Custom field and display in ad loop
I want a custom field in the ads
like "Sell", "BUY", "EXCHANGE"
I made a custom field as radio button put that in the forms
and tried to write the php script in the loop ad listing.
if i check the value of that custom field is one of the above. BUT in fact the words "SELL" has to be in GREEK.. "ΠΟΥΛΑΩ".
1. I will have a translation problem if i hard code this...
2. The php does not support Unicode.
So.. i there a way that the form when i input the values
1. has different labels and values. i.e Displays SELL but stores ΠΟΥΛΑΩ.
2. OR Displays SELL but stores numbers. i.e 1 for Sell, 2 for Buy, and so on....
If i put 3 checkboxes and stores a YES as value for each custom field i can manage to show that properly but its not my first option.
Then again i don't know if i can do it with custom taxonomy, but customfields seem more proper for my problem.
Do other people that have websites other than english have the same problem with me?
Thank you all in advance
