    I want to use custom fields to populate some of the fixed items in every blog post.

    Do you know if there is any plugin which will help me provide compare posts feature on wordpress. User selects posts (Adds to cart maybe) and then hits compare and on that page I show all those custom fields from every post?

    How can I achieve this feature?

    Thanks for your help.

    Are you asking for a list of custom fields, say the keys, regardless of what posts they are assigned?

    Doesn't matter if it's tags or categories or custom fields, what vikassah wants is to compare 2 (or more) posts.
    So somewhere in some post listings there should be a "remember this post" checkbox, and then we'd need another "show remembered posts" link that will display the posts the user checked, allowing for a side-by-side comparison.

    I'm actually workin on something like that, or actually, looking for a way to do this :)
    We used it in our old CMS which was custom-built for the user to check certain speakers we had in our speakerpool and then have a list of "favorites" where he could then compare audio samples and see which speaker fit for his production.

    Basically it is a sort of "shopping cart" system, without the checkout, obviously.

    Any other insights, maybe?

    Found something:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-favorite-posts/

    This will let you mark posts as "favorites", then lists all your favorites.
    I guess we'd just need to edit the output to show contents and custom fields in that list.
