Re: yab_article_crossref - cross-reference articles in custom fields

Hmm. I’ve put it in on a fresh install and get nothing. No indication that it is there. Is GLZ_Custom_FIelds an issue?

Hm could be, depending on the usage of glz_cf. Yab_article_crossref will modify the custom_field in the article write tab to an dropdown menu (HTML select element). This could interfere with the glz_cf for the same field.

Re: yab_article_crossref - cross-reference articles in custom fields

I am also using glz_cf in conjunction with yab_article_crossref.

Am i supposed to edit your plugin first to put in at least the ID of an empty custom field?

In fact i cannot find out even the ID other than using phpMyAdmin to look straight into the database itself.
Neither glz_cf nor the admin preferences tab show IDs of custom fields in 4.6.2

Hi Jayrope,

Yes.

You have to put at least the number of the custom_field in the config array (field custom_field_nr) in the plugin code.

In fact i cannot find out even the ID other than using phpMyAdmin to look straight into the database itself.
Neither glz_cf nor the admin preferences tab show IDs of custom fields in 4.6.2

Go to »admin« -> »preferences« -> »cutom fields« in the textpattern backend. Here you find the custom fields and the number of the field.
Note: Do not forget to fill in the blanks here. The custom field can only be used if its properly named here, of course.

On my demoshop it looks the following (Textpattern 4.6.2 with hive neutral theme):
