I'm doing research on custom post types for a Wordpress site I'm going to be putting together for a client of mine. The basics of the Custom Post Type seem pretty straight forward. What I'm trying to determine is the best way that I could have an image gallery as part of my custom post type.
For example, a custom post type would be a car. In addition to the details of the car (make, model, year, mileage, etc.) there will be 1-n images associated with it that should be part of the post (modified inside the post, removed along with the post, etc.) Ideally I'd want thumbnail images that open up to a lightbox of some sort.
Hopefully this is something that can be accomplished without totally hacking up Wordpress.
