Custom Fields Question

  • # December 1, 2009 at 3:35 am

    New to this.
    Just need a bit of a logic check.

    I am building a site for a musician who wants to edit it himself – so I’m using WordPress.
    Thinking about the ‘REVIEWS’ section.

    So far I would :

    Create custom fields for TITLE, AUTHOR, PUBLICATION, CONTENT on a post page.
    Then call the custom fields into divs I have set up in my PHP file, so that I can style them individually with CSS.

    If I have multiple REVIEWS, incoming and managed by the client, how do I code it?

    REVIEW 1

    REVIEW 2

    REVIEW 3


    I haven’t done much of this. If you could point me to an appropriate article or just explain the logic of it to me.

    I understand you can call posts. You can also call specific elements of posts.
    But I do not know what the POST NUMBER will be, how do I call it?

    I am sure PHP / WORDPRESS has a function for this.

    i don’t know much php, but you might learn something form this video … wordpress/

    I don’t know if it will solve your problems, but it’s worth a look

    I would recommend Magic Fields plugin. Easy to use and great support forum.
