Spent some lunch hours this week working on “post meta” hacks for WordPress. This will allow users to add arbitrary extra fields to their blog posts. Stuff like “current mood”, “now reading”, “listening to”, etc. Some prototype functions have been added to CVS, but the interface for actually adding data to posts hasn’t been done yet. We’re still discussing exactly how we’re going to implement the template functions for the new data. In my test blog, I just made a function that spits the data out as a list of key:value pairs, basically.
