I'm building a site with approximately 5 different channels and five different field groups. The home page of the site has multiple "feature" areas that can feature any of the entries from any of those channels. I need a way to allow users to "flag" an entry as a feature for the home page, then for an admin to take that entry and place it in any one of the 5 feature areas of the home page.
I have the second part of this equation (the admin placing the feature) figured out — I'm using Low Variables and Playa for that and it's amazing. It's the first part (users flagging entries as features in the control panel) that I haven't been able to hammer down a great method for.
As I mentioned, any one of the 5 or so channels can have entries flagged as a feature, and each of those channels has a different field group. When flagging any entry as a feature there are a few required things:
- Feature Image
That goes for any entry in any channel. The tricky thing for me is the fact that I can't have similarly titled fields in different field groups.
Any ideas on ways to pull this off so it's not a convoluted process for the user?
