I have added a field for one of my fee plans which is an url that directs to a calandar page on my site. It seems to work well but I would like to have the same url and so it would not be altered for each listing. The problem is that now I have to go into the listing and add the url. Is there any way I can just set the url for the field if they buy this plan? Also, can I make a button for this field also?
Unfortunately, both of the items you’ve asked for would require hacking the plugin as we do not support these features right now. Making a button would require direct customization and similarly, settings a default value for a custom field is also something that would need hacking. However, you CAN use the in-built CSV export & import features to bulk update the field value (i.e. add the calandar URL) for multiple listings if you want.
Basically, when you are doing a bulk edit of your listings in BD, you will want to re-import the data BACK into BD when you are done. To do this, you need to make sure you select the “Export Sequence ID” option when you are exporting to make sure you can re-import and match the listings back when you’re done.
