Support » Requests and Feedback » [Plugin: NextGEN Custom Fields] feature request – per gallery custom fields

  • Hi Shaun,

    Awesome plugin (for an awesome plugin)!

    I was wondering if you might possibly add a feature to restrict custom fields to certain galleries.

    …Something like this:

    Image Custom Fields (Add custom fields to be added to images inside NextGEN Galleries)
    Display Name:
    Field Type:
    *** Use in these galleries: [All galleries or select from current galleries]

    Gallery Custom Fields (Add custom fields to be added to NextGEN Galleries)
    Display Name:
    Field Type:
    *** Use in these galleries: [All galleries or select from current galleries]

    Currently, the custom fields show up everywhere, and I think it would be quite nice to have the option to limit the fields to certain galleries.

    What do you think?

    Thank you,

    goto10

  • Hey goto10

    I have had a request like this before. I vaguely remember there being a limitation from NextGEN that would always show all fields on the manage gallery screen.
    It is a great idea, and I would like to make it happen. I am a little tied up right now, but I will re-look at this when I get a chance. Maybe there’s a way around it with some sneaky javascript or something 🙂

    Thanks for the feedback, it’s always great to here from people using my work!

    Hi Shaun,

    That sounds great! Thanks for the reply.

    Good call on the javascript too.

    Hi goto10

    I have started on this feature. You can download the latest development version from http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nextgen-gallery-custom-fields/download/ by clicking on the ‘development version’ link.

    Please be sure to run the upgrade URL, to rebuild the database and run some clean-up tasks (http://www.example.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=nextgen-gallery-custom-fields/ngg-custom-fields.php&mode=upgrade)

    The new feature available is the ability to link fields to only certain galleries. The interface should be easy enough to understand.

    There are still things I am working on (hence it still being development).

    Let me know if you have any troubles / feedback!

    Hey Shauno,

    Thanks!

    What a great surprise! I’ve been testing the new development version out and I’m very happy with it. It does exactly what I needed. I’ll keep you posted on everything.

    Cheers

    [edit: spelling]

    Glad you like it 🙂

    I did mess up my some version details when I uploaded the code yesterday, so you might want to download the latest version, 0.6.

    When you unlink a field from a gallery, the plugin will now also delete any data saved for that field, in that gallery.

    I think I’m pretty much done with this feature now, unless you have any other suggestions, or come across any bugs.

    Hey Shaun,

    I went ahead and updated from the dev version to 0.6. I’ve tested it out, and so far so good. I’ll let you know if I run into any bugs or anything. (Seems good to me though!) Feature-wise – it’s exactly what I was after.

    Thanks again, and nice work!
