I have downloaded your TBTestimonial Plugin to install for a client. Love the plugin. Tons of options. Wondering if there is easy way to add custom fields to admin that would go with the custom template tags you describe creating in your documentation. I can create a “twig” template tag for use in the template output, wondering if there is an easy way to get a corresponding field in the admin so that the custom data can be entered as well as displayed in the template.

There’s no integrated way with the plugin but you could try something like Advanced Custom Fields which would be great for this I think.

Other than that really you would have to create the meta boxes and then save their data on save_post.

Thanks for using TB-Testimonials!

Ok. I can work with that. Thanks for the update. Just curious though, where would somebody have a need for the template tag, which is basically a variable container, if there is no way of instantiating a custom variable within the plugin? Or is that being included now because you have plans to add custom variables in the future?

It was a way for programmers to extend the default functionality of the plugin really. I’ve never actually considered adding a way to create your own metaboxes through the plugin itself. I think it would be a great idea for a future version though!

Sorry I did not mark this as resolved sooner.
You answered my question and I just spaced on following up.
I have marked it resolved and thanks for all the hard work.
