As announced before, GD Content Tools Pro will be a plugin to replace old GD Custom Posts and Taxonomies Tools Pro plugin. And, here is the preview #3 for the new plugin, showing meta box on the term edit panel.

Meta boxes and custom fields got major rewrite with the new plugin. And one of the most important aspects of that is to add support for editing meta for terms and users. The image on the right shows the meta box added to the term edit page. And, as you can see, it will support everything that works with the post edit meta boxes, including tabs and repeaters.

Meta boxes will work with posts, terms, and users. For terms support, the plugin will require the use of WordPress 4.3 or newer (for terms meta support). And, the plugin will again support the integration of meta boxes into bbPress topic and reply editors.

Final element of meta boxes support will be to have easy to use development objects and functions to get saved meta data, and that will be in the next preview.

GD Content Tools Pro will be released in about 2 weeks. The first plan was to have it out by the end of July, but it was better to time new release for the end of Summer, so some other plugins were in development. Now, GD Content Tools Pro is getting ready, and if everything goes as planned, it should be released on September 5, 2016.
