AWESOME plugin, just needs compatibility with Custom Post Templates
By , for WP 4.1.1

I spent about two hours trying to hack in this functionality, but I couldn't do it.

Here is a screenshot of my hack but it doesn't work:

Basically I want to be able to choose by Post Template. It works if I do it by Category, but then the extra fields show on EVERY post in the category, even the ones not using the custom post template.

So if you could add this functionality so that I can choose Post Template that I created using the Custom Post Templates, that would be great!

p.s. Those post template do show up under Page Templates dropdown, however if I choose this option on a Post then the custom fields do not show up.

UPDATE:

Shortly after sending an email to the developer he replied (on a Sunday!) saying there is already a plugin to expand this functionality!!

Hi there

Thanks for the email and support.

A plugin exists for post template location rule support!

Cant rate it enough..
By , for WP 4.1.1

Really cant rate the plugin enough;

Not sure how people are struggling too use it and complaining regarding documentation; I was not even aware there was documentation it did not seem like rocket science to use.

Ive used this extensively now for many different applications.

for those saying you are unable to see if a field is set perhaps simple using ob_start(); > ob_end_clean(); to capture the output into a variable and then using said variable to see if it is set, not the cleanest approach but it works..

Terrible
By , for WP 4.1.1

Many problems:

1: Unhelpful and lack of documentation, or if there is any its useless.

2: Lack of support, or rather any reply is the author telling you to go to this page of documentation (see reason 1).

3: The support forum is just as bad (see option 1 and 2).

4: No replies from their email support and if there is see option 2!

It doesnt even have ReCaptcha, or a field to allow a front end user to manually set the category/tag.

I wouldn't advise buying pro. theyre clearly only after the money.
