Create a new plugin folder named
standardized-custom-content inside the
wp-content/plugins folder. Next, create an
index.php file and add an information header to it. If you have forgotten the format, just modify the one from the Hello Dolly plugin. The following is our information header:
/* Plugin Name: Standardized Custom Content Plugin URI: http://www.tipsfor.us/ Description: Forces post-types to use a standard list of custom fields with options for checkboxes, dropdowns, and various text fields. Author: Everett Griffiths Version: 0.1 Author URI: http://www.tipsfor.us/ Based on work by Steve Taylor: http://sltaylor.co.uk/blog/control-your-own-wordpress-custom-fields/ */
Save your work and then try to activate the plugin. ...
