Custom Field Bulk Editor
[resolved] multiple values for custom field (3 posts)

    I'm not clear on how the "multiple values" option works. I'd like to add a custom field for a bunch of posts in a category, but have each post get a different value for that field. It appears this is possible with the "Add New Custom Fields Instead of Updating (this allows you to create multiple values per name)" option, but I don't see how I can enter all the values for each post? What's the secret? Or am I misunderstanding the feature?
    For example, if I have checked
    postone
    posttwo
    postthree
    in my list of posts, I add a custom field named "displayorder" for these posts.
    I'd also like to be able to assign unique values for each one so postone gets "2" posttwo gets "1" and postthree gets "3"
    Is there a trick to delimiting values in the value field or a way to quickly enter these values?

    So what you actually want to do is to click the "Switch to Multi Value Mode" at the top of the screen and it will let you enter a different value for each post in that mode. Just make sure to check the box next to any post you are changing or it won't save.

    Thanks for the speedy response!
    I have that annoying "JetPack" banner that dominates the top, and I completely missed that button. Derp. Thanks much. This plug in is brilliant!
