As discussed in some other thread. In WordPress using custom defined meta panels to define different attributes of various post formats is not a good practice. Because whenever our customer decided to change the theme he will lose all values defined in those meta fields.
Now, sometime ago, i hear that WordPress developers were planning to incorporate some standard fields in backend which we can use to define and grab values from it. But then the news came that this functionality is not ready yet and its being developed as a plugin now. Plugin link here: https://github.com/crowdfavorite/wp-post-formats/
Now my question is, whether using this plugin to incorporate in our themes is a good idea right now? or is it too early?
