    You can’t, as in you don’t know how to make custom fields editable or that it doesn’t work?

    Thanks a lot, I had no read this, sorry.
    One question more, only the admin can edit the posts? or another user can?

    Thanks, again.

    Everyone with the appropriate capabilities can edit posts. It depends on how you configure your post type.

    Scribu, your plugin is awesome! I do however have an issue I have been struggling with for a while now and can’t seem to find any supporting docs for this. Would you be so kind as to look over this code and tell my why I cant seem to get the editable fields to be placed in the correct span….

    function elist_display_additional_info(){
    	global $post;
    	$custom_options = get_option( 'elist_custom_options' );
    	$custom_options_order = get_option( 'elist_custom_options_order' );
    	$output = '';
    	if ( $custom_options_order['et_custom_options'] ){
    		foreach ( $custom_options_order['et_custom_options'] as $custom_option_title ){
    			$cf = get_post_meta( $post->ID, '_et_cf_' . $custom_option_title, true );
    			if ( '' != $cf ){
    				$cf = editable_post_meta( get_the_ID(), '_et_cf_' . $custom_option_title, 'input' );
    				$output .= '<div class="elist_cf">';
    				$output .= 		'<h3>' . esc_html( $custom_options[$custom_option_title]['title'] ) . ':' . '</h3>';
    				$output .= 		wpautop( wp_kses_post( $cf ) );
    				$output .= '</div> <!-- end .elist_cf -->';
    	$output = apply_filters( 'elist_additional_info', $output );
    	if ( '' != $output ) { ?>
    		<div class="hr"></div>
    		<section id="listing_info">
    			<h1><?php esc_html_e( 'Additional Info', 'eList' ); ?></h1>
    			<?php echo $output; ?>

    When the user logs in they are able to edit the post just fine… however I cant get the additional information section of the site to be editable.

    Thanks for your help

    You’re doing two things wrong here:

    1) Posting in an unrelated thread, instead of opening a new one.
    2) Posting the issue on github and then after only 15 minutes posting it again. This is not ok.

    I’ve already replied on github:

    Please be more patient next time.


    Apologies…. I was uncertain if my post on github worked. thank you for the quick reply!
