Feature Request: custom fields for additional data in page extention #119
As a user I want to have the possibility to add additional data to my pages. To achieve this I need custom fields to render this data in different areas with special styles in my template.
I dream about something like AdvancedCustomFields extension for Wordpress.
Based on the idea of different page templates (#118).
As A long time user (and part-time dev) of ZOO I love being able to build little custom elements for my ZOO apps... I can do this quickly and apply then to views quickly.
Creating new ZOO apps is easy also.
If this simplicity was brought to bare on PageKit custom fields that would make PageKit truly great.
@aheinze Actually this feature is perfectly integrated in Cockpit CMS. There one can create custom "regions" by defining content fields and custom, self defined "collections" and "galleries". With these tools on deck one can create all the flexibility needed to create almost any custom scenario.
Cockpit has no menu or multipage integration which requieres some development creativity. A mix of both worlds seems appealing.
What are your thoughts on this?
If we are to take any lessons from ZOO and ZOO's elements/positions/views structure...
It would be nice to be able to mix positions and elements.
Currently in ZOO we put elements inside a position then we call that in the view with:
And this renders out any elements that are in that position, with whatever parameters are set etc.
That is an excellent feature and very flexible. But it would also be nice to simply grab an element directly, while running element specific functions if required. So something like:
Having something like this in pagekit custom layouts would be really flexible and allow sitebuilders to offer very flexible layouts and content creation.
Sorry to necro this issue, but it'd be nice to see this feature added to the Blog extension. A useful example of why I'd want this feature could be something like:
I don't know, I guess I can't really think of anything else at the moment. My contact lens is falling out of my left eye, so that has me a bit distracted...
