Field Day: Custom Fields on Steroids
in plugin: Field Day is a plugin for Movable Type that lets you add more fields to the MT interface. How is it different from MT’s built-in “Commercial Pack” implementation of custom fields?
- You can define fields for templates, assets, comments, and blogs, as well as system-wide fields.
- Linked object field types let you connect any supported object type to any other.
- By organizing fields into groups and allowing multiple instances of each group, you can allow users to associate an unlimited amount of data with a given object.
