I have reviewed the plugins and I don’t think there is one that does this.
What I am trying to do, is for every site in my network, capture some basic information (beyond site titke & tag line) e.g. an image that represents the site, a short description, and a few other basic fields that help describe the site.
The idea being that I can create an informative index of sites on my top level site.
One approach I have considered is to create a custom post type to collect this info, but in a way that is massive overkill as that would allow multiple descriptions per site.
An alternative is to use a ‘forms’ package (I have very little experience of wordpress forms packages).
Of course, I could go down the route of custom coding that data input and create my own table etc. but that sort of starts to defeat my purpose of using WP in the first place.
So may questions are
1) is there an existing plug-in that is close to my requirements (that perhaps I could tweak) as I said I looked but didn’t see
2) if not, is the ‘forms’ package approach one you’d take, and if so which forms package?
