Just a quick heads up. On localhost, with windows and wamp, i wanted to check it out, but it’s full of errors and does not work.
I think custom post type is good to keep in the theme otherwise it will take more time for buyers to import demo content. For example for portfolio – buyer need to install portfolio plugin and import demo content for portfolio posts and same for other post types like testimonials, team members, sliders, FAQs etc. – this is time consuming for buyers. We (all authors) have different (or unique) design for all post types in each theme and for this we have to make each post types plugin for each theme – this is time consuming for authors.
Totally agreed. Post types should be kept inside.
@carlhancock – well explained.
Thanks guys for your feedback on my not on topic questions.
@kaptinlin – i have no idea if your English skills are not good enough, and was not intended, but what you said there is offensive. So everybody who talked about the changes here has no relevance. It’s time that YOU came and made everything right. This sounds really rude, and i really feed offended.
So nothing easy or that you have done before. If you use the post types, how do they order the slides?
Thanks for the metafileds for the taxonomies. I had no idea of that tutorial For the order i mean drag and drop order and not the query order. Also thanks for the second link. Good info if i really need to use update_option
Also a little question – update option saves values for every website in a multisite or you have to manage that too? It does, dosen’t it?
Ok, lets say we are using a custom post type called slide with the taxonomy slideshow. How you you order the slides in a particalar slideshow aka order custom post types for a particular term in a taxonomy? And not all of them at once. Also how do you add extra fields for customisation for the slideshows, aka add custom fields for taxonomies. If you have tutorials or ideas on this i can say that CPT are for us too. Give us an idea?
duotive saidI think they meant not to change the values of default wp tables.
ChapterThemes saidYea, but – “The database shouldn’t be accessed or modified directly. If there is a defined function that can get the data you need, that needs to be used instead. ”
duotive saidOfcourse you are allowed to create database tables. WordPress offers that option and MANY plugins use it. So no worries for that to not to be allowed.
In the update please make clear if we are allowed to create database tables to use with the theme and if functionality like the slideshow management should be moved to a plugin.
That is not clear to me and db tables are the core of the themes we have.
