    Hi there,

    My client has a website I made with propulsion.

    The website is being used as a lookbook for models.

    I decided to have a separate widget for every model to display their sizes etc.

    My client has over 140 models and thus over 140 widgets.

    When a new widget is being saved the saving proces is becoming really slow

    and eventually the browser even crashes.

    I am currently using a plugin called widget Ninja to allocate the widgets to the right pages.

    Do you guys know of another solution I could dive into. instead of using widgets there must be

    a more efficient way of adding the model information per page and in the sidebar.

    Thank you very much…

    Hi BenWorx,

    Very dangerous system since WordPress widgets are a little unstable. If you were to ever remove a widget are from within the middle of the group all those after would move one page up in the list.

    The one thing I can think of would be to make a new custom template for each model page and then have it pull meta data for a specific page which then displays that models data.

    This is what Angular does which also has each of the meta items for each portfolio item customizable: http://www.kriesi.at/themes/angular/

    Hi Devin,

    Thanx for the reply… Let me check if I got you right:

    1. Drop the widget solution as it is too instable

    2. Create for each model page a seperate template (140+ templates isn’t unstable or makes the site slow?)

    3. I don’t really get the meta data part, can you explain a bit more?

    Thanx

    No, a single wordpress template file that displays meta data. So an actual php file that just as some additional changes to it.

    See: http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#Creating_Your_Own_Page_Templates

    and for the custom meta data fields use Custom Fields: http://codex.wordpress.org/Custom_Fields
