Projects Name label - global settings?

Question

Posted · Report post

Dear Nick, I am sorry to trouble you with something I thought I could figure out myself. Where do I set global settings for the Name labels (the way you set Client, Date, Category etc. as a default for everything)? I checked Page Options and could not find it there, and for now I have to add it in manually every time. 

 

Apart from that, the section looks great! Thank you, regards Jan.

Dear Nick, perfect. Patience abounds, thankfully. Do finish the forthcoming epic section first... Yours faithfully, Jan.

That's a really great question! Unfortunately there aren't global defaults for this, as they are each on their own so to speak. Each project is a custom post type which uses a completely different system of saving the options. I will however at least look into the possibility of this in the future.

Dear Nick, no problem. It would be nice but of course isn't such a big deal after all - I'm glad just to know that I can change it easily.

 

While I am practically talking to you: Something that would be very useful for me would be an ability to dynamically sort the projects by categories. I don't know if that is the right language, but I have seen this for galleries: 

 

I have all the projects, and above them four tabs, in my case something like this:

1. All projects

2. Student projects

3. Teacher training projects

4. Production projects

When I press one of them, only the projects in this category are displayed, thus allowing the reader to taxonomise...

 

That is probably a big deal and a fully fledged feature request, although of course you already allow categories to be set. It's just a thought.

 

Thank you for your swift reply. The new forum looks very reassuring! Greetings, Jan.
