Using Custom Fields

Posted by on Friday, December 21, 2012 in FAQ.

If the Custom Fields option isn’t showing on your Edit Page  / Edit Post Screen — Click on SCREEN OPTIONS in the upper right corner.  And be sure the “Custom Fields” option is clicked.

 

If you have never used a custom field before you will type in the name of the custom field — for this example I have called it “code”. And in the VALUE box — paste in the embed code or other text you are wanting to use as a custom field. Then click ADD CUSTOM FIELD to save the data you just entered.

 

To actually display the custom field on your page — in your content where you want to display it — enter the shortcode for the customfield as shown in the screenshot below.  When you preview your page — it will replace the shortcode with the value of the customfield.
