Custom Fields in WPMU

You can now use custom fields to execute functions in WPMU!
Currently there’s only one function, that’s “photoblog” but more will come.
When you’re writing a post, click the “advanced editing” button and scroll down. You’ll see text boxes where you can enter custom field keys and values. Now, edit your blog post.html in the template editor and add {custom_fields} where you’d like the output to appear.
For my last post I used “photoblog” as the key, and “20040922” as the value. The photo will appear tomorrow and I avoid all the nasty Javascript I had before!
