I need to convert a MovableType site I built in 2006 to MT4. The site is a complicated web-application built with MT that relies heavily on Kevin Shay’s RightFields. RightFields has not been updated to MT4, so I’m moving the RightFields functionality to the new “Professional Pack” version of CustomFields.
Before it was snatched up by SixApart, CustomFields 2.1b4 from Movalog had KeyValue support… I can’t seem to find any info if this functionality is still in the new “Professional Pack” version of CustomFields for MT4.1b2. No one at SixApart seems to know. Crazy that they would buy and restrict CustomFields to commercial users (which I am)— despite having it voted one of the most valuable MT plugins.
Does anyone know if Brad Choate’s Key Values plugin required— or is there a similar Extended Entry value parsing built directly into CustomFields? I’ve been trying to use the following syntax in the Extended Entry to test a CustomField with external clients (Ecto and MarsEdit)
I’ve also tried:
I just don’t seem to be able to update or set the CustomFields for an entry with key values. Any tips or insight would be greatly appreicated.
