Screencast #65: Advanced Uses for Custom Fields in WordPress

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


More than any other single feature, what makes WordPress a CMS (as opposed to just a blogging platform) is custom fields. Custom fields are chunks of data that travel along with posts and pages in key/value pairs. This data can be pulled out and used in your templates as you choose, allowing for all kinds of smart and interesting things to be done. Recorded June 23, 2009.

Would be interested to see a part 2 to this video. You transition to the
other site and show how you can filter content using custom fields but you
don’t ever really get into how this is done. Loved the stuff on page
layout using the custom fields but would love more on the filtering
process. Thanks!

Gerson Lima says:
