In part 3 of our seminar How to Create a Recipe Site Using Thesis 2 with Custom Post Types & Custom Post Meta we show how to create Custom Post Meta Fields for the recipes.
Adding Custom Fields
Rick: Now, the easiest custom field to add would just be well, let’s see. We’ll call it Directions.
Rick: And we’re not going to give it a description because that doesn’t really matter. We’re going to only place it on Recipes and that’s it actually. So then if we look back at this thing, let’s say we’ve got…
Member: The ingredients?
Rick: Well, let’s see. Okay, so you’ve got, we’ll call it Ingredients, Method and well, let’s just do those two things at the moment.
Rick: Now, we’ll give it title Ingredients and Method. We’ll have those three things and each of those are going to be…let’s see, title will be single line and the title is going to be Title, recipe-title and the field can have only one value, we’re not going to make it required, that’s fine but we’ll save that.
And then we’re going to add a WYSIWYG and we’ll call that one Ingredients and we’ll call that recipe-ingredients and we’ll save that one. And then we’ll create one more WYSIWYG and this will be Method and again the slug will be recipe-method and save it.
So we’ve got those three custom post meta fields and we’re just going to save this and now if we come back over to our Recipes…oh, let’s add a new recipe.
