I think its probably easier than I think to do this, but currently its beyond me. If there are any plugins out there I'd prefer to start there rather than develop from scratch, but I'll do what I have to do.
I have already created a custom content type called "biblio" that I will use to hold and display Bibliography info. Each entry will contain:
Title: Will re-use page title field
Abstract: Will re-use content field
Tags: Will re-use Tags field
Authors: Custom field (with ability to add multiple)
Date: Custom field
Publication: Custom field
Doc ID: Custom field
Link to external article: Custom field
Keywords: Custom field (with ability to add multiple)
What I need
- A way to customize the edit post page for my custom content type to show only specified default and custom fields (may not be needed if I can get #2 below)
- A way to be able to bulk edit these in a user friendly way (not using my PHPMyAdmin).
I have tried a number of plugins. One really useful one is Custom Content Type Manager (thanks fireproofsocks, whoever you are). But I still need to be able to do the 2 things I mentioned above.
By way of example there is a great set of plugins next gen gallery plus custom fields for next gen gallery that works how I would like the admin side of my custom content type.
Any info leading to a way to do #1 #2 above would be greatly appreciated.
