plugin.

    The primary question I have is about the templates. CFT appears to have two areas called, "Temple #0" and "Template #1". I understand that I can assign these templates to Page IDs, post types, etc. However I need more templates. Can I make more templates within this tool so that I can apply them to different IDs and post types?

    I figured out the above issue but I can not find any real documentation on this plugin. How do I use this?

    My friend, you're not alone with this question. ;)

    It seems that there is a huge need for some kind of tutorial. A video tutorial would be great. It wouldn't take a long time to demonstrate the usage, which is highly appreciated.

    There is a code list here on this page but no explanation regarding the most of those complex codes.

    I really hope that the author considers this issue and makes it a little easier for people to be able to use this great plugin.

    I just uninstalled it. What a waste.

    Each template represents a set of fields. If you for example choose to define a short set of fields for just file attachments and a second one for other stuff such as addresses, etc., You'll have a select button in the bottom of your post in admin there you can select which form set to choose. I think you can apply to different ID's and also roles.

    You can also set an access user level in each field by using level = 1 to allow some users to have access to some fields in any of the templates.

    By the way, have you checked this thread?

    By the way, have you tried More fields and Advanced Custom Fields?
