Do you plan to include any custom fields in the single bits content section and/or is there a way to do it now ?

 

I current use the Excerpt field a lot and single bits solved a huge problem for me, thank you for that.

 

But there are one or two other custom fields, I would like to add so am editorial user for example, can make all the updates on the wordpress admin panel without any risk of moving or deleting sections... or needing to learn the DMS interface.

 

.ps I thought I asked this before, but cannot find the post, so apologies in advance if you already answered this.

 

thank again

Are you using a plugin for the custom fields or adding through custom meta? Some plugins like Types and Advanced Custom Fields have shortcodes that again you can use PL Nextbox to add the shortcodes. If you added the fields in the custom meta then I can help you with the function to put in PL Nextbox to display them.

I've been meaning to write a tutorial, your use case will help me put one together.

Let me know how the custom fields were created and I'll help you get them displayed.

I use Types for custom posts but have no experience creating custom fields, other than my failed experiments here,, so I am happy to take your advice on the preferred method to best integrate with single bits.

 

btw

 

I did just try now to generate a shortcode and display it in a PL nextbox, and it worked but I will wait an see which route you suggest.

 

thank you once again, both for single bits and your great help

antipodes Since you already have Types installed then best to use it for creating the custom fields, it's easy as you see by adding the shortcode into the PL Nextbox to display the value of the custom field in your single template.

 

Sounds like you are doing great displaying content using Single Bits and PL Nextbox.

 

Let me know if you need further help.

      Help! I urgently need to remove the "This post was last edited..." that is now appearing anywhere that I've used Single Bits for a post. 
      James Giroux kindly provided this reply...but it does nothing. HELP! 
      This is from the Single Bits section by Ellen.  The code to add to the functions.php to remove this is:
      if(class_exists('elsueSingleBitsPlugin')) { $instance = elsueSingleBitsPlugin::this(); remove_filter('the_content', array($instance , 'add_mod_hatom_data'), 5 ); }

      I'm stuck in a loop. We're developing a magazine type format and having been using Single Bits Single Post as the template..fine, no problem. Looks great! 
      But, some of the articles now have either a lot of media, or multi media, so we wanted to set up another template for these posts. But, if I change the media content on one post, it 
      changes it on the others. I've tried setting up Custom Posts, but that removes the post from the wp post "categories" and then deletes the post from something like HoverNews that pulls by category. 
      So how do I have the media change for each post? I've tried setting up a separate template for each of these particular, media specific posts...but that doesn't help either because they are posts, not pages. 
      Can PM you the link as the site is not live yet. Thanks!!

      I want to change the text color of the post title in a specific post - How do I do that through CSS?
       
      I've downloaded a plugin which allows me to add custom CSS in specific posts, but I do not seem to get the selectors right.
       
      I am using the light-bg class on the single-bit container as well, which then includes a single-bit with the post title.

      I am working on a website right now that uses custom tab colors that also match the background color of the tab content area. However, when a tab is open the tab bg color appear slightly different than the bg of the content area. I have double checked all my setting and can't seem to find a way to override this. 
       
      Would a link be helpful so you can see what I am referring to? I will include a screenshot in case that works...
       
      Thank you so much for all your help!
