I want to create a software reviews site based on categories. I really like what Gizmo did (see link below)


there is an Intro text followed by top 3 softwares (more or less) with pros/ cons/ rating fields.

I tried many plugins but all of them I should pre define all my fields , In other words , If I want to put 2 programs with predefined fields , I should have only created fields for only these 2 apps but what If I want to create 3 or more apps ??

what I want exactly is a plugin which I can create with it a group of fields , when I press a (+plus) button or something In my Editor , it shows the fields , and when I press it again , it shows the same type of fields again (duplication). I hope Any one could understand me because I'm not that good in English.


Finally I found what I was looking for :)

Magic fields !

Although I tried it before and I did know it can duplicate single fields , but I just realized it can create groups which can be dublicated just as I want :)

this plug in is even more than I wanted, Thanks every one.

Its the second time i find myself recommending this plugin today, ProjectManager is a plugin that will answer most of your requirements.

here is a screencast of how to use it

thanks for your reply, I tried it but it was not as functional as I need. I know it can do what I asked for, but the part of inserting data sets and then recalling it in the text editor throught shortcode is not good for all users. however I found the pligin I want , but still have problems in outputing its data in my template have a look here wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-fields it's very simple, functional and repeatable ! but very bad support :( I'm still trying it now, If any one have a good alternative plz tell me :) – Bialy Jul 25 '11 at 11:14
I've used simple fields and its a great plugin, maybe i can help you with it, what are the problem you are having? – Bainternet Jul 25 '11 at 11:44
I don't know how to output the repeatble field groups in my template ! what code should I put in my template file ? sorry but I'm not a php coder :( can you help me with that ?? – Bialy Jul 25 '11 at 12:01
you ca get the meta data by clicking on "show custom field keys" and use it with get_post_meta(); in your template – Bainternet Jul 25 '11 at 13:00
ok, I know , but this works for single fields (not repeatable groups) you can check this link eskapism.se/code-playground/simple-fields/tutorial-part-2 I used method 4 but it shows me the array (not only the values !) here is my code <?php $selected_values = simple_fields_get_post_group_values(get_the_id(), "Application", true, 1); print_r($selected_values); ?> – Bialy Jul 25 '11 at 13:08
