    Hi, I’m using BuddyBlog to let users populate a custom post type on my site — I’ve noticed we can currently only let them add a single featured image.

    Ideally, we’d like folks to be able to upload multiple images (and associated captions), which we can then assign to the post via ACF.

    Is there any workaround for this — or is this feature coming?

    Thanks in advance!

    Ryan

    Hi Ryan,
    Thank you for using the plugin.

    The Featured Image is a WordPress core feature(Post thumbnail) and that’s why there is only one.

    If you need more images, you can use our upcoming image field type and store it as part of the meta. We are almost done with our new Field Type API and I am expecting it to go live in next 5-7 working days.

    We will have image/file and other field types too.

    Thank you
    Brajesh

    Hi Ryan, Jahnel
    Thank you for the patience.

    We have released first iteration of our New Field Type API with support for the image, oembed, rich text editor custom fields.

    We do plan to allow selecting image size and adding validation(+ a few more new field types) in next one week.

    Please do let me know if you need any new field type added.

    Regards
    Brajesh

    Hi Ryan,
    The update is already available with the custom fields.
    Our next update will have extra settings for the same.

    What version of the plugin is it? I don’t have the option to add images via custom fields, using BuddyBlog Pro Version 1.0.7
