Beta 6 Testing

… to start, thank you!

What a response! I sent out an email last night and I’ve had a great response from people offering to test the Beta of version 6 of the Weight Tracker plugin. Thank you!

What is in Version 6?

Besides several tweaks to the back end, updated languages (including Russian being added) and various bug fixes…. Custom Fields! Custom Fields will allow you to define custom questions to ask your members when completing weight entries, for example;

  • “Did you stick to your diet?”
  • “How many cups of water did you drink?”
  • “How many miles did you run?”
  • “What did you think of this week?”

This data is then exposed in the Weight Tracker > Manage User Data when viewing user’s entries. So far, you will be able to use the following field types to ask questions:

  • Text Field
  • Number Field
  • Yes / No

In subsequent releases I intend to expand this to include additional field types like date pickers, check boxes, drop down lists etc.

Gimme Gimme Gimme….

You can download the beta version using the button below. Before installing, ensure any other version of the plugin has been removed and then upload the zip file via the Plugins admin screen.

Issues? Questions? Feedback?

If you have any issues or questions then please email me. I’m also looking at suggestions on how to expose the Custom Fields data… do we need shortcodes? etc?
