Possible to pull custom fields? (5 posts)

    Hi, Love the power and flex of your tool.

    I'm trying to use it as a "Latest News" sidebar and I need to include my custom fields for "source" and "author" under the date. I don't even need to have them exist in the UI as an option, it could just be the default. Is there a (relatively) easy way to do this by modifying that "adv-most-recent.php" file?

    Much thanks for whatever help you can lend.

    btw: this is the code I'm using to call these fields in the post itself..

    <?php $source = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'source', true); ?>
    <?php $writer = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'writer', true); ?>

    <p class="meta"><?php echo $source; ?></p>
    <p class="meta"><?php echo $writer; ?></p>

    I think Mini Loops has the features you need without hacking the plugin. I'd recommend checking that out to see if it will work better for you.

    I'm sorry that I'm a complete moron but 10 months later I'm here trying to set up the mini loops widget again with the custom fields attached to my posts called "source" and "writer". I'm assuming i need to enter something into the custom fields field and then reference it in the item format field but no combination has worked so far. APOLOGIES AND THANKS in advance if you can help.
