The recently released version 1 of Simple Fields added a nice feature called “field extensions“: using a simple API, developers can add their own custom field types to the plugin. Nice indeed.
For one of our WordPress projects we needed to be able to attach a location to each post, so we though that “hey, let’s make that a field in simple fields!”. Said and done, the plugin is here and it’s called “Simple Fields Map extension” and so far it’s been a joy to use.
If you need to add one or several locations to a post in WordPress then give this plugin a try. It’s really really nice and useful.
Yes, the great – prepare for SEO Keyword madness! – WordPress custom fields plugin Simple Fields is now actively developed by us here at EarthPeople.
This is thanks to the fact that the plugin creator Pär since a while back spends his days at our office, typing away on his Macbook Air or browsing the WordPress Codex trying to remember if the function was called “get_title()” or “get_the_title()”. And … yes, sometimes he also updates the plugin from here.
So, be happy, do cool WordPress stuff, and read more about Simple Fields on it’s own domain simple-fields.com.
