I’ll add one more in case there ends up being a demand:

Multimedia Item

I’ve worked on a couple church themes and for publishing sermons I use a multimedia CPT with fields allowing for Audio, Video and PDF . The taxonomies cover Category, Tag and Speaker. By using generic names (Multimedia instead of Sermon and Speaker instead of Pastor, for example), non-church websites have used the theme for presentations and teaching of various types.

These standardized custom post types are long over due. If they ever materialize I would be very interested in using and supporting them in my theme. However, how useful they would be to buyers would depend on how many other theme authors (both in this marketplace and further afield) also choose to use them. I think the very first step would be standardizing the custom post type names and taxonomies. This is something maybe the WordPress team should have done when they first introduced custom post types.

Perhaps some fields similar to the results you get from wp_get_attachment_metadata, would be useful for Photographers.


A field to display the larger image in a lightbox

Isn’t really necessary since you can get the largest image uploaded using WordPress’ wp_get_attachment_image_src function.

Thus far, the proposed fields for the portfolio plugin are:
  • date
  • url
  • client

You shouldn’t need a date field. Every post already has a date field, you should use that.

Also, if you’re going to handle Portfolio items, then you’d have to account for the different types of items, whether they be pictures, video, audio items, magazine articles, etc…

You might be interested to know that Types plugin might be a good start to build exactly what you’re looking for.

It has an embedded mode, which lets you use it in themes. This way, you can design the portfolio CPT and the required fields using the plugin version, export the settings and include the embedded version in your theme.

The embedded version will declare the CPTs and taxonomies and setup the meta boxes in the post edit screens. There’s also a full API for rendering different types of fields.

We just need to know which fields we need, and “date” is one of those fields. The implementation isn’t really that important at this stage.

To me, something like that is overly complex for what I need to do. I think I’ll pass on using it. It’s a cool plugin though.

Date field is there just in case publish date differs from it. Let’s say you’re adding a portfolio item for a job you did in last 3 months.

CPT Taxonomy can be used for that.

I think more than a taxonomy would be needed. I suggested a video_url field earlier since it is very common to add YouTube, Vimeo, and other remotely hosted videos to portfolios. An audio_url for MP3 ’s could also be a consideration. It’s simple and the user would have the freedom to use an uploaded file or external source.

Sorry for misunderstanding, this is how I see it:

- post formats should be used for video/images/audio etc.

- magazine article should be taxonomy
