    I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR THIS KIND OF THING FOREVER.
    Thank You.

    One question - my goal is to label articles like "short" or "long" - also with things like "customer is looking for vision for business" and "heavy on the imagery" - things like that.

    The goal is to become a better writer.

    Any plugin that you know of that allows tracking that in Google Analytics? Or do you know how do create the custom segments in GA?

    Thanks, Gregory

    I use Scott's excellent get_recent_custom() function (in this plugin) to store labels for display outside of the page or post loop, too.

    For example, Let's say I have a totally custom layout using the WP logic as a CMS. I need some fields that are not associated with any particular post -- perhaps to allow the client to change a color value in the css or the number of sub-pages to display in the parent page (with various field data, etc)... I don't want this controlled by the WordPress Settings (rather not have them edit any of that, frankly)... so, in my homepage, I store custom field keys and values for those things.

    Then, using c2c_get_recent_custom() [because it isn't in the loop] I can get the value of the key and store it in a variable then use the var in my php.

    Here's an example:

    <?php
    $pages = get_pages('child_of=3&sort_column=menu_order&sort_order=ASC');
    $count = 0;
    foreach($pages as $page)
    {
    $cpimage = get_post_meta($page->ID,'cpimg',true);
    $cpitalic = get_post_meta($page->ID,'cptagline',true);
    $cpbrief = get_post_meta($page->ID,'cpdescription',true);
    $numpages = c2c_get_recent_custom('show-cps');
    $content = $page->post_content;
    if(!$content)
    continue;
    if($count >= $numpages)
    break;
    $count++;
    //$content = apply_filters('the_content', $content);
    ?>

    The more I use this fab plugin, the more uses I find FOR IT. So Scott, just know that it is the FIRST plugin I install for ANY WordPress site I build! It is my favorite and I cannot help but show folks on this forum how versatile it is!
