I have created a custom post type for a slider (namely Piecemaker). I can add posts with featured images and descriptions, that can be used with the slider. Also, I have added a taxonomy for actually creating the sliders(sort of like a category that represents the slider ID, used for creating multiple sliders).
My problem is setting the transitions, though. The slider transitions are separate from a slider image, so they cannot be specified as meta values of posts.
So, I am thinking, what is the best way to do that. Can I somehow add the ability to specify transitions ? Notice that i don't really want to create a new custom post type to do that. It would be great to have the ability to easily add/remove and edit transitions in the same context of the custom guest post, without them being actual posts (there is no need for that really, they are just simple options).
How would you go about that ? Is there a resource that can help me with that, or a Wordpress preferred way of doing something similar ?
I know that i can always write my own implementation, like a settings panel, but apart from being an overkill, it will be kinda separated from the custom post type. I would really like a way to connect those.
