Custom fields for Joomla

Who has not had the need to have more structured content in Joomla. Add a video or geo-location to certain articles or extend the user fields with an image. There are very powerful content constructions kits out there but a lot of the times they are overkill.
Custom fields are high on Joomlers wish list and that wish is to be granted in one of the upcoming 3.x releases. Allon Moritz from Digital Peak has contributed his DPFIelds to Joomla Core. You can start using DPFIelds today and be assured that it will evolve into core supported custom Fields.
I will be taking you through the process adding fields to articles, users or modules and even your own extension, explain how these fields can be selectively applied and ultimately visualised.
